Shaving, Skeet, Snow, and Baseball


First, I think I know why old men grow idiotic white beards that catch egg yolk, and other stuff.  When I shave these days, I have to wear my reading glasses and use a magnifying mirror to be certain that I don’t miss any spots.  Having a beard, even with dried egg yolk, would simplify my life.

Second, did every one see that picture of Obama skeet shooting?  Yep, I now believe that Obama is completely in favor of the Second Amendment.  Or, maybe the picture was a dandy little photoshopped item?  Shit.  Even if he really was shooting a shotgun at pieces of clay, it’s a hunting exercise, and the Second Amendment has more to do with resisting tyranny than shooting clay pigeons.  Or so I’ve been told.

Next, it’s still snowing in Northeast Ohio.  Damn cold, too.  What, exactly, has happened to global warming?  Al Gore really needs to offer a reasonable explanation.

Finally, pitchers and catchers report for Spring Training on February 12th.  There’s lots of houses where the middle of February is celebrated with hearts, flowers, cards, chocolates, and marriage proposals.  But here, it’s a time of hot dogs, glove oil, and reminiscing about past heroic baseball campaigns.  Oh, and the idea that every team has an equal chance of attaining the post season again.  The Spring renewal and all that.  One more year in the sun................Thank God for baseball season.
