Getting back into the swing of things with an easy one – a Q&A session devised by the good folks over at Dinged Corners. There are two rounds. My answers are mushed together, because that’s kind of how I end up doing things.
1-If I didn’t collect baseball cards, I’d collect…
Hmmmm, tough one. I am the family packrat, so I collect all kinds of weird things. I have a fledgling collection of WWII memorabilia (medals, dog tags, etc) from my grandfathers and a cousin who served, so I think that would become my focus.
2-My baseball heroes include one you probably wouldn’t know from my blog or comments, and that person is…..
I suppose I can’t really say Josh Hamilton here. So, I’ll go with Joe Carter. His home run in the World Series for the Jays was epic.
3-Every New Years I resolve to __________ my collection.
I don’t really make any resolutions about my collection. I try to be as easy going as possible with them.
4-If I could spend a day with one person from baseball history, it would be…..
Jackie Robinson. I’d like to meet someone who made a difference.
5-What is your favorite kind of dog?
Any mutt will do. Our dog at home is a Norwegian Elk Hound / Border Collie cross, so I’ll go with that. He’s really dumb, but I still love him. His name is Spike. I’d post a picture, but he is terrified of cameras.
