Before I depart for baseball adventures unknown, let me give you the happy recap of last weekend. Many of the pictures of the party were taken by Youthlarge.
It was The Buddha's 1st Birthday Party! It is a time for traditional Korean attire - at least for the baby.
Rumi and The Buddha
Charlie and The Buddha
It is a Korean custom on one's first birthday to choose your destiny in life by picking from a number of different objects. These objects include a pencil which represents academia, a dollar bill, a stethoscope, and noodles to signify a long life. In this case, a golf club was also included as a joke.
Will The Buddha be the next Michelle Wie?
The Peanut didn't like having to wear the hat either.
The harmonica playing greatly added to the singing of "Happy Birthday."
We left Jersey and headed for Clinton Hill for a barbeque at a friend of The China Latina. There was some old time music played and some great grilled meat. It was a good time. My favorite line of the night was when Ezra and I got roped into a conversation about how bad the Yankees' radio announcer John Sterling is. The dude's comback? He said, "Baseball is boring. I can't take three hours of it. I need the snappy one-liners." Dare I say, typical Yankees fan?

David Wright hit a grand slam.
Then we headed to Flushing for some Korean World Cup action.
Almost a goal.
Korea tied the game and it was an exciting finish.
Mooney loves waterfalls.
Erik loves Korean lawsuits.
After some R and R back at home, it was time for The Gate with the visiting Barry.
Summer Dan bids you adieu. Maybe there will be posts in the next two weeks, maybe not. Who can tell? Summer Dan sure can't.
