The Boy Who Loved...

I work part-time as a nursery school teacher. The 3-year-olds were playing with puppets, and this one very smart kid had a witch on his hand. He had names for the other puppets, so I asked what the witch's name was. I had to ask him two or three times, but finally he said, 'Tom Gordon.' The other teacher looked at me: "Like the pitcher?" I said. She laughed. She's a Yankee fan too. I found out later that the kid is also a Yankee fan. "A Mets fan?" I asked. He shook his head. "A Yankee fan?" He nodded. There you go. Maybe his parents are Flash Gordon fans.
