A love without end, amen

Friendships can fade.

Marriages can crumble.

Promises can be broken.

Nations can fall.

But fall in love with a baseball team, and that commitment will never die.

Dodgers in Des Moines

This is my 20th summer in Des Moines, but my first Iowa Cubs Opening Day game.

Watching the Oklahoma City Dodgers, featuring pitcher Walker Buehler and outfielders Andrew Toles and Alex Verdugo.

In this photo you can see Walker Buehler on the mound, second baseman Jake Peter scratching his leg, and center fielder Alex Verdugo gesturing to the right fielder. Peter is a Mason City, Ia., native.

There are so many great photos from the Dodgers/Yankees World Series matchups (the Bums and Bombers have met 11 times in the Fall Classic). Here’s another one.

I’m a sucker for country duets

There’s a guy back in Dubuque County with whom I have almost nothing in common. But we do share an ear for country duets, particularly those from the 1970s and 80s.

Here are 5 good ones.
