In anticipation….


of green grass and blue sky and yellow mustard on hot dogs.
of strikeouts and home runs and oh, those base-on-balls.
of garlic fries and lemonade and dippin’ dots.of stolen bases and home-run-robbing catches.
of popcorn, peanuts and cracker jack.

of outfield assists and home plate slides.
of infield singles and sacrifice flies.
of sparkling, crisp double-plays.

of eyes that well with tears when it finally hits – “the voice” is gone but never forgotten.

Not sure how we are going to do it without you, Dave.
But, we know that you would want us all to carry on…
with rye bread and mustard and white shoes and a love for the game that is pure and true.

Go Mariners!

Make Dave proud.
