TAMPA, Fla. — In the last three years, I’ve written countless words about teams making new acquisitions. But I haven’t written enough about the new acquisitions that matter most. This morning, I thought I’d change that a bit.
The photo to the right was sent to my iPhone at 7:37 a.m. from my very excited big brother Richard, who with his wife Kelly, just welcomed to the world a beautiful, healthy, daughter (not son as previously reported, and here I was thinking that a text from the proud papa would be a reliable enough source).
At last text, Mom and Dad had not yet named the little gal. (I’ll send you word when they do). But because both are sane and reasonable people, I’m sure they’ll steer clear of “Lester.” (UPDATE: They’ve since decided Mia Brooke Hinal. Nice.)
Anyway, I call dibs on buying the future LPGA champ her first set of golf clubs.
Also, just wanted to offer one piece of unsolicited advice. Make sure to give her “the talk” early, or at least before mom has a chance to get to her. Trust me on this one.
