|Baseball teaches you about Life|
Spring is baseball and I am looking forward to another San Francisco Giants season.
I've been a Giants fan for as long as I can remember. My mom was a Giants fan and we would go to the games during the day. Back then in the 60's, they would have "Ladies Day" every Wednesday it free. Free is always a good thing!
Many say baseball is too slow for them. EXACTLY. You want to sit in the heat of summer, sweating and getting your blood pressure up? I don't. That is why baseball is great for the summer. Plus, it's a game I can listen to on the radio. I don't have to watch it. Whereas football and other sports, it's best to watch it. Baseball, I can paint the house, do gardening, just have it on - perfect companion on those Lazy Hazy Days of Summer. I love camping and listening to the game. I especially LOVE the sound of the bats and before a game when I arrive at the stadium, walking down to my seat. The green field is beautiful when my eyes first gaze upon it and of course, the crackling sound of those practice bats.
I was blessed to live near Candlestick - and ATT park for most of my life. I always went to the games. Now, I live 200 miles to the north of San Francisco and I haven't been to a game since 2008. I always say I am going, but never get around to it. The husband is not a sports person. I mean, he'd go with me but it is more fun to go with a true blue fan. My sons used to take me to the game, every Mothers Day. I miss that.
Meanwhile, I am perfectly fine, sitting on a warm spring or summer (or fall) evening...on the patio, swatting bugs, watching the dog play - having a drink of whatever and listening to a good ole baseball game.
