But once in the restaurant the boy pointed out Ben McDonald. I wouldn't have been able to recognize him myself, but the boy has trained me enough that the name did mean something to me. In case you haven't been trained, Ben McDonald is a former LSU pitcher who led them to 2 College World Series titles, was the number 1 MLB draft pick in 1989, and went on to play for the Baltimore Orioles and Milwaukee Brewers. We wound up sitting at a table next to him as his family and as the were leaving I worked up the courage to ask for a picture.
Happy Valentine's Day everyone! Would you prefer to know exactly what you're getting or have more of a surprise? And do you have any qualms about exchanging Valentine's presents even if it's not actually Valentine's yet?
