Somebody, might have been Willie Stargell, once said "They say Play Ball, man. Not Work Ball."


I'd look it up, but I'm a lollygagger.


Beautiful, Lance.

And in honor of Mark Twain's new Tupac-ian post-death release, here's something relevant, George Carlin's (who won the Twain award shortly before his death) bit on Baseball vs. Football. I consider it as a companion piece to yours, on the changing of the American psyche from one of a rational, pragmatic (before that word became code for corporatism disguised as 11th dimensional chess), Thoreau-ian outlook to that of permanent war.

That said, I type this as I watch with fingernails bitten to the quick as my Eagles play the Texans. I mean, honestly, how many facemasks on Vick can they not call? Those durn refs just want the 8.5 spread beat, the commie traitor socialist nazi pigs.
