"It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone." --- Bart Giamatti, on baseball
The Met announcers are very good straight ball/strike baseball announcers, but aren't good storytellers. On the other baseball team from New York: I thought Kay and Sterling were bad, until Sterling and Steiner became the announcers.
