World Series Fever!
The boys of summer–if you are lucky enough to live in a winning baseball town like I do (both this year and last!)–become the heroes of fall.
Thanks to tremendous connections, I was fortunate enough to attend three World Series games last year, two American League Championship games this year and now, as the only other team in history next to the New York Yankees, to go to back-to-back World Series, my adopted baseball team, The Texas Rangers, is glory bound.
You know (picture me starting to wax philosophic), baseball is a great analogy for life.
But we won’t go there! What we will do, is treat you to five groovy baseball/life quotes for your Mindful Monday. I sincerely hope you find them useful in your weekly lineup. Oh, and GO RANGERS!
When they start the game, they don’t yell, “Work ball.” They say, “Play ball.”
Progress always involves risks. You can’t steal second base and keep your foot on first.
~Frederick B. Wilcox
Baseball is an allegorical play about America, a poetic, complex, and subtle play of courage, fear, good luck, mistakes, patience about fate, and sober self-esteem.
Life will always throw you curves, just keep fouling them off… the right pitch will come, but when it does, be prepared to run the bases.
And of course:
It ain’t over till it’s over.
