#106 – Dad And George

Photo taken: May 26, 2010

Every year for the last decade or so of his life, me and my Dad would always make a two-day trip across the state to Kansas City to watch a couple ballgames…. this despite us having our very own Major League team at home.  It was something we both looked forward to, and which I’d start planning long before the season even started.  He had me take his picture in front of the statue of the Kansas City Royals greatest player ever, George Brett (Who literally inspired the Lorde song “Royals”), with a nice view of Kauffman Stadium’s famous outfield fountains in the background.  A framed copy of this photo sat on the TV stand at my parents house years, and I think is still up there.  It will always be one of my sentimental favorites…
