I believe it was Bart Giamatti who said that baseball breaks your heart. I’ve been a Braves fan since my family moved to Georgia in 1980 when I was 10 years old. Every year … every single damn year … except for 1995 … the team and the game they play has broken my heart.
If they are going to break my heart again this year, I wish they’d wait for late October.
(And no, I didn’t cry myself to sleep last night, although I was tempted. I will be staying away from the ballpark today.)
