Hey, boys of summer! I think that most of you know that I am the ultimate Boston Red Sox fan, right? Can you believe that number 8 has turned 80 this year? The Impossible Dream Team of 1967. Carl Yazstremski, the man they call YAZ! Carl produced 3400+ Hits, 452 Homers, and 1,844 RBI’s in his 13,900+ plate appearances. Perhaps the most iconic Red Sox player ever, on par with the great Splendid Splinter himself, Ted Williams.
Why do I bring this up? Well, for one, as a huge Red Sox fan, I love celebrating an iconic Red Sox player. And to be honest, any iconic baseball player. And secondly, the boys of 1967 are now in their late 70’s or 80’s.
So my message is this…I think that we should always remember to celebrate our days and get the most out of them. Because those warm summer days and nights always turn to the coolness of autumn. We should enjoy and embrace every moment of every season that we have.
While the 2019 Boston Red Sox might not make the play-offs, I am going to celebrate the rising stars alongside the old heroes playing this wonderful game of summer. And I will be looking forward to a new season as the cold of winter begins to melt into spring. Let’s choose to celebrate every moment that we have. Whether it’s spring, summer, fall or winter, they are all special in their own way. As long as we can learn to embrace what the world gives us, I think that we can always be happy. Taking what life gives us and making the very best of it. Enjoy your friends, enjoy your family, live your life.
Joy & Love,
Goddess Mandy 🙂 XO
Have you had a chance to watch Yaz’s nephew play in San Francisco? He’s pretty good.
Oh wow! No, I haven’t had the opportunity, Dennis. I LOVE that you asked me about this, though! Thanks for sharing and asking about him. 🙂
Sorry, he’s Carl’s grandson, not nephew. Mike Yastrzemski. Plays for the Giants.
Thanks for sending this too, Dennis. John thought that it was Carl’s grandson and now it’s confirmed. I want to be on the lookout for him! 🙂
Thanks for the inspiring insight to pay tribute to those who have inspired our past and make the most of the present.
Thanks for accompanying me and enjoying my recent journey of adventure and introspection.
You always say what i need to hear. Thank You.
Ohhhh kneel…I love how you said that, thank YOU! And being with you on your journey of adventure and introspection was not only a joy but it was a privilege AND an inspiration to Me!!! 🙂
So true Yaz will always be one
Of the all time greats to play
The game and a true competitor that played the game the way it should be played
I couldn’t agree with you more, Lexi…he was all of that in his baseball days! You just have to respect someone that always plays the game the right way! 🙂
