Above and beyond

Tati came to visit me in my room yesterday so I took the opportunity to start brainwashing her into liking baseball. She already plays with my bobbleheads all the time (her favourite is Matt Cain, suck it Zito and Brian Wilson) and I tried to explain the game to her as it went along. I sold Lincecum pretty hard, haha, but I think she does actually like him.

(This morning)
ME: Tati, who threw the ball yesterday?
TATI: Timmy!

I'm going to have to make use of her to run the bases again next year before she gets too big. And get free stuff for kids.

Man, that was such an amazing game. He started the first inning overthrowing like crazy, but he calmed down and he was so incredibly good. Like, I love that he's able to overcome his struggles within a game. It's just in his mental make up. And I actually started getting weepy when he was left in for the 9th. Typically it's easier to get the complete game when you induce a lot of ground outs and fly outs, but 14 strikeouts?

I was bursting with love and pride. ♥

(LOL KNBR, they're talking about the Braves striking out in BP)

The guys better score some runs for Matty. He's still the starting pitcher I root for the most on the Giants. :) And Tati's favourite, hehe. I paused the game last night when they had the camera on the dugout and put my bobblehead next to his face and she smiled.
