Although it was short lived, my first taste of playoff baseball has left me hungry for more and as I watch the Giants take a 3-1 lead in the world series one might ponder what could have been. But for me the experience is one I will never forget and one i’m sure will be repeated in braves country next year ( hopefully a month longer )
Enough of that.
After a week of hugs and goodbyes my fiance and I ( yes fiance ) made the short 24 hour trek from Atlanta to Melbourne Australia where i was met with a flurry of media and fan fair LMAO. To be honest nobody even knows who I am down here, so my arrival was very quiet I was however, met by a customs officer who took a liking to my chewing tobacco. You see skoal is not something that is readily available in the land down under so as you can imagine a three month supply was sure to catch the attention of the x-ray machine, so what followed was a 30 min negotiation that involved me trying to prove that I am a Major League Baseball player and not a smoke shop owner trying to bring in new products. Great start to my homecoming!!!!
Two people who I know were happy I was home were my beautiful girls Montana and Matisse. I am sure every parent knows, nothing compares to the excitement you feel when you know you are about to see your kids for the first time in a while. I am also sure not a lot of parents spent as much time away from there kids as me. Living on seperate ends of the world makes visiting a little tough. So imagine the joy I feel knowing I get to spent 3 months just a few miles away.
Offseason update number 1 guys stay tuned for more riveting info to follow.
