I was 16 and a lifeguard in South Haven, Michigan on the Lake Michigan beach. I had told Denny Porter (lied) that I was Al Kaline's sister. I knew everything about Al Kaline that anyone could know - he was my hero (still is!).

Denny asked me out and we drove to Saugatuck, another quaint Lake Michigan resort town. He grilled me about my "brother, Al", all the way there. I didn't miss a beat.

We had hamburgers and root beer at an A&W drive in, walked on the beach, had a swimming race (which I won), and drove back.

I doubt that he ever knew I wasn't Al Kaline's sister and if he had known, he would never have asked me out!
