For Pete's Sake

Danny Duffy’s grandma sent cookies to cheer him up while he’s on DL

There is one truth in the universe that every human being can agree on: grandma’s cookies always make things better.

Doesn’t matter if you are a little kid, a college student, a blue-collar worker, a white-collar worker or a professional baseball player, when grandma sends cookies, it’s a good day.

Royals left-hander Danny Duffy, who has been on the disabled list since May 29 because of a Grade 1-plus oblique strain, would undoubtedly agree. Duffy seemed to miss being with his teammates during the Royals’ recent road trip as he live-tweeted during a number of games.

But Duffy got a little pick-me-up in the form of cookies from his grandmother. Duffy shared a photo on Instagram of this sweet note that came with the care package:

Grandma’s cookies make everything better!

If they aren’t on your diet, freeze or share them. They freeze well!

Love you lots Grandma.

Is that wonderful or what? Grandma’s cookies do make everything better, even if you aren’t feeling great. I also love the concern about his diet.

In Duffy’s Instagram post, he wrote: “My grandma is the greatest.”


My grandma is the greatest.
