Why I Don’t Go to Ball Games

I’m in Roan Mountain this week, resting and looking into some repairs needed on the old house.  In the meantime, here’s something you might identify with–why we don’t go to ball games:

  1. Every time I go, they ask me for money.
  2. The people I sit by aren’t very friendly.
  3. The seats are too hard and uncomfortable.
  4. The coach never comes to call on me.
  5. The referees make decisions I don’t agree with.
  6. Some games go into overtime, and I’m late getting home.
  7. The band usually plays some numbers I’ve never hear before.
  8. My parents took me to too many games when I was growing up.
  9. My kids need to make their own decisions about which sports to follow.

No, this isn’t original with me; I only wish it were.   It’s anonymous, but sadly true to form.
