On my way out of the gym this morning, the construction guys asked how old Basher was.

Me: “Seven weeks!”
Guy #1: “Is he working out yet?”
Me: “Nah…I’ll give him a few more weeks.”
Guy #2: “Never mind working out – start him with baseball. The Sox could use some help!”
Me: “With our genes, I’m guessing he’ll be the next Bill Gates, not the next…uhm…does Manny Ramirez still play for the Sox?”
Guys: silence and cold, cold stares.
