Family Ball

I don't aspire to write a soccer-hating rant, like one that recently graced the internet (it's piece of comedic genius, in my opinion), but I do want to say a few words about baseball.

I don't know if there's something intrinsic about baseball that makes it appeal to so many Americans, but the history that it's had in this country has created a special affinity for the sport that reaches across generations. Because of this cross-generational appeal, I think baseball is super great for families. At the very least, my family had a fun time at tonight's San Diego Padres game.

Although it doesn't look like the Padres' tough luck seems to be letting up, I had a great time playing catch, cheering, and watching fireworks with aunts, uncles, cousins and other family.

Play ball!
