It’s baseball season.
I mean, it HAS been since April. Derr.
But. The race is on. And the Red Sox, while leading the AL East, just dropped 2 of 3 to the Mariners. Ugh.
This is my favorite part of the season (second favorite? The very beginning. Because when the slopes close, the diamonds open).
I like that I can come home, crack a beer, indulge in pizza or wings and watch 9 innings of awesome. I like the nail-biters, like last week when my boys went into extra innings two days in a row.
I like watching Papi, Pedroia, Youk, Ellsbury and the rest power those bats and field balls.
P.S.: This is still one of my Top 10 All-time favorite movies.
