Spin a cap and have a day kid. Lil bingles get you to heaven. And other baseball jargon. Nothin’ but net, shooters keep shooting and basketball mumbo-jumbo. Defense always win championships and you always feed the hot hand. Try going an entire day avoiding sports metaphors and phrasing- it is nearly impossible. Sports has bled through into our everyday culture and I couldn’t be more pleased.
I love talking sports. To be fair, I like talking in general- sports, Batman, movies- talking is a great past time.
But people, for whatever reasons, get tired of hearing a person talk. This is why the internet was invented. So we don’t have to listen to people like me, full of ideas, talk all the time.
This blog started as a fantasy baseball musing-space, but it’s more now. I’m a sherpa wandering up the mountain of useless sports thinking floating around in my considerable brain.
