Soccer is terrific if you love it. Football is great if you can take it. Basketball is wonderful if you can endure it. Baseball is magnificent if you can believe it. Other than baseball, I can’t say I love or even like all of the major sports. However, I embrace them.
Watching the Major League Baseball Playoffs tonight, I didn’t have a horse in the race. I didn’t care who won and I only knew of a select few of these elite players participating. In the 8th inning, I may have been alone in our house, but there was seating room only during that 8th inning when The Washington Nationals were in pursuit of defeating the Milwaukee Brewers. The city of D.C. blew up with joy rather than uncertainty. You don’t have to have a horse in the race to enjoy life…..and sports, can provide that joy.
