I meant to post this yesterday and forgot (I know, I'm a terrible person). I wanted to wish a VERY HAPPY (late) 40th BIRTHDAY to my second baseball crush of all time, Chipper Jones of the Atlanta Braves. He is retiring after this year, it's hard to believe he's been playing 20 years! The first major league baseball game I saw in person was between the Atlanta Braves and Houston Astros in 1995. Chipper was nice enough to talk to me from the dugout (I had moved to seats behind the dugout during the game). Well, the entire conversation went like this:
17 year old Rachel: Hi Chipper.
23 year old Chipper: Hi hun.
**17 year old Rachel faints**
Yeah, I know, I'm a mess! :) Anyways, happy late birthday Chipper (I know he will be so upset I'm a day late!) ;)
