I first met Thor when he came to a book launch event for my children’s book, Superheroes are for Real. He went to the finals of the rock-paper-scissors mini-tournament, but finished in second place to a tiny human.
That first grader had serious rock-paper-scissors skills.
I was grateful this superhero had time for a game of catch. In 2017, Thor raised $3,500 for the American Cancer Society as part of the “Real Men Wear Pink!” campaign. To celebrate, his cape and Mjolnir were decked out in pink.
Superheroes are for real.
Like every catch-playing day so far this year, it was cold — 14 degree wind chill.
A quick 25 throws at Dan Kinney park. Miracle Field was empty.
Interesting fact: Thor has a deep love for the Cleveland Indians. I wonder what Noah Syndergaard thinks of that.
Thor’s big dream for 2018 is to do more charity work. You can contact him here: https://www.facebook.com/SpringfieldsThor/.
Overall, it was quite the Marvelous game of catch.
This game of catch was fueled by the best donut in town: St. George’s Double Chocolate.
Here’s hoping the Chiefs get a W.
