Really, really enjoyed watching the game with my longtime friend Mark Emmert.
I embrace the fact that virtually nobody else in the Midwest roots for Dem Bums.
I have some non-conformist DNA running through my veins (probably my Irish blood). Always have.
So it gives me a great sense of pride to go against the grain and live and die with the Boys in Blue.
It’s me against the world, being a Dodgers fan in a Cubs-Twins-Cardinals state.
Check that — it’s me and Jill and Maisa and Hub against the world. 😀⚾️👍
It was a lot of fun being part of a huge crowd for Drake’s women’s basketball victory over Northern Iowa on Friday night.
Special thanks to the Rauen family for joining us, to Mike B. for the tickets, and to the Des Moines police officer for taking this photo.
Added bonus was seeing Western Dubuque grads Megan Maahs and Rose Simon-Ressler play for UNI.
Maahs (Wattuse’s daughter) is just a freshman and plays at a high level. She’s gonna be a star in the Missouri Valley.
These philosophies are the pillars of my life…
1. See the good in people
2. Focus on the positives in life
3. Tomorrow’s a new day
4. There’s always something to look forward to
5. Life’s too short, so let’s be happy
