I know many of you enjoy the start of football season. It conjures thoughts of fall: crisp air, sweaters, chili and Sundays with friends, huddled around the TV.
I love those things, too, but I feel like September baseball gets lost in the fray. It’s the perfect time of year for casual fans to get excited. You have a clearer sense of who’s good and who’s not, plus you jump into the mix just as the pennant races really heat up. Every game counts! And you can eat chili while you watch! And wear a sweater!
So if your team is, say, the Eagles and you’ve already given up on the season, give baseball a try. A friend can tell you about the players. It’ll be a lot of fun, even for diehard football fans. Trust me. Give it a chance. You just might like it.
