Baseball On My Brain

Final thoughts – December 31, 2007

At the rate I’m going, this will most likely be my final post of the year. I won’t attempt a year in review, or any major statistical research breakthrough. I will just leave you with this:

I don’t feel the same feelings on the last day of December that I do on the last day of the baseball season. There is no downtime between December 31 and January 1, but there is a chasm between Game 162 and Game 1.

But regardless – I look forward to Day 1 and Game 1, because they are both filled with opportunity and possibility. You never know what will happen when you wake up – just like you never know what will happen when you show up to the ballpark. Maybe a no-hitter, maybe someone hitting four homers in a game. Maybe you’ll meet someone new and exciting, maybe you’ll see a site never seen before.

However – unlike a ballgame where you’re only a spectator (unless you want to get arrested), you have a lot more say and control as to the events of your own life. None of control everything – but when you realize just how much say you have in how you feel, how you act, and how your life plays out, it’s a pretty invigorating thing.

So look forward to 2008 with a fresh set of eyes – and jump on the field with reckless abandon. May you make solid contact with everything you swing at, and may you hit ’em where they ain’t.

Happy New Year!
