shep. bought herself a Sigma 70-300mm lens, and it’s kind of glorious. Way more glorious than last night’s game, alas.
I love the baseball team fiercely and without reserve, mostly for themselves but in a small part because everyone loves the basketball team and Butch Davis can sell football tickets for $60 a pop but no one but their Mamas loves the baseball team like that so someone else should, and my heart aches for them this season. It is an unsurprising season for a young and inexperienced team replacing a huge number of crucial parts; I am neither shocked nor disappointed by their season to date, but I am disappointed for them, my heart hurts for them, and it is almost too hard to watch them struggle.
Almost, but not quite; and so, today, again. Even in the cold and gloom, because we love them.
Unrelatedly: yesterday I put together a Twitter list of the accounts of 8 of 10 minor league baseball teams in North Carolina, in case you’re into finding who’s giving away what here in the NC. I couldn’t find accounts for the Greensboro Grasshoppers or the Burlington Royals, but if someone knows they have them, let me know and I’ll add them.
