Thank God For Baseball

Thank God for baseball especially when a Nick Swisher steps up to the plate in the tenth inning with the bases loaded, two outs, the count 1-2, and the score Angels 3 - Indians 1. With a swing of his bat, the ball sails out to right field over the fence. Grand Slam!!!! Indians win! A walk off win! For a few brief minutes all the ills surrounding us are forgotten. All is well with life. Once the cheering ends and the fans exit the field, reality returns. There are problems to be dealt with. Problems which strive to make baseball irrelevant. Problems which have no chance of being cleared by a Grand Slam. They will be there tomorrow. So will the boys of summer when again for a few hours all will be well with the world, at least in the ball park. Thank God for baseball.
