I have to admit I am a huge baseball fan. Or to be more accurate, a Detroit Tigers fan. Or to be slightly more accurate, a Tigers maniac. As I’m writing this blog post the Tigers are chasing the Chicago White Sox, one game out of first place. Everybody around me is turning his or her attention to football but I am stuck on baseball. When I thought about a topic for this blog the only thing on my mind was the pennant race. So here it is, my ode to baseball.
In six short days the Tigers will either be heading to the post season or heading home for the off season. One way or the other I will adjust and move on to other important things—like Michigan football.
I suppose there are many more important and more spiritual things to be thinking about in these serious times. The news is full of political and international news that is of great concern to all people of good will. In the midst of this, there’s nothing like a little baseball to refresh the mind and heart.
What helps you escape a little from your stressful life? What turns you into an outright and irrational fan?
