I did single A with you. I did double A. I sat through over force and slumps and benchings. There’s almost a year of our marriage MIA for all of the road trips and I have never complained. Not once.

I recap every game, every moment of your life, every night. And it’s the highlight of my day. I raise your sons when you’re gone. I keep your home while you’re away, and I’m ready to uproot our lives if another old man decides on a whim he wants you more than the one who currently pays you.

So perhaps you will allow me one single moment of disappointment upon learning our family vacation was just ruined with a phone call.
