rain delay in Chicago

baseball 1

I  am a huge baseball fan.  The Cubbies are one of my favorite teams but I am also a loyal Tampa Bay fan.  It’s a gentleman’s game.  The players appear to be having the time of their lives earning millions (yes, that’s American dollars) for just playing a game.  Opposing team players meet on the field before the game to hug, high five, fist bump and catch up on the latest news.  During the game when a batter gets on base the camera catches the runner and the baseman chit-chatting and joking. Yeah, this is sports at its finest.

Often times the rains move in, the playing field gets tarped, and players are huddling in the bullpens and dugouts to while away the time.  The following video captures the juvenile antics of the professional men during one such delay.

Years ago when I moved from Pennsylvania to Florida, Homosassa was a sleepy fishing village with just one traffic light. Today, unfortunately, it is a bustling fishing village with three traffic lights and a new WalMart. Being a retired trucker, I've seen the continental United States coast to coast and north to south hundreds of times and don't care to venture out of Florida again. Driving was a great adventure and a great job. We don't get too excited about things around here. Tourists enjoy the river and the manatees. Snowbirds come down to share their northern wisdom and spend their money. I sit on the front porch and watch the world go by.......and write.
