God bless Felix Hernandez. The man is a treasure. He’s a Miami Heat fan, and the Miami Heat are in the NBA Finals, and I wrote about it all over at Call to the Pen. I was just watching this video of Felix with his son before today’s game. Note the shorts! Miami Heat shorts! As a Seattle sports fan, this is just about all we have right now. Maybe the Mariners aren’t going to compete this year, or the next year, and maybe our basketball team belongs to someone else. But we can root for Felix, and we can root for the Miami Heat (as insane as that sounds), and we can do so knowing that the two fit together in the very best way. It feels alright, maybe even decent. It will have to do.
