14 degrees this morning (feels like 7 degrees), humidity 76% No walk, still lingering effects of flu (or whatever I have) plus the cold.
Hopefully get a break from the cold weather today. Supposed to get up to the the low 40’s!
Yesterday was very cold, but since there wasn’t a lot of wind and the sun was out it wasn’t all that miserable. Miserable, but it could have been worse.
The effects of whatever I have continue to linger on in the way I suddenly feel tired. I especially need to get back to exercising, but I’m not quite ready. Probably the cold weather doesn’t help much either.
Watched a “Spring Training” baseball game and that helps to get my mind off of the cold weather and also, like the Robin, is a sign of Spring! I still haven’t gotten used to how the player move around so much, but that is just the way it is now. Or maybe it has always been that way and I just notice it each Spring.
I think one reason I like baseball is because it is a warm weather sport for the most part. While it doesn’t make any difference on games I watch on tv, we try go to to some of the local AAA team games the the time from April to mid-May is always difficult because it frequently gets too cold to sit and watch the games outside.
Of course, AAA teams are almost a complete change every year, as the team members change substantially, although there are always a few players we recognize. Of course we soon start following the new members.
AAA must be kind of a break point in the development cycle. If they don’t make it to the big leagues, the players seem to either play elsewhere and get into a new line of work. We noted many also are traded or sign on a free-agents with other teams, so the AAA must be a “make it or break it” year.
Of course, there is also the other side of AAA where “older” or maybe experienced is a better word, players are playing out their careers.
In a way, it may be a more compressed version of many careers, where there are break points where you more “up” (depending on how you define “up”), or stay where you or or move on to something else. Except it may take years at each stage where baseball it is one year or less.
I may be reading too much into what is essentially a game. On the other hand, you could argue that life is somewhat of a game, and there are just different versions of it.
Tuesday already. It is that time of the month when I get many new assignments, which is always interesting and challenging!
That’s it for now, Tuesday, March 5, 2019.
