Stream of Consciousness

I may or may not have warned you of my perfectionist tendencies and how this can often be just a very advanced form of procrastination. I have deceived myself into the idea that every post here should really  be some earth-shaking, riveting commentary on the (discussed for centuries) topic of baseball. I worry about things like research and grammar and spelling and sentence structure. Until today where you have found me between a practice, a game and my son’s umpiring another game that starts in fifteen minutes. My husband just said “Hon,we are going to leave in about five minutes…right after the New York Giants make their pick!” I think there is some sort of draft going on for some other sport of which I have little interest.

I have been pondering the irony of owning a baseball blog and then having so little time to write on it because I am either watching baseball, reading about baseball, cleaning baseball uniforms and equipment, packing for baseball, driving to baseball, picking up from baseball, waiting for baseball to start, waiting for baseball to end, analyzing what just happened in baseball and what might happen tomorrow in baseball.

Breathe. Or don’t breathe. Just drive. Just throw the stuff in the back. Just ignore the parent who yelled “Hey! Is blue your SON? That ball went FOUL!” (More on that later). Make note of ridiculous behaviors to document here at a later time. Forget grammar and writing and any form of sanity. I have to leave for the game.

    Ya gotta love all that you do. And I’m not playing to your thoughts. It’s a masterful ballet of precision and determination. As for the writing, nothing is perfect (I know well). It’s just the release and the fun of doing it……..

      “A masterful ballet of precision and determination.” I love that!!! You are right about the writing as well. Sometimes you just have to let it go…:)

    Writing baseball is just for those times when there is no baseball to be “do-ing.” I’m just hoping the rain doesn’t wash out my baseball weekend … so I can be do-ing, too. Enjoy!

      Yes! To think that not so long ago I was lamenting the offseason and there being no baseball to write about. Now there is wall-to-wall 24-7 baseball, but no time to write. 🙂 Hope the rain holds off! I wanted to check out the White Sox tomorrow but it sounds like it going to be a bad hair day at Camden Yards.
