One And Done
Let me offer a special "Thank You" to the thousands of listeners who came out yesterday to 620WTMJ Day at Miller Park. We all enjoyed great weather and saw a tremendous Brewers victory.
On a personal note, I (together with my colleagues Gene Mueller and John Mercure) got to toss out the first pitch. It was a lot of fun - and a little nerve wracking. I'm glad to say that all three of us put our tosses right on target.
What were the odds of that happening?
In the immediate aftermath of the pitch, I was thinking "when can I do it again"?
Upon reflection though, I think it's best not to tempt fate. In other words, I've decided to hang up my glove and quit while I'm ahead. So if you were at Miller Park last night, thanks for witnessing my first (and last) brush with athletic immortality (or something).
Thanks also to my various friends and family members who insisted I practice before taking the field and devoted time to helping me do so (especially my nephew Alex). I also appreciated the very vocal cheering section (complete with signs) that showed up last night to root me on ( that's you Carly, Abbey, Samantha and Rory).
And thanks to the Brewers and my friend Carl Moll for making it all possible.
Time to cross another one off the bucket list.
