Boys and Baseball
Baseball is not a hugely popular sport in Canada. As you might guess, hockey is THE sport here! LOL But we have in our home an American boy who loves baseball, and the World Series is playing this week. So Samuel has invited 5 of his Canadian friends to watch game 3 of the World Series tonight. Of course, we're pulling for the Astros (due to the absence of the Rangers in the World Series!). One of the boys, when Samuel called him, said, "But there's a hockey game on tonight!" To which Samuel replied, "It's just a little one." Well, to a Canadian, I don't think there is such a thing as a little hockey game, but Phil said he'd come anyway. We'll have pizza and everybody can pile up in the living room to watch the game. Beth and I are thinking of a getaway this evening; seven boys and baseball is a bit much for us girls!
