Bats in the Belfry
Fire Jim Tracy now. While you're at it Mr. Littlefield and Mr. McClatchy, fire yourselves and give Mark Cuban a shot.
All apologies to those who have no idea what the hell I was just talking about. Call it a case of a frustrated fan's notes, with more apologies to Frederick Exley.
But that makes a swell transition to today's musical treats.
Tonight's the Baseball All Star Game and all it's pomp, ceremony, and self-importance. But I'm still a sucker for it. What can I say? It's a bunch of guys standing around with big sticks, playing with their balls. Wholesome family entertainment. Pills and topical creams included.
So, yes, more baseball songs. I'm not stalling one little bit. This goes out to my good pal Paul, who's originally from Philadelphia, another Pennsylvania city mired in Major League woe. And, of course, props to the greatest baseball player of all, Charlie Brown.
