Every season, Dobie Wallender would start off thinking:
He'd tell his wife:
He'd tell his team mates:
He'd tell the owners:
And all of them would think Dobie was a terrible bare. And each year, just like clock work, Dobie would end up hitting his regular. 260.
Then - one year - on the first day of the season, Dobie Wallender went four for four.
And on the second day of the season, Dobie Wallender went four for four.
And all that week and the week after that, Dobie Wallender went four for four.
His wife was very happy. His team mates were very happy. And the owners (who gave him a sizeable increase) were very happy.
He got prizes. He got awards. He got a "Dobie Wallender Day" ceremony from the citizens of the community.
