As his millions of dedicated readers know, The Lion is no fan of baseball, especially the professional game, which he regards as overhyped, narcissistic, and egotistic. And boring.
But for several days now The Lion has been watching, avidly, the Women’s College World Series of fast-pitch softball. Now that’s exciting baseball. Emotional and emotionally committed. Seriously skilled. Real tension. Real teams and not very much ego. Not a prima donna in the bunch.
Washington beat Florida in two games for the championship, and damn, but it was great! All the drama a person could want. Can’t wait till next year.
