First Pitch

Jon from Highbridge slumped in his seat on the 2 train this morning.

“A day off sucks the joy out of life,” he said. “There was nothing to watch yesterday and nothing to talk about today. Once you get in the daily groove of following the team it’s a little unsettling when there’s not much happening.”

Things get back to normal tonight in the Bronx.

“I can’t wait for the first pitch,” Jon explained. “Anything is possible at the start of every game. There could be a no-hitter or a perfect game. And there will always be great plays and clutch hits and big pitches.

“Winning is the most important thing,” he continued. “Losing knocks you down, but you can’t wait to go get ‘em the next day.”

Jon paused and smiled.

“That’s what life is all about.”

The team was on a roll so the off day didn’t exactly come at the right time. Of course, I don’t have to go out and play every day either.

That is a good point.

You’re right about that, Pete.
