At Weeks End
Even though it was cloudy and a bit chilly Thursday, from my perspective it was one of the best days of the year. The major league baseball season began, with the Royals at home against the White Sox.
As long as I can remember, baseball has been my favorite pro sport. Im far from a rip-snorting fan of the NFL and I dont think Ive watched an NBA game since Jordan hung up his sneakers.
I tuned up for the Royals opener Thursday by watching a couple of replays of games from a year ago, and followed up with The Babe Ruth Story, the good one starring William Bendix. Then I settled in for the Royals and White Sox. (Drats! They lost big time.)
