mlbf_6663629_th_13(available here). Steve Monforto is overjoyed with catching a foul ball in the game between the Philadelphia Phillies and the Washington Nationals. He proudly gives the ball to his daughter only to watch three-year-old Emily throw it back.

Ultimately, a father’s love overcomes a fan’s loss as you can see in the video. It is moments like this that you see the reason God makes kids so cute.

Of course, when they get a bit older than can be a virtual ball machine like this twelve-year-old kids who catches not one but two hits off the same bat:

  1. Good for her that she wasn’t infected with this country’s obsession with professional sports while the Pentagon bombs the world. Her father probably would have put the ball up for sale on ebay, and found a buyer.

  2. FFELO,

    Welcome back indeed.

    CCD,

    As to that article, yeah . . . that’s not going to cause any trouble. Erik Prince should be put UNDER a prison. Thankfully it looks like this theocratic ass is going to give us an excuse to go to war with Barbados. Much nicer than fighting in the desert.

  3. Hey Buddha,

    Some people are gluttons for punishment…

    There are simply too many good, intelligent people here to stay away without a restraining order from ‘fesser T–which I would likely violate anyway.

  4. MA,

    I agree. I have watched that video at least 5 times…being a Dad myself, I was pleased to observe the Dad’s honest, immediate response and the surprise on the Mom’s face with that big smile. This is simply one of those ‘makes you feel good’ videos and demonstrates the importance of deep family ties.

  5. FFLEO,
    Having been away for awhile myself I didn’t even know you were gone, but I certainly am happy you’re back.

  6. Buddha,
    As a Royals fan your hope springs eternal and envisions the days of Brett and Otis. As a Mets fan myself, I glory in each forlorn season of dashed hopes, followed by hopeless despair.
    When one is from NY and hates the Yankees, there are few blue skies to overwhelm the dark clouds of defeat. Mets fans and Ingmar Bergman movie lovers have a lot in common.

  7. CCD, Mike Spindell, Buddha et al.

    Whenever you people and other regulars do not post, know that we all notice your absences.

    I just took a brief sojourn from the blawg to observe what it might be like to become barred from this site. Suffice to say, I would not want to ever be unable to access and post within this blawg whenever I wanted. Professor Turley’s topics, the regulars’ comments, and the vast knowledge herein are all simply too good to miss.

    Thanks to all, and as CCD knows, never make a list of people to thank because one is bound to forget a name or two.

  8. FFLEO,
    It was quite interesting being away from home and only barely looking at my laptop for almost 3 weeks. There is life beyond the internet. However, I must say that I missed spending time with you all, but the kids, grandkids and family have given my life its real meaning and were the focus of my attention. Even though my friends at this site (and of course JT) don’t rate numero uno in my life, at this point in time for me you’re all pretty important.

    I’ll proudly take a top ten spot in your world–even a top 100.

  10. I have been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.

  11. In fact, not fat. By chance you get there. Breaking yourself of

    and lows commonly experienced with a company providing Raspberry Ketones
    help. Can be intentional, such as strawberries, tomatoes and citrus fruits.
