Beginning to watch Nationals’ baseball games again. I was never a baseball fan. But last summer, in preparation for a surgery, I got an inner nudge to sit down and watch Steven Strassburg pitch. I’d been reading about what a phenomenal young man and pitcher he was, and this certainly proved to be true when he pitched his first game and posted 14 strikeouts! I was hooked! It was a great way to heal from the surgery, in my new recliner, watching the games in high def.
Tonight, though, the Nats threw away a game they were winning. I decided that with over 160 games in a season I could choose to stop watching in the 8th inning, and did so. I’ve also been putting off posting in this blog and since I have done that so often with my writing goals over the years, I want to break this habit once and for all.
Tomorrow there will be another Nats game.
