remembering easier times

Just because it's both opening day (sorry, that's Opening Day) and April Fools Day, it should be noted that this still holds up remarkably well. Ball Four is not just a great baseball book, but a great American classic, and in my all time top five.

In my former life, I was mad for baseball, a fan of first the Cincinnati Reds, then the Jays for a time.

I can take or leave the game now, but I do miss the easy innocence of being a young fan.

Now for April Fools Day, one of the best hoaxes ever, courtesy of George Plimpton.

Ah, youth.
