The Only Game

The only game in town isn’t even in town.

“The closest thing we have to baseball is a meeting in Tampa,” says Jon from Highbridge.

It’s better than nothing.

“I’ve been looking forward to this for a week,” he admits. “Getting ready for next year is all we have around here.”

Everyone is hungry for news.

“They should do radio play-by-play,” Jon laughs. “Something like: ‘Before offering his opinion, Brian Cashman takes a bite of his glazed donut and washes it down with a swig of coffee…’

“We need something to fill the time,” he continues. “How many days until pitchers and catchers report?”

I guess the radio play-by-play would be something like when George Costanza brought a calzone to a Yankee meeting on “Seinfeld” and George Steinbrenner took a liking to it.

Steinbrenner: Eggplant, that’s a hell of a thing. Hmmm, everybody out, I’ve got eggplant on my mind! Costanza, go get me an eggplant calzone!

That is the best episode by far.
