It was weird, I wasn't nervous at all, i felt like I should have been. I don't know why. I just kept going out there and doing my thing. I was really nervous before the game, leading up to the game. But after the three-pitch eighth inning, I was like, ‘This is possibly going to happen.’.
I wasn't specific at all. It's not a given that I would be the one. You know what I mean ? With two girls, you never know like who's going to fulfill what weird f --- ing gender role thing, we don't do that or think about it in those terms. She just grabbed that bowl and made it happen. It was f --- ing so cute.
I probably landed my run twice( in practice) when I'm used to landing it eight times, normally, and so that puts you in a weird headspace... I overflowed with emotion when I was able to land it on the first go, and it opened up a lot of opportunity for me to go try something new.
The big question at this point is not whether or not we have these anomalies, but what's causing them? Is this something natural that gives us a window a gateway into another world or another level of reality? Or is this the byproduct of some kind of weird technology, be it something secret and man-made or something that's extraterrestrial?
It’s very personal, it’s still weird talking about it. He was trying to get to my mom. It was meant for everyone that was in the house. I mean, the man had four or five propane tanks in the car. They were friends and it turned out really bad. This is very personal to our family, so it’s kind of touchy.
