"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
If anyone can get me a line (outside of eBay) on a St. Pete Parrots (ACHL) jersey or jersey crest, let me know. The team folded halfway through its debut season, and jerseys and crests are getting pretty damned hard to find.
