The Doldrums of Summer
When I was growing up baseball was always my favorite game and the Yankees my favorite team. Baseball was where I started my fascination with statistics and eventually math. My brother and I would play Strat-o-Matic and keep the stats on sheets of paper. I've come a long way. Over the past several years basketball has edged its way up the ladder, long ago overtaking football. But now, with the Yankees hovering near unwatchable, another summer with LeBron James as Champion, and the Celtics entering another decade of despair the summer seems to be moving a bit slower than normal. After spending an inordinate amount of time on this blog for four months then watching the college basketball tournament and then the NBA playoffs I'm a little beside myself with no basketball. Mini hoops in the pool will have to do.
