I was at a Little League meeting tonight. And after them we sit around we have a-coldda-one while chewing the fat, and poke.
The VP of the league was in SoCal this past weekend to see his daughters college graduation ceremony. He was talking about his trip and explaining about the new extra baggage fees the airlines charge now. Then he got to talking about the game he got to see at the Big A on Sunday vs. the Dodgers. See any fights I asked, "not too bad" he replied. Then he began his story.
He was at the game with his family, including his 7 year old granddaughter. He didn't bring all that much to SoCal, and the triple digit weather was making it hard for him to decide on what to wear to the game. He ended up choosing a tanktop, and a UH #15 jersey over it.
While walking to the game his granddaughter, and wife, were teasing him about his fashion sense at the ballpark that day. The granddaughter says "Look PaPa. Everyone is wearing Blue or Red, and PaPa is wearing Green. What are you thinking PaPa, have you no sense."
This is going on for the length of the walk. She was just giving it to him, then. A man comes walking by yelling " Colt Brennan #15 University of Hawaii. He's from around here." My friend then smiles at the granddaughter. Then the man goes " How many you got here? One, two, three, four. There's four of you, so here's four tickets. You need tickets, take them."
My friend goes "Great. Now I don't have buy tickets, and can save money."
Then the granddaughter asks " What are you going to do now PaPa?"
"Buy more beer with the money I saved."
He knows that I'm an Angel fan, and asked me to thank you guys for the Aloha.
