This comment-of-the-day was by bobbt on the post Stop Trying to Control Men! (Like the Met’s Daniel Murphy)
Daniel Murphy‘s decision is a ‘no brainer’ and it opens a sore spot for me. 23 years ago this Sept.9th, my son was born and I missed it because I went to work. Work was scarce at the time and money was becoming even more scarce. I was slowly failing at providing and staying employed. So the ‘Man Box’ won. Looking back, that money I made that day, oh it helped, but it didn’t ‘make or break’ us. If God himself came down and said “OK , here’s the deal, you get 1 moment in your past to ‘do over’”, although I may have a list, my choice would also be a ‘no brainer’.
