The title always seemed like the most reasonable baseball advice I ever heard. Since I was a lousy ballplayer, maybe I can apply that advice to a blog.

    Ruminations on Opening Day at SoxFest

    I love it when you ruminate! Thanks for another outstanding blog entry which perfectly captures the Palmer House/SoxFest experience. The Palmer House Empire Room is truly magnificent and I will never get tired of visiting a place that makes me feel like royalty. It was great to see you, meet your son, and talk White sox baseball with both of you this past Saturday.

    If It's Snowing, It Must Be Time For SoxFest

    Thanks for the comments, everyone. The big news, of course, is that Bud Selig is supposed to be at SoxFest on Friday. We'll fasten our seatbelts as we hear Bud's searing insight on such vital matters as the need to add six or eight more rounds of playoffs.

    Fantastic new post! And I really like that word prattle, btw.

    Iím so glad to hear that you will be attending Soxfest with your son and I hope you both have a wonderful weekend!

    Baseball on Ice

    It was rough sitting in the outfield grandstand those nights. Fortunately I didn't have to deal with a cold like you did. They should sell hot chicken soup along with the coffee -- if that had been available you could've warmed yourself and cured your cold at the same time!

    Thanks for the kind words about the TBGRs. Just trying to put some lipstick on a pig, given the way the Sox have played this season. Here's hoping as the season progresses we'll have reasons to use grandiloquent prose to describe our heroes magnificent performances!

    But if we keep waiting for hits with runners in scoring position, maybe not.

    Baseball on Ice

    Seriously, GREAT blog post! I know exactly how you felt on April 25. I wore a Sox polo and at the very last second before walking out of the house, I grabbed my fleece Sox hoodie and threw it in my bag "just in case." Fortunately, I'd decided to change into jeans and gym shoes from shorts and flops before leaving, too!

    I got to the ballpark earlier than my friend with the tickets, so I went over to Grandstand for awhile. It was still comfortable and the hoodie was not needed. I came out of Grandstand and the conditions were the same. I got out of my car on 33rd St. to meet up with my friend when she got down to the ballpark about 15 minutes later and was stunned at how quickly and sharply the temperature had dropped.

    I had gotten a horrible cold a few days before after getting back from Florida and felt lousy that day, so I lasted two innings in the seats. Feeling as lousy as I did, I knew the last place for me was out in the damp, cold, windy weather. I watched the rest of the game on a little LCD TV by the picnic tables on the concourse near Section 110 because it was out of the elements none of us were prepared for. It was pretty anticlimactic, as I missed Alexei's slam "in person," but at least I wasn't totally frozen.

    To warm weather for our beloved baseball!

    BTW, your TBGRs have been awesome! Nice work!

    Theaters and Ballparks

    "Vibe" is really the only word that fits. Ballparks and theaters do that to me, too. No matter how decrepit the structures might be, seeing a ballpark or a theater being torn down is a truly sad sight: it snuffs out the vibe. For that reason I soak in as much of the experience as I can when I'm at a ballgame or a show.

    Theaters and Ballparks

    As a theatre person, I can vouch for what your performer friends said about the theater. There is just this vibe that you feel being in any theater, be it backstage, onstage, or in the house.
