Saturday most of the team got together at the Nickelson’s place for some bar-b-que and a little horse play, as usual. It was a great time as it always is with the Dawgs and their folks. Huge thanks to the Nickelson’s for hosting – the kids had a great time and so did I. You’ll find a few pictures in the usual spot.
Rick Nickelson was also kind enough to jot down a list of things heard in the stands during a ball game. They’re too good to pass up, so there they are.
Not your pitch.
It only takes one.
Hit it up the middle.
Ducks on the pond.
Did it hit you? No. Did it hit you? No. It did hit you, didn’t it? Y es, I believe it did.
Now you know what it looks like.
Way to get a piece of it.
Time for the double knuckle curve.

I wish we had those fancy metal bats when I was a kid.
Pass the Krispy Kremes.
When I was a kid, we used to…
Just play the game.
It’s not over until it’s over.
Just rub some dirt on it, you’ll be fine.
Don’t try to kill it, just a base hit, just make contact.
He’s going… not going… going…
If we win both games, fried chicken for everybody.
A walk is as good as a hit.
Don’t hate the player, hate the game.
Half of baseball is fifty percent mental.
There’s no crying in baseball.
That new $300 Stealth bat was really worth it.
But mom, at least we didn’t get caught cursing on ESPN.
You can do it.
You can’t play baseball unless you come to the park.
Get ’em next time.
Umpiring is really hard, give the guy a break.
Rock and fire baby.
The Dawgs are off the porch and stretching the chain.
You can see Rock City from seven states.
Nevada is a great town for the state tournament.
When Larry throws his hat, it is on.
