Such a fine memory.

I inherited all of my athletic abilities from my father. He was a star athlete in multiple sports when he was young (football, basketball, baseball, waterskiing, track) and later in life he transitioned into playing softball for a few teams. I can remember going to watch him when I was a tiny little thing and how thrilling I found sitting on the bench in the dugout with his teammates while I watched him play. He loaned me his glove in law school when I was playing for our school team in the law school softball tournament in Virginia. This glove has made a lot of tremendous catches (including a game-winning diving catch that shattered my dad's finger and sent him to the hospital). And it's perfectly worn. He keeps it on a shelf in his library now. A reminder of his glory days, I think.
