Cleats by Bill Hinds for October 08, 2006
Jerome's Grandpa: When I was young, the World Series would be played in the first part of October - sometimes the end of September. But now, with playoffs, and Wild Cards, it's toward the end of October. Sometimes the games are played in northern cities, it gets cold. D'ya know what it feels like to hit a fastball when the temperature is 38 degrees? It feels like every bone in your hands has been shattered. That's why we need global warming. Jerome: I think I'm supposed to write about why it's bad. George: Grampa probably shouldn't help you with your homework until after baseball season is over, Jerome.
