baseballboyani.gif (13774 bytes) Welcome to my Sports Page.  I Love sports --- all sports.  I am good at sports and besides that, I am a "Good Sport."  Do you like sports?  Get the picture, Sport?

O.K. My name is r ani.gif (9453 bytes)w_y.gif (8688 bytes)w_a.gif (8978 bytes)w_n.gif (10687 bytes), and I am six years old.  I live in Massachusetts and have just started first grade.  I have taken T-Ball for one season and gone to soccer camp for three summers.  I love soccer!  In November, I start basketball practice.

I live with my parents and two sisters (yuck). Their names are Jacqui and Kerry. My Dad and his family like to go outside with me and play sports. Mommy and my sisters like to do "girl stuff." They're not very good at sports and they always get in my way.

One of the things I like to do is save money for sick and poor people.  I have a special bank (a football helmet) to save in; and when it is full, Mommy, Daddy, and I will decide who to give it to.  I wish everybody would do this, then the whole world would be better and everybody would be happy.

One day, while playing baseball with my Dad, I hit the ball so hard that it broke!  I wish that I could always hit the ball that way.

I have a dog and a cat. Ribbons is the dog and Little Foot is my cat.  Little Foot is very special and very smart.  On Sept. 1st., we brought him to the Vet's for a check-up.  Before we could get him inside, he ran away and escaped.  We looked all over and put ads in the paper.  We took walks in the woods looking for him.  We thought we would never see him again and we were all very, very sad.  On Oct. 14th., we opened the door to go outside and Little Foot ran in.  Were we surprised!!  He was missing for six weeks.  I think our love and prayers brought him back home to us.

My biggest fan is Memere. That is French for grandmother.  I like to speak French.  I can say red apple and orange (pomme rouge and orange) and I can count to ten (un, deux, trois, quartre, cinq, six, sept, huit, neuf, et dix). Memere says that I pronounce all of the words the right way. This is what Memere looks like.  She always roots for me.

My Memere makes the best homemade applesauce, but I don't really like her frog eye pudding.

Want to play a game?   O.K.  This is what you have to do. Here is a picture of a football helmet.   Can you name all the teams on it? The answer will be at the bottom of this page.   Good luck!

Sometimes my family plays this game with me. It is called "Winning Team." This is what they tell me.

     "Ryan, you are on the winning team when you clean your room, but you are on the losing team when you pick on your sisters."

     "Ryan, you are on the winning team when you are polite, but you are on the losing team when you talk fresh."

     "Ryan, you are on the winning team when you count to ten, but you are on the losing team when you lose your temper."

     "Ryan, you are on the winning team when you ignore Patrick, but you are on the losing team when you fight on the school bus."

     "Ryan, you are on the winning team when you try your best, but you are on the losing team when you don't listen to us."

I am going to try real hard to be on the winning team all of the time.  I don't want to be a loser.

A message from Memere:


Hi Champ,

I hope that you like this page.  It was made especially for you!  Mommy and I decided that we should pick sports for this page because that is all you talk about.

You were my very first grandchild Ryan, and you brought so much happiness to my life.  When you were born, you were ten pounds and sooo big!!  You were also very strong.  When you were less than one hour old, you lifted up your head and looked from side to side.  I think that right then I knew you would make a great football player.  Whether or not you become a football, hockey, or basketball player, I want you always to remember that, no matter what, you will always be a champion in my book.  I see you work so hard to be the best you can be, and I am so proud of you!  You try so hard to accomplish so much.

There are a few things you shouldn't forget, though.  You should always remember to give everyone a turn, even if they are not as good as you are.  That is called being a team player.  You should always congratulate the winners, even when you are upset that you lost.  That is called being a "good sport."  You should always do as your coach directs.  That is called teamwork.  And you should always play the game to the best of your ability and for the sheer joy of it.  That is called team spirit.  If you live your life, following these guidelines, you will most surely become "most valuable player"I love you, Ryan.

A little boy was overheard talking to himself as he strode through his backyard, baseball cap in place and toting ball and bat. "I’m the greatest baseball player in the world." he said proudly. Then he tossed the ball in the air, swung and missed. Undaunted, he picked up the ball, threw it into the air and said to himself, "I’m the greatest baseball player ever!" He swung at the ball again, and again he missed. He paused a moment to examine the bat and ball carefully. Then once again he threw the ball into the air and said, "I’m the greatest baseball player who ever lived." He swung the bat hard and again missed the ball. "Wow!" he exclaimed. "What a pitcher!"
