I've always wondered why they don't do something like this in hockey games. It's a lot harder to throw a ball than to drop a puck.

Thank you for avoiding the retarded dust in eyes cliche, subby

If you are going to go for my heartstrings, you might not want to cut from the pitch to crying girl without showing her realizing it is her dad.  It's not going to be at all dusty if you can't be bothered to film the good stuff.
 
2014-05-12 01:52:43 AM
That's unfortunate. She'll see her dad all the time. How often will she get the chance to meet Kevin Costner?
 
2014-05-12 01:52:55 AM
Larry Craig?
 
2014-05-12 01:56:31 AM
Was it the man who shows up at the house whenever daddy's away? The one who goes into mommy's bedroom and makes funny noises?
 
2014-05-12 01:56:39 AM
Yawn. This is only a surprise for kids who haven't learned deception.
 
2014-05-12 01:57:39 AM
North Carolina, that's horseman country.

/Woooo!

A homeless woman with Tourette's they dressed up as Elsa from "Frozen"?

The media never shows us the footage of the parents voluntarily leaving their families to go overseas.
 
2014-05-12 02:11:58 AM
THIRD BASE
 
2014-05-12 02:18:25 AM
Of course I can guess who the catcher was. Some kid throwing out the first pitch for no discernible reason? Didn't win a contest or anything? Hmmm...

oldweevil: THIRD BASE


I'm not asking you what the name of the third-baseman is!
 
2014-05-12 02:21:20 AM
New daddy?
 
2014-05-12 02:23:07 AM
And that catcher's name was... Ty Cobb, back from the dead.

And now you know the rest of the story.

That's the only surprise homecoming video I want to see.

And getting paid to do it. It's a job, with more sacrifices than some, and less than others. it's not like we draft these guys, and/or don't pay them.

I like the way you guys think!

Plus hasn't this been done to death?

Oh. I guessed Piazza

Was it the evil "Ha Ha Man" that mommy says lives under the floor in the furnace room with the spiders and will either try to brush my hair or eat me if I play in there?
 
2014-05-12 02:41:15 AM
So, dad couldn't find a real job?
Oh wait, I forgot.
He was FIGHTING FOR OUR FREEDOMTM .

Her dad?

Sorry, but this shiat is just getting old.  I'm sure dad and daughter or son get a real kick out of these reunions, but why the fark does it have to make the news?

It's gotten to the point where I'm sure some kids whose fathers (or mothers) are serving overseas look at things with the vain hope that maybe their parent will meet them and are severely disappointed when it doesn't happen.

Do these people just lie to their kids?  "Sorry, I don't know when I'll be home" as they're staring at the orders to return to the states?

Maybe I'm just a humorless bastard who has no idea what it's like to serve in the military, but I would think that if I did serve in the military my wife and children would be the first that I would let know exactly when I was coming home.

Did he say prossibly ?

They're not actually allowed to tell their families when they'll be home.  At least, they didn't used to be.
 
2014-05-12 03:38:46 AM
Guys, it is a seven year old.  It isn't like she watches the news, browses internet stories on these events, or reads a paper (assuming they still exist).  It is easy to deceive at that age and a nice little payoff.  Now any teenager getting that treatment shouldn't be shocked given the stories that happen unless it is done well (the free throw one was done well, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ZrQ2t3sF6Q)

How come there are no heartwarming stories about a mother hyping her kid up about Dad coming back home for weeks on end.  Then, when they go down to the airport, the kid gets to watch hid Dad's flag covered coffin come out of the cargo hold?

Oh, right.  We don't want to see that side of Bush's legacy.

Every day is like this for me. Except iraq is the gym and the kids are my dogs.

Pretty sure they still can't until very, very late. We have a family friend in the army, and the most I think he can do is hint at it to his mother or wife.

\all in the name of not giving up troop movements that they probably already know anyway

You will just *LOVE* next season of "Once Upon A Time", then.

These are the ground rules. He hooks up with one minor league promotion a season. Usually takes him a couple weeks to pick the team - kinda like his own spring training.   Well, Charlotte wasn't the most promising prospect of the season.

Oh you must have missed ESPN yesterday at any given point.

Moms surprising their kids like this. All. Day. Long.

If the catcher was Brian McCann, he would start a fight with the girl for violating some unwritten law of baseball

Like anyone could do anything useful with that information anyhow.

And who cares who comes and goes from Germany?

That sounds like a country song, just replace bush's legacy with some pap smear about honor and duty...
