So, imagine you're a major league baseball player. You hit your first career home run. It just so happens that your first career home run is a walk-off shot in the bottom of the 10th. You're on top of the world. Suddenly you get a text message from your wife, home alone with your two young kids, indicating that someone is trying to get into your home.

That's what happened to the Marlins Robert Andino. (http://www.sun-sentinel.com/sports/sfl-flspmarspec02sbapr02,0,7030981.story)

A man knocked at the door of Andino's south Miami-Dade County home while Renee was on the phone. He repeatedly requested entry, but would not identify himself, saying only, "It's me." According to an early account of the episode that made its way back to Dolphin Stadium, the man ultimately tried to force his way in but left when police arrived.

Scary, and talk about a complete change of emotions. From euphoria to panic in a matter of minutes. Thankfully everything turned out alright.

Don't hi-jack this with political talk.

How would this get political?


Why would she send him a text message? Wouldn't you call someone if someone was trying to break into your home?

Why would she send him a text message? Wouldn't you call someone if someone was trying to break into your home?So that the potential intruder wouldn't hear her calling for help and become so upset or enraged that something really bad happened?

I'm guessing, but it seems logical.

What a strange night for that guy's family. I hope he does not lose focus during the games by worrying about a home invasion.

Time to get some big dogs.
