I’M A PROUD Atlanta Braves fan.
My home is in the middle of what the team markets as “Braves Country.”
I’m ready to see another World Series win as much as anybody who’s ever done the tomahawk chop.
Tonight, I thought I’d write a little letter to some other members of Atlanta’s fan base.
LOSS IS NEVER fun.
I almost wrote this post about death, but it’s the weekend so I changed my mind.
COLLEGE FOOTBALL MIGHT be cancelled, which seems par for the course in a totally crazy year.
I guess we’ll see, but, as I read the other day, I continue to root for a vaccine.
I think I’ll wait for the official announcements before I comment any more, but today’s news is disappointing.
I realize there are bigger fish to fry. I realize there are a lot more important, and a lot more serious, things going on in the world than whether football is played, but the prospect of a canceled season is disappointing nonetheless.
This post is a response to Sue’s prompt, which is, “totally.”
A HOME RUN of the walk-off variety happened tonight, and it brought back memories.
WHEN A BASEBALL or softball game is over, there are winners and there are players who can’t win for losing.
There’s another person, though, who’s quite familiar with the can’t-win-for-losing feeling.
ORIGINALLY, I PLANNED to write this column about San Francisco Giants relief pitcher Sam Coonrod.
I had never heard of Coonrod until a few days ago, when he made headlines for standing while his teammates kneeled for a Black Lives Matter ceremony.
SOUNDS ARE ABUNDANT.
Tonight, when I went outside to cut my fingernails, they were everywhere.
The frogs made sounds.
The bugs made plenty.
The owls cranked up their calls.
Even the clippers made noise.
It was like everything had its place in the symphony of the night.
A good thing happened today.
People on different sides of an argument found common ground, and the world — or at least the sports world — is better for it.
It looks like we’ll see Major League Baseball this year after all.
Aside from some games in the first two months, there’s a chance 2020 might be a year without sports.
A notebook is a type of article full of notes about different topics or extra information for which a reporter couldn’t find a place in a story.
Since today’s WordPress Discover prompt is “note,” I thought I’d jot down some random ones.
