I must admit when I first skimmed the story – Who is the Route 29 Batman? – and saw it was about a guy my age in a Batman suit driving a Lamborghini, I laughed and thought what a nut (albeit a nut with a cool Batsuit and a sweet ride), but then I took a couple of minutes to read the entire story.
It’s the story of a Baltimore area businessman who spends time with sick kids, and yeah, he happens to do it in a Batsuit.
This Gotham city wannabe may be a little eccentric but it seems his heart is in the right place.
Baltimore Batman is 48 years old.
A funny thing about the late 40s – maybe some of you in this demographic will agree – it’s a time of life when you think more about things that matter more…like making a difference, giving more than taking, putting a smile on someone’s face.
We don’t have to buy $5k worth of black leather and neoprene to be a hero (I’m an old school spandex guy myself), sometimes simply giving of ones self is more powerful than a locomotive!
Go get ’em Route 29 Batman!
