--Jimmy Dugan (Tom Hanks) in "A League of Their Own"
Thursday was our first league play night at Auburn Hills Golf Course. It was a lovely cool evening with calm wind, quite unusual for the beginning of league season. I was treated to riding with a new member, a young woman who plays a lot, and it is quite a joy to watch her swing the golf club. We had the usual "get to know you" chatter. I was wearing my Cubs visor, and she asked if I had been to a game at Wrigley Field. It turns out that she is just as crazed about baseball as I am, only her team is the Boston Red Sox. She said she took off work on March 30 because of Opening Day. She said, "It's like Christmas to me." I feel the same way! We were off and running on "America's pastime." What a treat to meet someone so enthusiastic about golf AND baseball!
There IS crying in baseball--I can guarantee it all over Cubs nation after they won the World Series on November 2, 2016.
Hope springs eternal every April! Go, Cubs!
