It’s nearly April, and that’s got us thinking – at least partially – about Opening Day! Hey, we’re Cubs fans… at this point, we’re still in it! Every team wants to have a superstar, but even at the little league level, it’s the fundamentals that win ball games. And that, of course, means pitching and catching. We’re not major league scouts, but we’re pretty confident in saying that Fritz the dog won’t make anyone’s starting nine, based on this video that’s gone beyond viral!
In all fairness, Fritz is a retriever, not a catcher. This video is awesome in its own right, but the slow-motion and music track make it a must-watch-over-and-over in our book. Plus, the sheer variety of the airborne menu is hilarious! Yep. We’re aware donuts, tacos, and pizza probably aren’t on most veterinarians’ list for doggie diets. Fritz’s person is quick to point out that they don’t practice frequently – which might explain Fritz’s lousy performance!
Perhaps there’s a better spot in the lineup for Fritz, but right now he’s got our attention, our sympathy, and our thumbs-up for persistence!
