The Detroit Tigers have a Traveling Caravan visiting different places to promote their event on Saturday and to answer questions. So we got to listen to the coach, owner, a couple of players and the sports announcers answer questions concerning the upcoming season, trades, etc. I was pretty impressed that I was able to stay awake for the whole thing. The only thing more boring than a baseball game is listening to people talk about it. They were nice though and took time to come and see us. For that I am appreciative. In the photo are the panel of folks that came out. (Sorry about the photo - camera phone.)
After the Tigers left our boss took the opportunity to present awards. I was presented with a step increase. (Small raise for the non-government employees) It was nice to be recognized for the work I do.
It was a nice ego boost and then I went home for the great equalizer – the kids. I had quite the time trying to explain to Jason that two cursive paragraphs were not considered “excessive” homework. He did not believe me.
