    Re: Fake to third, throw to first move now a balk.

    I used to hate it when pitchers did the fake throw thing and fans would holler "balk!". I'd grouse and mutter "it's not a damn balk, you morons".

    But then I found it to be a liberating thing to holler "balk" along with them. Kinda fun to be a moron baseball fan sometimes.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    I'm disturbed by how often I've found myself "liberated" and complaining with the rest of the heathens. It does feel good.
    When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.

    The umpires I gaurantee find it amusing too.

    Next to the scenery in the stands, stupid things the fans say in the stands is a common post game discussion.

    I can forgive a lot of things, but being accused of being a Cubs fan is past that line. It's like a Sicilian thing. You no longer exist to me.
