Wow, do we ever love BASEBALL!

David Price 1st round draft pick from Vanderbilt!!

Anyone who knows us knows how much we LOVE baseball.

Last night was so much fun. We watched game 7 of the playoffs for the World Series and what a game it was. It was a close game the whole time. Then it got down to the 8th inning and bases loaded for Boston (oh crap , not good) and Me, Matthew and Jaden were all yelling at the TV for Tampa Bay to put in our hometown hero David Price. They kept talking about him, and we felt like they would. Well as always they go to a commercial and we are sitting there waiting, and waiting. Then they come back to the game and sure enough, #14 David Price from Murfreesboro, TN is on the mound. People, this is huge for him. He has just been called up from the AAA division of that team and is now fixing to pitch in a must win to get to the "BIG DANCE". Matthew came downstairs so nervous you would have thought he was standing out there( I wish). It was so fun.
Another fun note is that I work with his brother. He is a real estate agent and his office is 2 doors over from mine. It is so much fun to watch all this happen.

Here is the rest of the story................... Go Tampa Bay!

Tampa Bay Rays pitcher David Price reacts after defeating the Boston Red Sox 3-1 to win the American League baseball championship series in Game 7 in St. Petersburg, Fla., Sunday, Oct. 19. When it was over, players and coaches streamed out of the dugout and mobbed Price, eventually falling to the ground in a cluster that continued to grow when others began leaping on the pile." As a kid I think everybody pictures this night," he said. "Usually it's Game 7 of the World Series but I'll take Game 7 of the ALCS.""I wanted the ball," Price said.
"I think everybody down there in the 'pen wanted the ball tonight."
