Keep At It

'There is no such thing as failure. There is only giving up too soon.'

Obviously, Dr. Salk never saw Cleveland's bullpen.

I laughed. Bitterly. I have to admit, Mike, I've utterly lost my taste for the Indians, and even MLBaseball. Haven't watched an inning of a game in a year or more (with the singular exception of a game a friend invited me to--thanks Terry). I don't know if it's the cheapo owner and his idiot GM (who once pretended to be like his brainy statshound Oakland counterpart made famous in Michael Lewis's book Moneyball, but who now can't even pretend to be smart) or the doping scandals or the absurd price of tickets and concessions, or possibly a combination. But after a lifetime of following baseball closely, it's sadly been reduced to nothing. I'm guessing I'm not alone in that.
