Dispatches from Baseball City, U.S.A.

Two cheerful vignettes now that we have a baseball team:

Vignette #1: At lunch yesterday with my dad the Yankee fan, I asked him, "If we'd stopped 100 people on the street last month and told them one of us would be rooting for a first-place team and one of us for a last-place team, how many people would have correctly guessed which was which?"

He said, "Not me."

I said, "Me either."

Vignette #2: Later in the afternoon, I'm sitting at a red light when a complete stranger in another car pulls alongside, rolls down his window and shouts, "First place, man!" I replied, "Isn't it great? And we just hung 6 in the 7th inning to go up 7-3!" He said, "Is the game on the radio?" I said, "Yes, on 1050!" He flashed a thumbs-up, honked and drove away.

Yes, friends, life is good.
