Holy High Five

It's difficult for me to actually cheer Manny, but (pardon the play on words) man-oh-man, that catch-high five with a fan over the wall-hit the cut-off man-double up the guy off first was both amazing and hilarious.

Here's the summary from an summary:

With runners at first and second and one out, Kevin Millar hit a drive to left. Ramirez made an over-the-shoulder grab on the warning track, reached over the seven-foot wall to slap a Boston fan with a high-five and then turned and threw the ball to Dustin Pedroia. The relay from Pedroia to Kevin Youkilis doubled up Aubrey Huff to complete the 7-4-3 double play.

I've instructed my sons to "play hard, play fair and have fun" when playing sports. It's sort of become our mantra. Manny might not always play hard, but he's always having fun and that's part of the pro game that seems to be missing. {Witness the hullabaloo the end of last week about Joba and the fist pumping.}
