Grace in Small Things 152:365

1. familiarity.

2. making my friends laugh.

3. speaking of laughter. while watching the Sox-Nationals game, they did a Famous Presidents race. people dressed in costumes of George Washington, Abe Lincoln & i don't even know who else, with these huge heads, which made me laugh til the laughter was silent & there were tears streaming down my face.

4. and speaking of the Sox-Nationals game. two thumbs up for the Nationals announcers. i completely enjoyed their broadcast of the game. entertaining. well-called. and they aren't *so* "homer-ish" (i do expect the home announcers to root for their team but not to the exclusion of acknowledging a great effort by the visiting teams) that they can't praise the opponent for a great play.

5. *and* speaking of great plays. i am loving Nick Green and not just because he isn't Julio Lugo. it's been fantastic to watch him emerge as a short stop & blossom under the opportunity to play every day. the more experience he gets by starting every day, the more times i catch him making plays that drop my jaw. like last night's diving catch, tag of the runner, tumble-spin, and bullet to Youk for the double play.

So, how do you feel about the White Sox announcers? I love it when they say, "You can put it on the board................YES! "

Thank you for reminding me to find things to be grateful for.

Dawn, you didn't think Rob Dibble was completely hating on the Red Sox? His disdain over Papi hitting that home run was palpable, at least to me.

K: Anytime! ;-)

Fidgeting Gidget: Hawk kind of reminds me a little of John Madden. Sometimes I think he just talks & doesn't actually listen to himself. ;-)

Georgie: It's a good habit to get into! =)

Ted: You think so? I haven't heard anything but respect & admiration both nights. I think they've been very fair & offered quite a bit of praise. I don't expect them to root for the Sox though. If I were them I wouldn't be thrilled with that homer either. ;-)
