The Day Chris Bennett Almost Died

You people have no idea how close we were to a headstone which would have read "Friend. Lightbulb changer. Photographer."
Chris Bennett of Photography 139 graciously agreed to take pictures at last Saturday's Little League Challengers game.  He was the only adult on the field that I neglected to warn about the major league bat flip from one of the ball players.  He did quickly figure things out though as you can see from the photo of the bat flying directly at him below (click on the image for a larger version where you can see the bat better).
Thanks for taking the pictures Chris.  As always, they're fantastic.  Thanks also for still being alive.

I was glad to do it and glad to still be alive.

I also got pretty sweet payment in the shirt.

I might try to negotiate for a second shirt: size medium if you guys still have an overwhelming collection of mediums.

I think "Lightbulb Changer" would go first on my list of lifetime accomplishments.

I suspect we do have quite a few mediums. Fortunately for all of us, Jesse wasn't in charge of ordering the shirts or we'd have cases of unusable shirts due to his terminology mix-ups.
