Happy for my Royals fan friends tonight. Good for them.
That was one of the best games you’ll ever see. Wow.
I had about 17 nightmares about this coming Friday’s Game 1 against the Cardinals.
In these bad dreams, we fell behind 3-0 as Clayton Kershaw struggled early. Then Dee Gordon got thrown out at the plate on a double. Then Hanley Ramirez made a terrible throw trying to get a Cardinal base runner at home. Ugh.
I tried to think about something non-baseball as I slept, hoping the Dodger-Cardinal nightmares would go away. But they never did.
My beloved Bums won their final five games of the regular season to finish with 94 wins and 68 losses.
It’s a marvelous record and something to be proud of, no matter how badly the Cardinals beat up on us in the playoffs this week.
The “Perfect Attendance Award” given to the luckiest high school seniors every year has to be the silliest idea in the history of mankind.
Everyone gets sick, and everyone carries potentially deadly viruses at some point in their lives.
Yet there is a segment of society that says “You should go to school/work no matter what.”
Congrats to the KC Royals and their fans for clinching a playoff berth last night. The Royals haven’t played a postseason game since 1985 (when I was 8).
I’ve been watching “The Roosevelts” on PBS. I love history. Love it.
It’s fantastic, as are all of Ken Burns’ documentaries. Each two-hour episode really zips by.
