Its that time of year....

The pennant race is in full swing!

I read this today at Fox Sports....

"The Red Sox don't just own baseball's best record. They have become MLB's model organization..."

The times they are a-changing.

What now, Yankees!?

And speaking of baseball....

Meet Brian Roberts, 2nd Baseman for the Baltimore Orioles.
Here's a few of the things that have made him my favorite player for the last several years...

1. He's from NC.
2. He plays on my favorite team.
3. He holds the SEC record for stolen bases (67), and has 42 SB so far this year.
4. NC Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) has this to say about him:
"Brian Roberts has the right priorities as a professional athlete. In 1999, when he was drafted by the Baltimore Orioles in the first round of the amateur draft, he postponed signing with the major-league team. Why? Because he was invited to be a Huddle Leader at an FCA Camp in Black Mountain, N.C."

Yeah, thanks for adding in that important fact, Joy. I guess I just figured a picture is worth a thousand words. So I put up two.


Thanks for finally commenting.
