Spring Training '09 Day 1

Hi Frenchy's tongue! We missed you!


More good pics from AJC.com:

Bennett's bum and sunflower seed cheek (and Blaine's firebeard!)


Kenshin's kinda cute!


Aww, Huddy. I'll miss seeing him pitch this year.


Finally...



I was in Kroger a couple of minutes ago, wearing my pink #16 shirt (Braves shirts were our team uniform in the dodgeball tournament today -- which we won!!), and a super-sweet woman around my mom's age commented on my shirt in the frozen food section. She said he was her favorite player, and that she knows him. I should have asked how she knew him, but I just echoed the sentiment that he was my favorite too. She assured me that he's a wonderful person, and said, "What you see is what you get," with a smile. I told her that was good to hear, since they're not all that way. Later, when we crossed paths again, she wished me a Happy Valentine's Day. It's always great to meet other Braves fans! :)

Someone mentioned on DOB's blog, and it kind of looks that way, that Mac might have finally gotten his mohawk that was taken away from him at the end of last season. I can kind of see it, but I'll wait until it's more obvious before I assume anything.

Awww! She might have been a friend of the family or his parents or something, but who knows? I think she summed him up pretty well, too, at least from what I've seen from him.

That's the first thing I saw when I saw the picture of Bennett, but then again, it's hard not to see, lol.

Kenshin seems to be fitting in well and Frenchy even got him to play golf with him and a few others, and told him to bring his "moolah" with him. It is me or does Kenshin look as if that belt he has on is not a the usual uniform belt or am I thinking their belts look different? Of course, when I look, they all look the same.

If someone could actually get a picture of Mac with a mohawk I would love you forever!

Megan Ashley said...

And they say the best time to get Autographs is at 8 am, so whenever it seems like

Nice Valentine's gift, Lauren! Thanks! And I'm very glad to hear that from your fellow shopper.

Very cute smile on KK there.

Yay. I'm going to be there March 18-22 and have tickets to two games, and I can't wait! I wonder if I can drag my friends away from the theme parks early enough to catch a workout...
