Baseball On My Brain


Come on over! We’re entertaining!

If you’re around sports writing enough, you’ll find that there’s only so many creative ways to say that one team is playing another. The one that I read tonight that I’ve read time and time before is “the Mariners entertain the Padres at Safeco Field this weekend.”

They entertain them? Really?

Like, we’ll break out the barbeque, put on some Dean Martin albums and dance?

Or we’ll put the Wii on the big screen and have a MarioKart tournament?

Sometimes…just sometimes…the best way to say something is to just say it, regardless of how many times it’s been said before.

I feel better.
