I don’t care if it’s Spring Training, regular season, or Tecmo Baseball: I see the score Red Sox 1, Yankees 0, and I do the happy dance.
And if your day needed a little dose of Bobby Valentine heroics, look no further.
He built a deck, too
This was an offseason project, adding a deck to his home, 12 feet off the ground, sturdy enough to hold a hot tub. Valentine bought books on building and designing decks. He bought a video tape, too. He bought tools and lumber, and then he built a deck.
Here’s an important footnote: Somewhere along the way, a guy told Valentine only a professional could build a deck that would hold a hot tub.
That warning only doubled the challenge for Bobby V, and so he built himself a deck.
“They said it couldn’t be done,” Valentine said. “I used a three-four-five pythagorean theory to square that corner. I still remember that. I couldn’t get that sucker square.”
