162: Baseball's Green Fields Give Way to Winter

As baseball season ends we take a moment to reflect on its place in its fans' lives. Maybe it's mostly in my own. We're into fall now, and for reasons explained here, that breaks my heart.

This episode does not come from a Story Night event. It comes from a moment that happens each year.

The music for this episode is Frank Sinatra's There Used to Be a Ballpark.

Thank you for listening. We look forward to hearing your story.

92: Mike Etgen — Winning when Losing

Mike Etgen drove the bus for a high school football team experiencing what sports people call "a rebuilding year." On the bus he saw something so gracious for a team that won while losing. Mike told the story at the September 6, 2018 Story Night, when the theme was "sport."

Thank you for listening. We look forward to hearing your story.

90: Andrew Binion — A Culminating Feast

Andrew Binion rode his bike from the Pacific Northwest to San Francisco and along the way dreamed of eating Chinese food. His dream came true in a way.

Trigger warning: You might find this story gross.

Andrew told this story in November 2015 when the theme was Breaking Bread.

Thank you for listening. We look forward to hearing your story.

89: Scott Park — Still He Rides

Some pretty big news isn't reason for Scott Park to put away the bike yet. Scott told this story at the June 2018 Story Night when the theme was "flight." It's worth noting that Scott is still biking, evidenced by the photos on his Facebook profile this week.

Thank you for listening. We look forward to hearing your story.

Jeff Allen wants to create a culture shock. A couple of encounters with Canadians made it seem possible. Apologies for the audio quality. The recording quality was not great that night, August 2, 2018 when the theme was "Culture Shock." We'll bring more stories from that night, at least the ones we can hear.

Thank you for listening. We look forward to hearing your story.

87: Johanna Baxter — Flying with Nolan

It's yet another baseball story, kind of. Johanna Baxter was on a plane with a legend, not to mention her ex-husband. The kids didn't care, and Johanna didn't know much about the supposed legend.

It was something noteworthy in Texas.

Thank you for listening. We look forward to hearing your story.

Alicia Morales wanted to see Newsboys in concert, but was 14 and didn't have the money. A local radio station was willing to send someone. Mom made sure she got there without the danger that happens in the city on Halloween.

Alicia told this story on July 5, 2018 at Story Night when the theme was "Winning."

Thank you for listening. We look forward to hearing your story.

83: Ian Logan — Into the Great Wide Open

Tom Petty provided the soundtrack to a relationship Ian Logan had when he was younger. You can guess for yourself what the last song in that relationship might have been.

Ian told this story in December 2017 when the theme was soundtrack.

Thank you for listening. We look forward to hearing your story.
