A MESSAGE FROM BETTER OFF RED…
Today is as good a day as any to lose yourself in the game, to take your mind off real-life events and to lean on baseball as if it’s a close friend. I tweeted earlier that I’m taking a break today in acknowledging confrontational tweets/comments/complaints about baseball. It just doesn’t seem appropriate today to debate the lineup, the knee “conspiracy theory,” or any frivolous topic pertaining to a game that is meant to be enjoyed.
Tragedy affects many people in many different ways. In light of what happened late last night/earlier this morning in Colorado, let’s show a little extra respect to one another today. Remind each other that humanity is still decent and people are still loving. Sure, it’s sad that it takes something horrible to happen in order “to put things into perspective”, but if we can, let’s please try to do something postive to counteract the negative. If you’re reading this, we can all start with baseball.
Expect good news
