Even as we are all trying to readjust our internal clocks, pre-season baseball has started and the games are broadcast at all hours. Thank goodness for DVR, TiVo or whatever lets you record the games. My bride is in mourning because one of her favorite players, Hunter Pence, got his arm broken in a game last week. Best wishes for a speedy recovery! Baseball is one the great stress relievers in my life. It is soothing to listen to the commentators, watch the games, discuss strategy and injuries, and remember past games and players. With all that is going on in the world (like Boko Haram merging with Isis, the never-ending scandals, etc.) it is good to have something that lets me unwind just for a little while. ~ Michael S.
