(((VP))) Beautiful post and I'm sure your grampa is smiling down on you right now.
It's September 1st and I haven't paid a lick of attention to the NFL or colllege football yet this year. How fun is that?! I still like football and will follow the box scores but my heart has special spot in it for baseball. I've always been more of a baseball girl than a football girl (although if we're really getting technical, I'm a die hard figure skating fan first and foremost...thankfully their season starts in late October so there's not much overlapping for me there, LOL) and this season has been absolutely awesome for me. I was too little to remember the Big Red Machine but I certainly remember the Wire to Wire season and I plan on being in full out baseball mode for a long time this fall. Good thing Ohio State plays this week on the Reds off day so I can at least follow their first game of the year, LOL :
