I don't know why I like baseball so much. I didn't play it. I have no plans to get my kids in to it. I think it's basically boring until October. In recent years I have been shaken by the rampant performance enhancing drug scandals that range the whole of the 90's and in to the early years of this decade. Still, I love baseball, especially in October. There's nothing like baseball in October.
I grew up watching the Yankees. Watching baseball some how brings me back to my childhood, I guess that's why I like it so much.
Tonight I am watching an excellent, newly released, Ken Burns special on baseball. I'm not done watching it, but so far it's just superb. Check it out. Pay particular attention to the great segment on the 1996-2000 Yankees!
