Cooperstown: (n) location of the Baseball Hall of Fame
Never was a big baseball fan.
The point should be made that I never was a little baseball fan.
But I admire baseball.
Baseball is a sport that I would have come up with to justify being involved in athletics without actually breaking a sweat very often.
It offers the perfect balance of exercise: one minute of exertion for five minutes of sitting, standing, contemplating, waiting and practice-swinging the bat.
It has all the other elements that other sports possess. I’m talking about uniforms, equipment, scoring, players, cheerleaders, hot dogs, peanuts and cracker jacks.
But if, for some reason, you forgot to show up for spring training, or your gym equipment broke down over the winter, you could still appear and participate in the game.
It truly is the Great American Pastime.
And for those who made it to Cooperstown, to the Hall of Fame, they have taught us well:
The best way to pass time is to do as little as possible.
