Jagger is on the Fountain Valley Pony Baseball All Star team for the Shetland A team.

Last night they had practice from 6 to 8.

The air is thick with testosterone while all the fathers stand on the side line, chest out, watching the best of the best in the Shetland division play ball as a team.

Last night I made the mistake of leaving Josh alone with the other dad's while I grabbed a pizza for us to eat on the sidelines.

There is one dad in particular that always talks to Josh about the way Jagger plays and how he would love for Jagger to be on the football team with his son because they are both so good at sports and they play really well together. They start talking about what they do for a living and Josh finds out that his new found buddy is an architect. He knows some MLB stars as a result of his occupation and has even had a couple over to his house on 4 acres in Corona.

As Josh salivates over the name dropping Mr. "Architect Dad" asks Josh if he goes fishing.

For some reason Josh says YES!

Architect Dad: Lakes or ponds?

Josh: Lakes

Architect dad: You should come out to my Corona house! I have a man made lake that I just filled with trout!

Josh: Sounds Great!

Last time Josh went fishing was probably in elementary school at a fish hatchery in Hesperia!

I tried to explain the winning a gold fish by throwing ping pong balls in a bowl at the O.C. Fair does not count as "fishing".

"How do you expect to pull this off" I asked.

You can't show up with a Sponge Bob fishing pole, cheese bait, a dorky hat and pass as a real fisherman! He could try and convince Architect Dad the he learned to fish from black bears and only catches them with his teeth but that probably wouldn't work either.

Thankfully Josh has found a solution to the dilemma he has gotten himself into.

He gave his usual response when faces with a challenge.

"I'll Google it!"
