Why I Love Baseball

About 7 years ago I was sitting in the local corner bar which happened to be owned by an Atlanta Flacon player and a patron and the manager were having a discussion about why baseball was the greatest game ever. As I had had a few I felt the need to interject. And so I responded,"You're both wrong. The beauty of baseball is its simplicity. Not every parent can skate or play football, but even a single mom in a wheelchair can play catch with her son."

The manager bought me a beer due to that response.
