Baseball

As the World Series ends we enter a long winter and count the days until pitchers and catchers report to spring training in Florida and Arizona. Although the Cubs season was terrible and over by early April, it was still an amazing season. Yes I live and breathe Cubs but I am a fan of the game through and through. It took Leah some time to figure out that I am perfectly happy watching a good game between two teams I really don't care about just because of my love for the game.

Farewell baseball and thanks for another season of excitement.

As always, the words of Bart Giamatti are perfect:
“It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall all alone. You count on it, rely on it to buffer the passage of time, to keep the memory of sunshine and high skies alive, and then just when the days are all twilight, when you need it most, it stops.”
