It's a bummer that more games aren't on the radio, television, or internet. You would think in this day and age of media orgies that it would be possible to televise every game, even if it just meant sticking a camera behind homeplate and letting it run with only the sounds of the game for audio. Just give us a streaming internet feed or a webcam or something. We're all freezing our butts off and a lot of us are buried under snow (not me thank god) and it would be a sort of mental medicine if we could just get a look at a baseball game and some palm trees.
I'm not feeling all that great today and I was thinking about how there was a case of whooping cough in my six-year old cousin's class and the county health department had to send out letters to the parents of all the kids in the schools warning them about it. I thought pertussis was pretty much a dead disease because of vaccines. Turns out though, that it's making a comeback because kids aren't getting vaccinated as a result of the cost of health care in this country. Some parents simply can't afford it. The pols are right when they say we don't have a health care system in this country; we have a sick care system.
No, I'm not gonna get whooping cough because I had my DTPs all those years ago when medical care was for people instead of profits. But I do start whooping every time the Reds make a baserunning blunder. They've been caught stealing six of ten times this spring and have gotten thrown out trying to take an extra bag several other times. That was already a problem last year when we were actually talking about how we have the worst third base coach in the history of base coaches but now that we have all of these guys who are supposedly fast, Toothpick wants to run even more, which just means we're gonna be running ourselves out of games. That's Havoc!™
With all of these baserunning blunders, maybe it's a good thing we can't see the games.
