The Baseball Fan
This is nail biting season when all the teams are scrunched up, when every game has meaning, when I take over the manager's role, when I deplore every decision that doesn't work out, when I yell at an unresponsive television, Why did you do that. ?
This is the season I dream of the post season, realize that they won an important game when I wore my red striped shirt and when they lost to a division rival I drank a glass of seltzer while listening to the game .
I ponder important questions: will the karma change if I wash the red striped shirt?
I don't take chances. The shirt will not be washed-- just aired out.
I resort to crossing my fingers.
