17 Great Reasons For Taking Your Wife to a Major League Baseball Play-off Game
AHHH, BASEBALL IN ITS INFANCY
Today is Monday, Oct. 6, and it will not be long until we get to view that summer ritual, The World Series that thrills women and turns men into little boys again. Fans of both genders, ages, colors and ethnic backgrounds watch the two “best” Major League Baseball teams compete for seven games, and the one team who “sweeps,” the other team, are the World Champions. But many baseball fans secretly wish that the Series will go to the seventh-game I assume to honor Abner Doubleday, the man credited for creating this Great American Pastime.
Abner sure knew his stuff in the beginning when baseball was young and the pay was nominal. Legends like Ty Cobb, Babe Ruth, Dizzy Dean, Willie Mays and Pee Wee Reese made the summer grass grow taller when they trod the fields like gods in striped uniforms each weekend and some weekdays to make sure that their team would be in the running for winning the pennant.
LOTS TO ENJOY AT A PROFESSIONAL BASEBALL GAME
The screaming crowds with beer in paper cups, a cigar in their mouth, and wives holding their hats to keep them in place in gusty summer breezes are just two enduring descriptions that I hold dear about professional baseball. Hearing the legendary broadcasters, Mel Allen’s “How about that?” and Harry Caray’s “Holy cow,” was the vocal icing on the cake we all looked forward to having another slice until we couldn’t eat anymore until the next weekend.
Now that the play-off’s are about to begin, there is but one burning question to ask the guys, “Had you rather take your son or your wife to the baseball play-off’s?” Hordes of guys have already growled, “My son, you fool,” and I respect that. But let me share something with you. Here are . . .
