SPRAINED ANKLE – NO DEREK JETER AM I

October 5th, 2010 · No Comments · Social Commentary

When the mind says yes but the body says no!

How can you not get caught up in Playoff fever? For the Yankees, any kid who is a Yankees Fan wouldn’ t know – literally what it’s like to NOT be in the playoffs.

I was lucky and got two playoff tickets for Home Game 1 Saturday night at the Stadium. So I was all psyched to take Nodari to the schoolyard with his friend Gio to play stickball.

We agreed in advance that there would be no arguing calls, and that I wouldn’t throw “the Georgian Dance Pitch” which utterly confuses them or makes them laugh so hard that watching my spasmodic gyrations causes them to freeze like a deer caught in the headlights.

Nevertheless, I still don’t like to lose and give it my all – even against a 9 year old and an 11 year old. Nodari was coming back from an 8 run deficit when he clubbed one to past Gio who “homed” it (threw the ball to the wall from the fence” but as luck would have it the ball hit the basketball post and I tried to do a soccer style Jeter by kicking the ball to the wall to complete the play.

The result is what you see here.

This is my surgically repaired ankle that already has a pin in it.
