Five Years Ago Today, Three Things Happened
Pudge Rodriguez tagged out San Francisco's J. T. Snow at the plate to clinch the 2003 Division Series for the Marlins.
Trot Nixon hit an 11th inning walk off home run to win game 3 of the Division Series for the Red Sox.
The beautiful and amazing Lisa agreed to marry me.
5 years later and Pudge and Trot have long since left their 2003 teams... but Lisa is still with me.
And she revealed to my surprise during the ceremony that there was a home plate in front of the Justice of the Peace and she pulled out a glove and ball. In front of all of our friends and relatives she threw me a pitch.
Appropriately it was a perfect strike.
