Normally I consume a lot of news, but not so much lately. I haven’t really followed Russiagate, since it was obviously fake news. And every other story seemed to be about Comey/Rosenstein/Mueller/Clapper/Brennan and on and on and on. To fill my day I’ve been forced to start reading the Aubrey/Maturin novels for maybe the fourth time.
But in half an hour it’s first pitch in a Yankees-Orioles game, and for the next six months we can watch real men play a real, American game. A game that Babe Ruth played, and would be familiar with. Baseball is the sporting version of America First.
