Trying to maintain some aspect of originality, I usually don’t quote many authors or stories that aren’t mine, my family’s, my friends and or enemies. However, after reading the following story in The Seattle Times this morning, I thought it was worth sharing. You don’t have to be a baseball enthusiast to appreciate it. I hope it’s true.
“A 97-year-old- Wisconsin man called 911 because he couldn’t find his TV remote and wanted to watch the Brewers’ playoff game,” noted Brad Dickson of the Omaha (Neb.) World Herald, “Considering that he is 97 and how often the Brewers make the playoffs, I say the call is justified.”
It reminded me of some wise old Seniors I know well. Baseball can also be funny.
