August Happiness Challenge -- Day 30

Look at my happy kitty
Tuesday's happiness: Kyle Hendricks. This Cub team has lots of big, colorful personalities with charisma to burn. But there's one player I always forget about: Kyle Hendricks.

He's quiet. He doesn't throw very hard. He's not exciting to watch, either on the mound or in front of the microphone.

Except damn, this year he just keeps winning. Tuesday night he led the team to victory, pitching seven scoreless innings. He now has the lowest ERA in the league!

The fact that this unsung hero is being talked about for the Cy Young Award makes me happy.
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.

If you want to play along, just come back here (meaning to this blog, not this individual post) each day in August, looking for the happy cat. Every day I will try to have a post with the headline: August Happiness Challenge: Day [X]. Leave a comment and then post your own daily happiness, with August Happiness Challenge in the title to make it easy to find.
