Confession Tuesday - Fall Ball edition
Dear Reader~ It's been a week since my last confession. It's been a year since I was pinching myself over my San Francisco Giants making it to the World Series. Sadly they did not make it this year but their winning it all last year was sweet and I confess that I still have to pinch myself over their post season success! Seasons like 2010 provide true baseball fans a lifetime of memories.
The World Series this year kicks off tomorrow night and I will be rooting for the St. Louis Cardinals. I confess that I have no love to give for the Rangers, besides in most instances with few exceptions I would root for a National League team.
My night has been no less hectic then my day. Left the office a little late. Picked up my niece and drove her back to our neighborhood to do a job interview. Then we ran to the store to shop for groceries. Home, fixed dinner for my wife (who worked late) and then drove back into the city to pick her up and return home. Re-heated dinner and then here I am. 10:30 p.m. already! I have work plans for tonight but at this hour I confess I have nothing more to give. I'm fighting to finish this confession.
I confess that each year I play a video season of baseball. A full season. Sometimes I'll play a second season over winter. I've become quite good at it. I suppose it's the kid in me. There is a lot of kid factor in all aspects of baseball. Yes, I'll confess that it's a frivolous activity. Still, I kind of feel like it keeps me sharp. It's my story and I'm sticking to it!
