Hello everyone! I hope this letter finds you well as always. In the last week I have experienced a couple of important dates in history. It’s pretty amazing that I get to play baseball for a living. There are so many people that work so hard for their paycheck. And while I consider my job to be very difficult and frustrating, I can always be reminded that I play a sport for a living. I know I have worked very hard to get to where I am today and I have to pinch myself to make sure it’s actually real.
The most recent event that happened other than playing a baseball game would be the election of President Barack Obama. We live in a pretty amazing country and we have come a long way in a short period of time. While I might not agree with everything that the President elect says and does in the future, I do hope that he can continue leading this country in the right direction. It is my sincere hope that President Obama will guide this great nation forward through the many perils we have in front of us.
The second big event was of course Halloween. Apparently Halloween is a big deal out here in Arizona. So, I of course dressed up like the rest of the population. I hope everyone has seen some episodes of Saturday Night Live. I decided to dress up as Patrick Swayze in the Chippendales skit with Chris Farley. That’s right. If you were looking for a guy in skin tight pants (basically spandex), all you would have to do is find me. On the top shelf was a button down polo with the sleeves cut off. And of course I cut the cuffs off and wore them around my wrist. All you have to do is type in Chris Farley Chippendales into youtube and you will get the exact replica of my outfit. My buddies and I decided to go to a block party in Scottsdale put on by Steve Levine. Steve did an excellent job with the party and I had a blast. Overall this was an exciting week and I look forward to writing you again next week.
