BASEBALL is the only true sport. It is the only game in which the defense controls the ball and it is the only sport where a perfect game is when nothing happens. Baseball is very zen.
BASEBALL is generational. My father loved baseball. He played American Legion ball after WWII. He was a center fielder. When his right fielder dropped dead during a game Dad was so upset that he never played a game after that. He coached women’s softball and that’s how he met my mother, who played first base. I love baseball. My son and his wife love baseball.
BASEBALL simply is. In my family we call the winter season “the time when there is no baseball.”
I AM A GRINDER: a die-hard, dyed-in-the-wool, GOOD GUYS WEAR BLACK Chicago White Sox fan. I follow the Royals, Twins, Detroit, and Boston…and, gawd forbid, the Saint Louis Cardinals…but them soutside boys simply rawk…they have history and tradition and that certain jenny-say-kwaa that makes me a grinder.
Them nortside Cubbie bears suck.
