Let's Hear It For Liebs!!!
A big CONGRATULATIONS to our nephew Andrew Liebel! The MLB Draft started today and the Liebel family got some awesome news: Andrew was picked by the Toronto Blue Jays in the 3rd Round as the 95th overall pick! GO LIEBS!!! (Obviously, we PNW Liebel's were hoping the Mariners would pick him, but what-EVER!) "We gotta play 'em one day at a time. I'm just happy to be here. Hope I can help the ballclub." "I just want to give it my best shot, and the good Lord willing, things will work out." "A good friend of mine used to say, 'This is a very simple game. You throw the ball, you catch the ball, you hit the ball. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, sometimes it rains.' Think about that for a while." (The preceding quotes were taken from an interview with Andrew James "Nuke LaLoosh" Lee-Bull Durham.) Heh heh. Congratulations Andrew ~ We are so proud of you! Much love from all of us up here in Washington!
