Frozen Out


Twenty eight degrees was too cold to have a baseball game.
The league postponed the Rockies playoff game for a day to warm up.

My good friend Bill had season tickets a few years ago.
He generously took Tom and I to the early spring games.
Nice of him. Bill is a good guy.

His generosity warmed my heart but not my feet and toes
as the wind whipped around third base up to where we were sitting.

I guess that is why you need a passion for the game
to warm you up as the boys of summer
are playing in the arctic cold of spring in Denver.
