Because they saw something I have yet to see –a perfect game.
I could jump on the angle of saying “this is why you need to go to the ballpark every day,or at least watch every game you can,”but I’m not going to –even though I feel that way,and truth be told it’s what drives me to the ballpark a lot of times. I simply don’t want to miss something great happening.
I know that going to every game isn’t practical for most people,so while in my utopia I would hope that would be the case,I know in this world it’s not practical.
But what is practical is to wake up and show up every day,because you never know what life has in store for you. Maybe it’s a perfect game in some other way —closing a big deal at work,your child’s first steps or first words,a great sunset,a delicious meal,the future love of your life –you just never know.
Sunday was sure a great day to be at the ballpark in Oakland. But everyday can be a great day to be wherever you are.
