It is the dog days of summer, and the sun with the way it sets has that August-y feel to it. Football has started, and we’re sad to admit we’ll be watching some of it tonight on the side with some baseball on here and there.
There’s a great night slate going on in baseball tonight, the Reds are in Los Angeles; the Nationals are in San Francisco, and the Yankees have already completed their game in Toronto. The pennant races are heating up.
Your 80’s song of the week that should be played on a ballpark loudspeaker near you is Starship. It’s a song that had to have been popular at the Kingdome in Seattle, right? This song makes me think of the blue walls and that emerald turf of the Kingdome. I miss the damn Kingdome.
The summer is basically gone, which is sad. We salute this greatest game on earth every Saturday. Thank you for your continued reading of Diamond Hoggers. Enjoy your Saturday everyone.
