Time In: Play Ball!

“The baseball mania has run its course. It has no future as a professional endeavor.” — Cincinnati Gazette editorial, 1879

“A man once told me to walk with the Lord. I’d rather walk with the bases loaded.” — Ken Singleton

opening-dayAh, Spring!   Instead of spending my leisure hours indoors, drinking beer and watching old movies, I can spend them outdoors, drinking beer and watching baseball.

For years we had a little wooden plaque hanging on our kitchen wall that my wife found at a craft fair,  inscribed with the missive “We interrupt this marriage to bring you the baseball season.”   Today?  It’s not that the more things change the more they stay the same, it’s that some things never change.  At any rate, my wife will be out riding her horse every weekend while the weather is nice, so who’s ignoring whom?  We interrupt this blog to bring you the baseball season…

Hope springs eternal.

Hope springs eternal.


  1. go to for another awesome sports blog!

  2. Enjoy! My season is football, so I’ll sit here quietly (except for the draft and training) until August.

  3. This cartoon should encourage Sox fans….

  4. I absolutely love the quote from the Cincinnati Gazette! Sharing this blog with my baseball loving friends (me? I love the outside with beer part … but don’t follow a team)

  5. Love that comic. Waiting for first pitch!!

  6. I never liked playing rounders as a kid at school and never understood the American version.
    You need a sensible game, such as cricket.

  7. Nicely done! I’m a big time baseball lover. When I was growing up, it was unusual for a girl to be such a sports fanatic, but I am and proud of it. There is nothing like going to the park and watching a game, especially if your team is fortunate enough to win. Mine did yesterday. Thanks for stopping by and the like of my post “Hovering”.

  8. I have a pal that works for the KC Royals; the field was covered in snow this week.
