05/02/2004: Thought for the Day:
Baseball is a grand sport not only because it rewards greatness, but because it punishes suckiness. As my friend Val once said, "If God reached down to Earth and picked out something at random, there’s a 99% chance it’d be a piece of shit." That is, most things in life aren't very good. Movies, novels, songs, restaurants, species, systems of government: in each of these endeavors, many fail and few succeed. It's the way of the world. And baseball is perhaps the only major sport to recognize this.
