Baseball isn’t a distraction; it’s the reason for it all.
Funny. I don’t see gun violence in Goodwyn’s paper.
Opening Day at Fenway, today. This day is always the official start of spring for me. :)
I notice Al’s list of ills on the paper doesn’t mention Ukraine. No mentions of the thousands for displaced people, hundreds of dead civilians, massive destruction of homes and infrastructure, but the status of the Russians, that’s what matters.
Life is a b!tch and most commentators here are proficient at doing it.
Art, music, gardening, reading, sports, we want and need our distractions.
I used to watch BB growing up with my uncles.
The game has changed, the rules have changed, the dress code has changed, …wait! There is no dress code!
They’re not the clean shaven, trimmed haired guys we used to watch. Same for any sport.
Their salaries are through the roof, and some have sketchy life styles….
Take me out to the ball game….buy me some peanuts and cracker jacks….
Where have you gone, Joe DiMaggio?Our nation turns its lonely eyes to youWoo, woo, woo.
Love me some baseball!
Baseball is a distraction going to a Minor League came week after next. At least it is a good one.
I would pay to see President Biden attempt to throw out the first pitch.
Now with the imaginary called strike for taking too long in the batter’s box
All the headlines have been in the news for decades. Pandora’s box has been opened and mere human beings are having a difficult time trying to come up with solutions… don’t forget plastic bits in every living being on earth, fires, floods, etc., pandemics, banning books, pushing women back into second class citizens, voter repression, trump’s delusions, magas making threats anonymously, and… climate change.
If I want a nap I’ll drink a beer and lay in the shade.
Go Cardinals! St. Louis, the best Baseball fans in the nation.
I won’t be able to fall asleep in the third inning and wake up in the 4th inning within a half hour nap
Republicans love distractions. And deflections.
Games are too long? Solution— Don’t shorten the play, shorten the commercial breaks. You know, like before television and radio bloated the game with ads and self promos. Next they’ll try to “speed” up the NFL and college football.
About 15 – 20 years ago a baseball team made a deal with Hasbro wherein Hasbro would supply the team with a quantity of G. I. Joe action figures – the team’s first sergeant, airborne infantryman Conrad “Duke” Hauser – in special bags with the team’s logo; the figure itself was simply the same version as the most recent retail release, and the bag would be the only thing special. The first X number of kids who bought tickets to a July 4th game would get one of these figures for free.
Even though it would just be the figure with no accessories of any kind, let alone weapons, a large number of anti-war activists denounced the giveaway.
Pitch clock,no numerous throws to 1st base,batters staying in the box….what’s next? Oh,they can’t play 9 innings,let’s make it 7…..
I don’t need a distraction. The GOP created all of those messes. I enjoy watching Biden clean them up.
Al — Stand by for flak from knee-jerk Dems regardless of your stance vis-a-vis the Trump Affair — which has the stink of the Alfred Dreyfuss Affair of long ago.
I like presidents who haven’t been indicted
