Baseball and the Odyssey

Clark C. Griffith II's piece on the nobility of the greatest game on the planet is worth a read.

Griffith really gets the nobility of the game. I have been saying things like this for years.

Lets face is the game of civilization. You are asking a man to defend himself with a bat by knocking a lethal projectile away from himself, then expect him to drop the bat and go out into the field without protection into the waiting arms of 9 men who are dedicated to him not making it home.

That requires a civilized man.

I hate seeing kids these days playing soccer. It is the type of game they play in Commie countries. Plus soccer makes you gay. There I said it.
