Baseball, Hot Dogs, Apple Pie, & Chevrolet

Yep.  We in the Hanna household are about as American as they come.  We root for the Cardinals.  We love what I refer to as The Babysitter's Meal - hot dogs and macaroni & cheese - every once in a while.  Nathan chose apple pie in lieu of cake for his birthday last year.  AND we both drive Chevrolets.  We're pretty average folks, and I'm okay with that.

About baseball...

Before I met Nathan, I didn't have a favorite team.  However, it didn't take long for his love of the Cardinals to rub off on me.  The year we met was the same year that Mark McGuire and Sammy Sosa competed in "The Great Race of 1998".  Before Garrett was born, when Sunday afternoon naps were practically guaranteed, the voices of Joe Buck, Rick Horton, Al Hrabosky, Dan McLaughlin, and Mike Shannon would lull me to sleep.  (That doesn't make me sound like much of a fan, does it?!)  Maybe what I love most about baseball is the time spent with my husband doing what he loves.  To me, that's a good enough reason to keep trying to correctly answer many variations of his question: "Now.  If Carpenter only allows 2 runs in 5 innings, what's his ERA?" 

OKAY.  I confess.  All this talk about baseball is really just my attempt at a clever introduction of this video of the youngest Hanna cheering for his favorite team.  Or for Solo.  Or for pulling himself up.  Or for anything at all.  Enjoy!
