I slept with a champion last night. Dave and I were in Bemidji Minnesota for the weekend where he was playing in a baseball tournament. Although the road to victory wasn’t easy his Eastman team won the championship on Sunday in fine style. Dave made a great catch that had him jumping high in the air. He had some solid hits and managed to avoid irritating the leg wound he got on Saturday diving for a ball.
Dave has been a champion baseball player many times before. In fact he is in the Manitoba Baseball Hall of Fame. But he is a champion in lots of other ways in my books. After the final game yesterday he drove all the way home from Bemidji so I could work on a writing project in the car that has a fast approaching due date. Then when we got home he made me his signature spicy Caesar cocktail and a homemade pizza for our supper. Today he’s headed off to train for a new job as a Lexus driver to earn some extra cash for our travel adventures.
I guess I sleep with a champion every night.
