In Defense of Baseball
I was up late last night and don't have a real post for today. But I do have a brief message for the many minions out there who have been brainwashed into believing that baseball is boring. Last night, the Kansas City Royals played their first postseason game in 29 years. The stadium was rocking. Two excellent pitchers started well but then got roughed up a bit. The Royal's manager did something stupid. They fell way behind, then battled back. They tied the game in the 9th inning and won it in the 12th. And now they get to play a playoff series and the Oakland A's get to go on vacation. The Royals are not my team, but I cheered hard for them last night. And because in baseball there is no clock it never struck midnight- and Cinderella is still playing! So here's my final, thoughtful and sophisticated message to all of you who find baseball to be slow moving and boring...
It's October. The fun is just beginning. Now let's go Pirates!
