    I HIGHLY recommend LLWS. Six innings, great baseball.

    Recovering my interest in baseball is something I cheerfully credit to my ex-wife, who craftily engaged my wargaming side with a Smithsonian article about Rotisserie baseball. From that, it was a short step to Bill James, and the next thing I knew we were taking the kids out to Twins games at the Metrodome and Saints games at Midway Stadium, and there was no turning back. There are seasons where I haven’t paid as much attention to the game due to personal tsuris, but for the most part I have remained attentive to the Twins-and now, the Nationals. It’s been good for me.

    Welcome back. The everydayness of baseball is one of its great strengths. There’s always a game on in the summer. But since there is, we’re spared the hype of other sports which play less frequently.
