Baseball and life it’s own self

I am a Red Sox fan and even I love this show. Jay and Will get to the power of baseball over our souls... with great humor, exasperation and insight.

Optimism

No sport breeds optimism like baseball. Flushing Transit Authority fills your ears with spring breeze, crackling peanut shells & the smell of stale beer. And optimism.
