I write from the living room of my favorite Democrat, Rob. Rob and I have been friends for 26 years, and we have had season tickets to UVA Football together for many years.
The World Series is on, and I'm watching it--which may come as a surprise to those who know how little regard I have for the game of baseball. Truth is, World Series baseball is very different from regular season (yawn) baseball--and every pitch seems to matter. I've enjoyed the first two games quite a bit.
It's hard to figure out who to pull for. The Phillies are an obvious choice, as I grew up in South Jersey, and they are sort of a home town team. They are also a scrappy hard-working bunch, and there's a lot there to like.
But damn--Derek Jeter looks like he LOVES the game. I don't think I've ever seen anyone appear to have as much fun at work as he does. I'm also a fan of A-Rod--who I'd like to see win a World Series someday. But just not this year.
It's kind of nice to actually enjoy watching baseball again.
It's a MAD, MAD, MAD, MAD World...
