Where were you when you found out?

Got into my classroom, was getting things together for that day, just happened to check my non- school email about 5 minutes before the bell rings. Clicked on some random story, and at the bottom of it I saw a picture of Trout and it said Angels-Trout extension. I only had time to read 12/430 no opt outs when the bell rings. Just enough time to let out a shout of joy and a fist pump before the students came in. 

And when Ohtani signed last year, it was lunch time and I had a few students that were Giants and Dodgers fans in my class. I got on MLBTR and saw that he had picked the Angels. I told the students that Ohtani had made his choice. I told them it was the Angels and they thought I was kidding. I put the article up on the board and they all lost it. I could tell they really wanted him on their team. For the rest of lunch, i had Ohtani's Japanese highlights playing.

I want to hear your stories.

I was at work, not working, dinking around on Twitter when I saw Chuck (or AW, can't remember, they are one in the same) retweet the report about the extension. I then furiously started looking around for other reports. I probably worked harder in those few minutes than I have in my entire life. I'm sure my boss was proud as he looked over at me diligently typing away n my computer at work.

On the phone with my wife, pulling up to the gym, got a text from a guy I work with. I interrupted my wife as she was telling me something that was kind of important.   I apologized for interrupting her and she said something to the affect of, “holy shit that’s awesome, no problem”.

Your wife sounds amazing. What's his name?

I work nights and get home around 1230 AM. I get up at six to take my daughter to school and sometimes I go back to sleep after that. That morning I did, and when I woke up again I had a bunch of notifications. Needless to say...
