which i mention only because my hometown team (philadelphia) has reached the series this year, apparently for the first time in over 25 years.

while i still think baseball is a wonderful game, i could not name a single player on either team right now. quite different from my childhood, when i had memorized the names, batting order and stats of every phillie on the roster.

the game of baseball has incarnations all around the world, and i think that speaks to the attractiveness, the very nature of the match itself. baseball literature, at least here in the u.s., is a rather large body of work; most of it pedestrian, some of it very lyrical and mesmerizing.

yet....i'm really not interested:sleeping:. is anybody else 'round here? how come? or not! speak:D.

Ditto. I remember a short period of time when I owned Baseball cards! Alas, being a San Francisco fan makes life tough these days.
