Baseball is powerful for how it makes us feel. If we choose to focus on the gluttony...then we will look at it with shame and disbelief, and disgust. That post by ORG created the image of the game that we love, and our ability to share that image, at least for today, creates the hope that we all have for it. it helps us recall those times when we were oblivious to the truths of the business. The truths were always ugly, it is only that we didnt know that made it pure. Reading that restored that beauty I remember when I watched the Reds as a kid.

If someone will post that message there I might be able to get in print down the road. I could easily copy it, but I feel like someone who knew him should choose to do it. Thanks, and Merry Christmas.
