Don't be afraid to take advice

Babe Ruth said "Don't be afraid to take advice. There's always something new to learn."

This blog is about something Molly and I learned. It's a story about our 2010 favorite first base position player...Jason Botts. And it's totally a girl thing ;)

J Botts, as we so fondly called him, plays for Buffalo this season. Somehow we've never really gotten over losing him, so when Buffalo played Syracuse we were pretty excited to see him again. Even though, (not so) technically speaking, he dumped us last year. Yeah he left us, but we moved on...Chris Marrero has done a fine job of making us forget our former love.

It seems, however, that we didn't totally get over losing him...

All he had to do was give us his brilliant smile and wave to us. Then he bought us dinner at Taco Bell! (He just happened to be the Taco Bell "K" man that night and struck out).

So we thought things were going pretty well. We forgave him, took him back, agreed to dinner and THEN he delivered the final blow - he hit a HOME RUN!! He might as well have punched us in the stomach! Suddenly we weren't very hungry anymore.

At the bottom of the ninth inning, the game was in tie. My favorite pitcher - Josh Wilkie came in to pitch. He did his job well (as he usually does!) and Buffalo did not score.

The story does end on a happy note - Syracuse triumphed and J Botts went back to Buffalo.

The moral of that story - you probably shouldn't be so quick to take someone back after they left you in the first place. Though we will always hold a special place in our heart for the 2010 season first base player. Beacause it really is a girl thing and that's how we roll ;)

That's our advice ~ The Babe would be proud ~ we learned something new!
