Side note: I really hope that they start referring to them and Up-Up and a HEY! I mean, totes cute right? If you don't agree, you can go play in traffic.
Quit staring, honey! He's mine.
I'm a Georgia girl, so I was bred to bleed red and navy. Yes navy, not black. I remember as a kid having this picture on the bulletin board next to my bed, because I loved Javy Lopez so much. All the other girls were swooning over Hanson, I had my Javy. I am sensing a trend, apparently I have a thing for catchers?
Apparently Billy coached Javy's son for a hot second a summer or two ago. He conveniently forgot to mention that to me until after the season was over. He did also admit that Javy wasn't at every game, so I guess it's okay that he conveniently forgot to mention this tidbit of information about my childhood dream man. It saved me lots of hours spent in the sun looking like a hot mess in the humid summers to see my childhood crush.. Only to meet him and be looking like a melted freak show.
Now that I look back on it. I don't remember every really having a thing for baseball players or even athletes in general. I was always a girl that would swoon for a guy with a guitar. It was just total coincidence that I'm head over heels for a former catcher. Had 9 year old me had been able to see into the future and known I would end up dating a baseball player, and a catcher to boot, I probably would have been one proud, cocky little squirt.
