This episode is a brief pause in season seven of the podcast to share something that I published to Troutbitten in the early years.
The last two weeks have been a whirlwind of emotion and activity. The days were filled with energy and adrenaline, as my youngest son's Little League baseball team won the league championship. They battled through two weeks of playoffs and took the title in the last series, where every game was decided in the final inning.
I've coached Little League for nine years, and this was my last. My youngest son is twelve, and this was his senior year of Little League.
To see it all end in such dramatic fashion was a gift. But the biggest emotions, from caring about something so deeply, are always a gift, whether that's in victory or defeat, love or loss.
When the Knights were on the edge of winning or losing the championship series, the day before the final game, I kept thinking about an experience I had with one of the largest trout I've ever lost. Years ago, I wrote that into a story on Troutbitten.
This episode is a l reading of a story that I first published on July 15, 2015, titled, This Is The End.
It's also a little about baseball.
