Tonight was the last game of the regular season.  The Tigers won and ended the season with 10 wins and 3 losses.  Woot!  Woot!  Playoffs begin a week from Saturday, so they have a practice next Wednesday evening at 6pm.  I really like this picture of my boy - especially the Gatorade mustache he is sporting!

It's a great picture! The Gatorade just adds to the look!

Mari - I think the Gatorade might be permanent!

This is an awesome photo -- I love his gatorade mustache too, but I particularly like the overall tan tone of the photo -- the dirt, his jersey -- did you perhaps give the background a slight sepia tone?

Oz Girl - Actually I used a Pioneer Woman action on it - "Colorized" from her Action Set 2. I love playing with these on Photoshop. You can download her action sets here.

bentonflocke - He was a little miffed that he wasn't playing that inning, and when I said "Let me get a shot of my favorite son.." he didn't say "I'm your only son!" as he normally does.
