OK, so it's not the big leagues, but my oldest, Will, is pitching in the USSSA AAA World Series this week in Dallas. I'm excited, nervous, and proud all at the same time.
He is 6' tall, has size 15 feet, and an 80-mph fastball, and he's a lefty. On top of that, he's only 14 years old. If that arm holds out, he might be a better investment than my 401K (especially with Obamanomics around).
Of course, his twin brother, Brice, who scored in the mid 20s on the ACT test as a 7th grader, might do even better (you remember the old joke about Michael Jordan and Bill Gates, right?).
OK, I'll quit braggin' on my kids.
