Why do I love the Josh Hamilton story?

Not because he’s a great baseball player.

Not because he’s an unashamed follower of Christ.

Because as he speaks, he never says he has defeated his addictions.  He has someone carry around his meal money so he doesn’t spend it on drugs.  He knows all too well the human condition, and from that perspective receives the grace that’s offered to him.  He doesn’t stand on a platform and proclaim Christ from a position of strength.  He proclaims Christ from a position of utter weakness.  Even though he’s Josh Hamilton.

Attention all Major League Scouts

My son just turned 2 last month, and it’s time that you start familiarizing yourself with Brinton Davis.

Brinton Batting

Look at the hand-eye coordination.  He’s still looking at the place that he hit the ball as he continues his follow-through on a line drive to the opposite field.  I’m telling you, the kid can hit and he can throw.  We still haven’t found a position for him in the field, but we’re working on it.

Now, I only made it to high school baseball, but this kid is going to be different.  Major Leagues, here we come.  We’ll probably have to move somewhere south so he can play year round and we’re going to have to invest lots of money into traveling teams and the best equipment, not to mention personal trainers and nutritionists.  And, yeah, he’ll never get to go camping or play other sports or spend much time with other kids.  But he’ll have friends on his teams, so that will work itself out.

At the Royals game

And he seems to have his way with the ladies, so I’d say about 2032 we’ll have a son in the Major Leagues and grandchildren to play with.  I mean, if you don’t set goals how do you ever accomplish anything?

A couple of thoughts

First off – came across this church in East Lansing, Michigan that has a homebrewing ministry. I love the fifth objective: To resume the Church’s historical role as making the finest beer in town. Honestly, I’m not 100% sure what I think of this, and I know my SBC affiliated church won’t be doing this anytime soon, but browse the referenced verses in the FAQ and in particular read the tab on “Church & Beer”. Needless to say I’m mostly in agreement, but feel free to share your thoughts be they pro or con.

Secondly, how ’bout them Royals, beating the Red Sox two out of three at Fenway. Take that, “Fever Pitch”! Make fun of the Royals in your movie, will you?
