More snapshots of my favorite things from this wonderful year, not counting rainbows on roses and whiskers on kittens:
SPORTS – Madison Bumgarner. Madison Bumgarner. Madison Bumgarner. ... and Clayton Kershaw.
The older I get, the more I love baseball. Of course, when you're a kid, baseball is boring – to watch and to play. Especially if you're pretty bad at baseball, as I was. (I was OK at basketball, etc., but eventually, in baseball, they had to put me in right field.)
But as one ages, one comes to appreciate the infinite beauty of baseball. It's a cliché around our house: "Every time you watch a baseball game, you see something new, something you've never seen before." And it's true. Try it the next time you watch a game. Guaranteed.
