Day Off

Good days move too fast and bad days not fast enough. Street-corner philosophers can explain the phenomenon in a minute, but Reggie skipped the street corner this morning and was crammed on a downtown 2 train.

It had already been a long ride from Burke Avenue when he collapsed the newspaper in his lap.

“Nothing,” he said. “There’s no real news on the guys. I know A-Rod and Jeter and everyone else can use a day off in September, but it feels like forever since we played.”

It was quickly pointed out that the Yankees win over Seattle was a little more than 24 hours before.

“It seems longer,” Reggie said. “I’m always looking forward to the next one. We need every game we can get.”

He snapped open the newspaper and scanned the standings.

“Any day without a win is bad.”

I’m feeling a little “off” myself. Let’s get a win tonight!
