~ Sean & Gannon ~


A couple of weeks ago there was no umpire for Gannon’s baseball game and it got pretty ugly as the other team’s coach was rather partial. So, when there was no ump for Saturday’s game it was suggested I do it, so I did. They haven’t won a game yet this season but this one they lost due to a ‘bad ump’, according to Gannon.

There were a few close base running plays that I stick by my call. The coach’s kid was called out trying to stretch a single to a double.  The coach agreed with me, kid didn’t.  I did have one pitch that I missed the call, but the beauty there, is I was able to make up for it on a subsequent pitch.


So, here we are just in time for Father’s day with a father/son project.  For last year’s burger month, we went upscale with the Yowza! Burger, a very complex creation.  This year, Gannon and I made this Turtle Burger.  It was fairly simple.
