  • We head to the games together and you want to look over the wall. Just look. Watching the players warm up, you are so intrigued with their uniforms, ball gloves, the click-click-click of their cleats. You look over at the foul line and up to the foul pole, asking me why it is painted yellow. Perhaps this game is accessible to you, perhaps you only like it because I do. Perhaps it's all I've shown you - limiting you in perspective. Perhaps.

    Enjoy the game and always watch for the high-heat. It'll get you every time.
