Nothing super-spiritual today, just a note that I noticed Rick Phillips was lamenting the demise of the Red Sox over at Ref21. I didn't realize that Rick was a member of "The Nation."
Remember Rick, "Baseball breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone" (A. Bartlett Giamatti, ex-commissioner, in "The Green Fields of the Mind"). My wife and I will be rooting for the home team this Friday night at Fenway.
Just wait 'til next year!
