Our 60 Seconds of Fame

Jamie got tickets for our family to go to the Astros game this evening. Elise loves to go to any sporting event (after all, she is a coach's daughter), so we were excited for the night out at the ballpark. It ended up being even more exciting than we originally planned! In the 5th inning, Jamie caught a foul ball! He forgot to bring his glove, so he caught the ball with his baseball cap. It was quite impressive! Within minutes of his big catch, we received a text message from his cousin who reported to us that he saw all 3 of us on TV! They showed Jamie making the catch, and apparently got Elise and I in the shot as well. I wish we had DVR'd the game, but I believe it will be replayed later tonight and we can record it then. Elise thought it was very neat that she got to hold the baseball.

Thank you, Thank you.... I would like to take this opporunity to thank the academy for nominating me for such a prestigous honor... I would like to thank my daughter for clutching my leg and increasing the difficulty of the catch.... Last, but certainly not least, I would like to thank my wife for standing by me in such a tense moment (seen shaking her head in video)... Heart you baby!
