“A hot dog at the ballgame beats roast beef at the Ritz.” Humphrey Bogart
Jon Miller, my favorite bard of baseball, recently used the words egregious, preposterous, cerulean, prodigious, and greensward whilst painting verbal pictures of our San Francisco Giants sweeping the Rockies and the Snakes, and making history as they did so. Jon revealed today during a lopsided loss to the Cubs, that no team in the long history of baseball had ever won six home games in a row in which they scored less than four runs in any of those six games. I agree that isn’t nearly as important as the ongoing meltdowns of the Fukushima nuclear power plants, but it does prove we have some mighty impressive pitching.
Sometimes Jon will quote the Bard (Shakespeare) himself. “Fair is foul, and foul is fair: Hover through the fog…” might have been written
