A Little Bit Torn

Some of you may remember that I wrote a post back in May about T.C. the Bear, from the Minnesota Twins, and how he surprised my son, Finn, with a pretty fantastic gift package after meeting him at Wally’s birthday party.

Here it is…in case you’re interested

So, imagine my surprise when Finn’s birthday rolled around 4 weeks later and he received a 2nd gift box in the mail.  One that said, “Surprise!  Happy Birthday!” I really couldn’t even believe that someone would go that far to make Finn happy. And, Finn…well, he was ecstatic.  I’m not sure I’ve ever seen him beam so much.  Finn’s a pretty lucky kid on many levels, but to have made a connection with someone like TC all on his own and to be remembered twice, in such a big way, by his new friend was beyond cool for him.

Not surprisingly, Finn was so smitten with TC (as was I) that I promised to take him to a Twins game at Fenway.  My brother actually got the tickets and treated us to a great day at the park yesterday.

If you follow the Red Sox you may know that they beat Minnesota on Thursday 13-2.  But then, unbelievably, they lost Friday 2-1….and dropped out of 1st place.  They lost again on Saturday.  Sunday was the last of a four game series.  Finn was psyched for the game, but was feeling a little torn.  He wanted to support his home-town team…a team that he loves unconditionally….but, he also wanted to appreciate all that TC gave him and wear his Twins shirt, hat, etc.  The horror.

With blessings from TC via email, Finn ended up wearing his Pedroia shirt and Sox hat…and cheering for them to win…but, that doesn’t mean that TC the Bear isn’t his all-time favorite bear in the world.  The Red Sox won in the end, 8-7.  And, while TC was off in St. Louis celebrating FredBird’s birthday, Finn was psyched to see the Twins play.

Thanks again, TC, for going above and beyond to spread happiness and to further Finn’s love for baseball.  You’re one of a kind.
