put me in coach

I've never been much of an athlete.
I'd consider wearing these sort of sporty things.

Adidas Honey Gold Heart Sneakers

"Well, beat the drum and hold the phone -
 the sun came out today!

Adidas Longline Sweat Dress

We're born again, there's new grass on the field.

Adidas Collarless Jacket

A-roundin' third, and headed for home,
it's a brown-eyed handsome man;

Snoopy Baseball Tee

Anyone can understand the way I feel.

Dark Side Baseball Top

Oh, put me in, Coach -
  I'm ready to play today;

Put me in, Coach -  I'm ready to play today;
Look at me, I can be Centerfield.

My nephew Speed Racer playing
 with his dad.

My niece Lil Bug

Well, I spent some time in the Mudville Nine,
watchin' it from the bench;

My niece EJ

You know I took some lumps
when the Mighty Casey struck out.
So Say Hey Willie, tell Ty Cobb and Joe DiMaggio;
Don't say "it ain't so", you know the time is now...

My nephew Baby JJ

Yes, I played softball.

Our team was in 2nd place.
I won best sportsmanship ribbon.
Left photo: age 8
Our team was in last place.

 Our coach said "Look Mean."
I didn't know he was joking,
 so I scowled at the camera.

 I'm still mad that I listened to him. :P

Tues. Aug 14:
I'm far too sensitive.
Sometimes I wish...
I've got a bulletproof heart.
I cry at the drop of a hat.
Right now, 
so hot it feels like it's melting into a puddle.

 Wed. Aug 15:   I snarl.

I haven't picked up my guitar in 11 days.
Today it feels like it's screaming at me from neglect.
Maybe I'll let it cry with/through my fingers.

My mom used to sing Centerfield by John Fogerty
I bet she'll deny it if you ask her though.

He's totally playing a baseball bat shaped guitar in this video.  :)

"Got a beat-up glove, a homemade bat,
and brand-new pair of shoes;
You know I think it's time to give this game a ride.
Just to hit the ball and touch 'em all -
 a moment in the sun;
 It's gone and you can tell that one goodbye!"...

  1. loving those adidas pieces.. I've always been into working out.. but not into the sporty-casual look though, for regular days... it's a hot trend right now.. I don't know if I could rock it.. but those sneakers I'm definitely digging...
    you should go play your guitar, she must be lonely :)

  2. Great song & I actually really love those shoes! :D

  3. I haven't touched the cello in 6 weeks. Maybe I'm not really into it. I am into that Snoopy shirt, though. Very cute! And Baby JJ- adorable!

  6. So sweet sneakers but of course even sweeter nieces and nephews!!!! (As you can see, I follow an order so not to forget the points I want to comment!) I loved what you wrote about being too sensitive - I also wished, sometimes, to be less sensitive, but alas, I can't help it!
    You look AMAZING when playing softball! Really so so sweet!
    Now please play your guitar a bit and I bet you and the guitar will have a lt to cacth up!

  7. your nephews look adorable, and I was just thinking that the other day when I went to a sports check that Adidas has really stepped up their game. I havent bought a pair of runners for over 5 years and recently just bought a pair from them- I'm impressed with their latest wear!!

  14. You are a good writer Teddi. I love the line from your journal about your guitar seeming to be screaming from neglect, and letting it cry through your fingers.

    I like the first outfit you posted, nice print and great colours. I could see baseball tees coming back in style someday, maybe for spring?

  15. What a toe tapping song Teddi. New nephew is really adorable. Congratulations. Hope all is well. Love the sporty look..
