    proud or mortified?

    I know I have often posted about my kids and have restrained myself recently.
    But, this event is just too unreal to not talk about.
    I don't know if what my daughter, Danielle, did is an achievement or insanity.
    BTW, she just was featured in a magazine article as being the Travelers biggest fan. I guess this incident proves it.

    Not for me, too long away from my shop! Well that and nothing against baseball, but well, it is a little boring to me.

    NOW......I am mortified.
    There are several non-conventional or 'alternative' newspapers in Little Rock. I do not keep up with them.
    The Rock City Times is not a newspaper at all, it is pure humor. Nothing in it is true.
    This whole story was a spoof. Dear daughter just notified us.
    Actually, I like the story better than the truth in this case. Oh, well.
    She still got some notarity out of it.

    You know I saw the tagline under the paper's name and wondered a bit about this...I got duped though!

    Actually, she comes close to reality in that story. She is at every game at that park and frequently travels to see the Travelers play in other locations. Last week she was featured in a legitimate newspaper for being the teams biggest fan. And, Daddy has to add, she doesn't date the players, she goes for the baseball. I'll post a neat pic later.

    Its great to have die-hard fans. I applaud her and the spoof was funny. It sounds like it was oddly on target for her.
