August Happiness Challenge -- Day 18

Today's happiness -- A lot of Rizzo. Today the major leagues celebrated the Little League World Series with a game between the Cubs and the Pirates in Williamsport, PA. To say that my favorite Cub, Anthony Rizzo, seized the day would be an accurate statement, and I enjoyed watching him.

First, he hung around the with the kids before the game. He took part in their tradition of sliding down a hill on a piece of cardboard, and he enjoyed himself thoroughly.

Then he got his 23rd home run. The ball was returned to him, and chose to make it a gift to the short stop of Japan's little league team. Rizz took Yu Darvish, the Cub pitcher born in Osaka, with him to translate as the handed away the ball.

He was just so Rizz, all day. I enjoy this kid soooo much.


Each day in August you are to post about something that makes *you* happy. Pretty simple. And, it doesn't even have to be every day if you don't want it to be. It's a great way to remind ourselves that there are positive things going on in our lives, our communities, and the world.
