Hail to the Hops

Hail to the Hops

Bob, George and Jim

For pure relaxation, it’s hard to beat Tuesday night baseball on a 70-degree night with two of my favorite people — longtime friend Bob Ehlers and brother-in-law Jim Rauh. We met up in Hillsboro to see the hometown Hops take on the Vancouver Canadians in a Class A ballgame. The Hops got shut out for the first time this season, but we made instant friends with the couple in front of us — a George Carlin lookalike named Mark and his wife Nancy. They are retirees who moved to Oregon just two weeks earlier and were amazed by how friendly Oregonians are. Yep. Got that right.
