There's Baseball in the Air!!
Baseball is in full swing. This is the time of the season I enjoy the most. Teams are starting to find themselves, stars are emerging while others are fading. The all-star game is coming up real soon, and before you know it, it’ll be September and the pennant races will really be heating up. After the World Cup concludes (Go Italy!) major league baseball will pretty much be the only thing on the sports schedule. Of course, there’s always golf, women’s basketball and car racing, none of which interest me even remotely. Baseball is THE only sport going on right now as far as I’m concerned, and I love it! That's why I have the Extra Innings baseball cable package from Direct TV -- it gives me all of the games every day so that I can watch every team, flipping around from game to game like a crazed baseball zombie, which I am. (this is a shameless plug -- Direct TV is writing a cheque right now.) After a while I don't know if I'm watching the Twins vs. Kansas City or the Tigers vs. the A's. Everything gets jumbled and I start sweating and chanting players' names out loud, "Ordonez, Garciaparra,
Feliz and Kent" (sounds like a law firm.) Anyway, I love baseball and now is the ideal time of year to be into it. I guess that's my point.
