We know guys like this: totally unflappable. A foul ball careening your way while you’re chatting on the phone? No problem.
We think he’s talking to someone who is watching the game on TV – notice how he holds the ball up to the camera?
We can imaging him saying, “No, keep going. I’m listening – I just had to catch a foul ball.”
We haven’t visited Cooperstown in a few years, but we’ve been following this blog recently, and it reminds us of how much we love this place.
We love perusing the exhibits and displays in the National Baseball Hall of Fame, and we are especially fascinated by all of the old gloves used by the great players of the past.
It’s amazing what these guys did with the gear they had back then. Baseball equipment sure has come a long way!
We don’t think this is what our LL coach meant when he told us to keep ourÂ eyes on the ball.
Talk about a casual catch….this Phillies Fan with food in hand makes it look easy!
Hurrying down the street yesterday, a pair of sneakers caught our eye.
We couldn’t help but notice the look of supple glove leather – these shoes gave us sneaker-envy.
The shoe was highlighted onÂ Sneaker News a while back.
We’re all about baseball gloves around here, but these glove-inspired kicks are so cool we had to share. We like the homage to Bo Jackson, too.
While most people were enjoying the World Series, we were glued to our TV with Tivo in hand so we could check on the gloves all the players were wearing. All so that we could serve you – our fans, with this 2009 World Series Glove Guide.
Enjoy, and Congratulations to the Yankees!
Earlier, I if you still bring your glove to the game. I admitted that I don’t usually bring it anymore. But I’m probably not the only one sitting there with my baseball cap, ready to improvise should a foul ball finally make it my way. Of course, that doesn’t mean I’m as prepared as this fan, who may not have impressed his date when he bought the pizza, but he wowed the crowd with what he did with the box.
