HOW YOU LIKE THEM APPLES

I came up with an idea today because of all the questions I have received lately from parents of younger kids, especially kids that play baseball, about what types of things I did growing up. This doesn't really have anything to do with apples so I'm not sure why I put that up there as the title of the blog. I was thinking of Good Will Hunting for some reason. Very good movie by the way. Anyways, back to my idea. I'm going to let everyone send in any questions that you would like to know about things I did growing up, and I will have my parents answer them for you. They know more about what I did as a kid than I can even remember. Plus my mom always secretly wanted to be a soap opera star, so I may make her answer on my flip video just to see how bad she is in front of a camera. I guess it doesn't have to just be about things I did when I was a kid. You can really ask about anything you want. Although if you ask her to talk about the times I wet the bed, I'm not letting her answer. I'm just playing, I was never a bed wetter. I was afraid of the dark though. Anyways, I'm going to take 5-10 questions that I receive and I will ask either one of my parents to answer. I'm going to probably put up their responses on Saturday, so you have a day or two to throw up your questions. Anything goes, have fun, good luck.

  7. I wish I had some questions but I can't think of anything good, so I just suggest, in order to give Matt a hard time, just show some kiddie pictures while on camera, the ones you are most proud of and the ones that Matt wishes never would see the light of day!

  8. Dear Matt's mom,
    As a child, did Matt have a favorite stuffed animal,blanket, or action figure that he used to carry around with him? If so, what was it named and does he still travel with it today?

  9. I've had good coaches over my career. When I was younger I would just hit the way I knew how, but I've always had some help with that. How old are you?
