You know this rabbit is gonna keep the pace high and push you to get better; let’s follow his lead tmr morning in the Gloom!


7PAX laughed at the weather conditions this morning in OP.

My first Q! Room to grow, but these guys made it easy on me by getting after it.

Shout out @Sheriff who continues to lay down the law on Merkins.

@Little Finger passed and pushed me home. @Kodak was a great support getting me ready for the Q – and thanks for the coffee afterwards!

CoT included this quote from the movie Field of Dreams:

We just don’t recognize life’s most significant moments while they’re happening. Back then I thought, “well, there’ll be other days”. I didn’t realize that that was the only day.

– Dr. Archibald ‘Moonlight’ Graham (Burt Lancaster)

Here’s 2 I didn’t share…

“Getting thrown out of baseball was like having part of me amputated. I’ve heard that old men wake up and scratch itchy legs that been dust for over fifty years. That was me. I’d wake up at night with the smell of the ball park in my nose, the cool of the grass on my feet… the thrill of the grass.”

– Shoeless Joe Jackson (Ray Liotta)

“To feel the tingling in your arm as you connect with the ball. To run the bases, stretch a double into a triple, and flop face-first into third, wrap your arms around the bag. That’s my wish, Ray Kinsella. That’s my wish. And is there enough magic out there in the moonlight to make this dream come true?”

– Dr. Archibald ‘Moonlight’ Graham (Burt Lancaster)

Baseball season is almost here – even if the guys in MLB are having a bit of crisis of consciousness right now.
