CANO VOTES PRESENT

Filed under: — @jphoganorg @ 8:04 am

Who is the longest hitter, dad?  Now like from many of our summer, of our boys of summer - young and old,  and, "Who is Jackie Robinson?" as well?

From the younger among us now, soon, if not already: 

KNOCK!!!  KNOCK!!!

WHO IS THERE?

CANO

CANO WHO?

CANO CAN COME OUT AND PLAY.

CANO WHO?

And, in Dixie, too, maybe heard:

If Turgenev were and American his news today would be more merry.

They might be giants - the may just be a retiring pitcher, a proud dad too.

They might just be second basemen - they may still be squirts.

They may now need to be educated on legend of Jackie Robinson too, and:

KNOCK!!!  KNOCK!!!

WHO IS THERE?

CANOE

CANOE WHO?

CAN U COME OUT AND PLAY?

CANO WHO? 

AND BOTH MORE THAN JUST OF DIXIE.

And, now, though still:

But dad, who is the longest hitter?

Son, you should consider some math and look at averages, a "flash in the pan" may be "longest" and of "best player" but then it might be a conundrum from the heat of competition and spirit of the moment.  Our American past time is tricky to fathom and emote and fully respect, as it can break our hearts as much as charge our batteries.

But dad???  Who is the longest hitter?  Son yes two feet, I remember, your’s too, when even smaller, but sorry I am still too caught up with Cano? Cano? to quite remember. 

Well dad, I do want to be a second baseman or centerfielder, and it is remarkable that he now has more homeruns in first half of season than old and new Bronx Bombers pairs, combined, oh, dad have black players always played so well since the beginning of baseball?

Son, it is hard to say, on that, there may not be enough records for blacks since the days of the beginning of baseball - you will look up Jackie Robinson, though, won’t you?

Yes dad, he is in Wikipedia, isn’t he?

Yes, he is in as well for not just voting present, and for having done all the work to stay present once allowed to be present, he wasn’t a "flash in the pan" that cut corners to get there.

Dad???  What are you talking about? 

Just do your homework and chores, son, and remember to look up Jackie Robinson on more than just Wikipedia, please, please, please.

Dad, I do like your KNOCK!!!  KNOCK!!! jokes, I should have come up with them both first.

Dad, why are girls allowed to play in the ALL STAR games?

Son, where has your mother gone - would you go find her?
