I don’t live in Detroit.
This is a problem. Due to the fact that i live 2.5 hours away (2 hours when I am driving….) I usually have to limit going to games about once a month. Which, i believe to be sinful. If baseball was around when Jesus walked the Earth, I’m sure he would’ve mentioned that once or twice. Told Paul to write about baseball, tell people going to games only once a month is not right. I think Jesus likes baseball……. let’s bring back my point…
My point is: Friday is my game for July. For the past 3 season, since 2006, I have counted every 5 days on my calender in hopes of seeing Justin Verlander start a game. This has failed miserably. I have seen Galarraga pitch 5 times in less than a year.
But, Friday, Oh sweet wonderful Friday, I will FINALLY see Justin Brooks Verlander pitch.
Then all I have left to hope for is meeting the man properly. No more of this leaving our autograph line 5 minutes early and giving me sass, No more telling me he needs to work out, NO MORE Dramatically reaching out towards me… NONE OF IT!
Because, It is my goal in life to have a picture with Justin Verlander that does NOT look like this:
Curse you, Flash!
