You can't wipe this smile off my face, no siree Bob! Cuz we live in the greatest nation in the history of smiles and bunnies and that makes everyone a winner in my book! Where did I get this attitude from? Happy Bob Geren, that's who, silly! A little bird told me that the A's have been going through some frowny frump-frumps lately, but that doesn't keep Bobby (or 'Gare' as I call him) from his Bob Schuller/Norman Vincent Peale happity-joy-joys! No, way, Jose! See: here's what he told our valiant warriors after last night's effort:
"We're definitely looking up, fighting an upward battle right now, there's no doubt," manager Bob Geren said. "We had a nice talk today with the team, and everybody's really trying to push forward and climb out of it collectively. Some good signs tonight."
If you read the rest of the story , you'll see that Gare's message is 'Stay Positive, Fellas!!!!' which I think is okie-dokie! Thank goodness that our lovely community of baseball fans approved of Gare's managerial style during the month of April, 'cuz I didn't like that frowny Ken Macha, not one bit!
I also have an inspiring story, and I think it might bring a collective smile to that AN frown! I was playing Pinch Hitter the other day, and I wasn't doing so well at first. But then I prayed, put on the soundtrack to 'Annie,' switched my frown to an ear-to-ear grin, and in my last three pitches ended up hitting several super 8,000 pointers out of the sandlot (if you aren't familiar with this game, you should definitely check it out!! No link, though; it's a little addicting!!!) Then I realized: my game of Pinch Hitter is just like the A's: we might start off with some not so smiley times, but we can stil pull off a late-season streak, just like I did!
Plus: Happy Birthday to me!!!
