Cleats by Bill Hinds for June 19, 2003
Jerome: I can't hit a baseball, Grampa. Jerome's Grandfather: Be patient, Jerome, You haven't batted as much as the other boys. Jerome: I don't want to disappoint you. Jerome's Grandfather: Nonsense. Don't worry about disappointing me. Just the opposite... Remember in that last soccer match, how you stole that ball and took it all the way down field for a shot on goal? Jerome: Yeah, I almost scored! Jerome's Grandfather: If it gets more exciting than that, they're going to have to jumpstart my ticker. Jerome: Watching soccer? Jerome's Grandfather: Don't tell your Dad.
