In a clear sign that the end times are near, The Kansas City Royals swept a three game home series against the heavy hitting Boston Red Sox. Go us!!! In the process, KC beat Jonathon Papelbon (of the Nintendo stats line) and Curt Schilling (vying for his 15th victory). Have I said, “Go us!!!”?
The excitement at Kauffman Stadium was huge, sort of like the early 80s. Baseball, in my mind, is and will always be the national sport. Yes, I know that the NFL is far and away the sport that gets the best TV ratings and has the best business model, etc. So what? Baseball has something you can follow (even on teams that are out of the running): a great hitter’s daily line, a rookie pitcher’s progress, etc.–and it’s new every day.
I’m truly saddended every year when the boys of summer are gone.
