Bye, Bye, Basketball - Hello Baseball
I'll miss this little group. Come August, when the nights are wet with sweat and the crickets sing their summer song...and the sun sets over the buildings while diners sip wine at an outdoor cafe in Paris,and college basketball is so far, far away, I'll long for early- to mid-March,picking teams based on prettiest uniform or coolest name. And rooting for men I'll only know for one cold night. And paying Chan a third of the total prize money.
Some gave all. All gave some. To those who prospered financially from this affair, I congratulate you. To the rest of us, well, we have been paid in manna from heaven, fulfilled spiritually, regardless of our personal point total.
Thank you all. And farewell.
touching, isn't it?
