Lamont and Dude Remember Baseball

“Dude, did you ever play baseball?”

“Naw. I’m an individual sports kind of guy. Surfing.”

“Your parents never made you play Little League?”

“Yeah, but I hated it.”

“I love baseball. Back in the day, I was good. I coulda’ been a contender.”

“I have a hard time seeing you out there on the mound or whatever. What position did you play?”

“Centerfield. I could catch anything.”

“I know that. Remember that long course of mercury treatments? Did it end up working?”

“No, actually. I ended up dying.”

“High price to pay for a moment’s pleasure, Lamont. You should’ve worn a glove.”

Lamont and Dude are characters I came up with a couple of years ago. They remember most — if not all — of their previous incarnations which gives them a different perspective on life, the universe and everything.

As for the writer of this blog, Yay Cubbies! It’s about time. And baseball? I wanted to grow up to be Willie Mays ❤

  1. I grew up listening to the radio with my older brothers and, under their tutelage, thinking Bob Feller was the best pitcher the world had ever seen. So I guess that tells you how I felt about the outcome of this year’s World Series.
