Perfect Fit

Joba Chamberlain is from Nebraska, but he fits perfectly in the Bronx.

“You get up in the morning when you’re washing your hair and you’re brushing your teeth, and you know you’re going to have to get yourself out of a jam,” Chamberlain explained after working out of a couple of tight spots in yesterday’s game.

The guys that gather around Juan Carlos’s coffee cart every morning smiled when they read that in the newspaper.

“That’s just like us,” said Javier from Walton Avenue.

Everyone nodded.

“We get into all kinds of scrapes,” Javier said. “Life ain’t perfect, but having Joba to get our team out of jams makes things a little brighter around here.”

That’s a perfect fit in this neighborhood.
