I was watching the Yankees and the Red Sox game 2 with my daughter when she told me a little joke that only a very few people would get. You need to know baseball and also have a good feel for everyday Irish (and British?) phrases:
"Pedro's not the full shilling, is he daddy?"
I knew she was referring to Curt Schilling when she told me. It was perfect because Pedro's not quite as good as Schilling, but also because Pedro's defintely got a screw loose.
I was at once happy, because she showed such a good grasp of baseball, and alarmed because I wasn't sure if I was turning my children into weirdoes. Let's just say, there isn't a lot of talk about last night's ball game in the average Irish school yard.
