THE BOYS OF SPRING


Thus far, I have made it to three University of Louisville baseball games this year. Today, my brother Jonathan and I were on hand to see the Cards dispatch highly-ranked St. John's, 10-3. It was an unbelievably glorious day. Going to Jim Patterson Stadium has become a splendid spring pastime for me. Today's seventy degree weather and brilliant sunshine made the experience all the better. I truly love to feel the sun warming my skin as I watch the Cards zipping the ball around the infield with well-honed precision.

I am enjoying the Cards all the more this year because of Drew Haynes. Drew is the starting center fielder for Louisville. I have literally watched Drew play baseball since he was four years old, when he and Brendan were T-ballers together at the YMCA in Jeffersonville. Over the years, Drew and Brendan played on many New Albany Township all-star teams together. They have been friends for many years. I know that Drew is not only a fine athlete, but a great young man as well. His parents, Richard and Paula Haynes, are wonderful people. I shared some warm, reflective moments with them at yesterday's 'Ville game.

Today, in addition to covering center field like the dew, Drew had two hits and drove in a key RBI against St. John's. It is fantastic to see him excelling on the collegiate stage. I also love being able to chat with Brendan about Drew's success. I know that Brendan enjoys reading about Drew on-line, and hearing about his play from afar at his dorm room at Annapolis.

I can tell you this: I will continue to be at Jim Patterson Stadium to support Drew and the Cards whenever possible. I hope to see you, dear CoffeeSpoons reader, at the ol' ball park soon.

Hi Matthew - completely off topic but I have occasionally wondered about your blog handle 'Coffeespoons' then a penny dropped. Is it a line from T.S Eliot's 'Love song of J. Alfred Prufrock' - 'I have measured out my life with coffee spoons'?

Or am I completely barking up the wrong tree?

Just asking.

Best wishes.

Hi Andrew--Very good! You are absolutely correct. If I knew how to do it, I would provide a link here to my very first post on this blog, in which I explained that "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" is my favorite poem. I love the line about having measured out my life with coffee spoons. It is oh-so-true.

Thanks for asking. I hope that all is well with you.

My dear Meatbe and White Rabbit....

Not being nearly as schooled as the two of you,
I would not presume to interject myself into your
conversations. However,
I would like to be the mouse in the corner or the
fly on the wall when you
meet, as I feel certain that one day you will
