Saturday, 9 AM, Temescal Canyon Park; two middle-aged men strolling clutching large cups of Starbucks Coffee.
"You know, I'm turning 40! I need to get married."
"huh-huh, having a mid-life crisis eh?"
"I'm serious, it's just something I need to do."
I've been watching a lot of Sex and the City lately (yeah? so?), it's exactly what Charlotte announced before hurriedly marrying Trey.
I watched the Braves-Giants game Sunday night to peep Tim Lincecum get nasty. The Giants hosted a reunion of their 2000 NL West winning team. At one point during the game, Jeff Kent joined the broadcast booth. He donned a Lincecum wig, then explained, in a comment sure to infuriate stat-geeks, that he tells young players wherever he goes, "The Money lies in the R.B.I.'s."
Whether it's true or not, it's a beautiful sentence. Say it out loud, repeat it as if it were an 'ohm' like mantra. The Money Lies in the R.B.I.s-The Money Lies in the R.B.I.'s-The Money Lies in the R.B.I.'s"
post script: Jeff Kent earned more than $86 million in his career and finished with 1,518 R.B.I.'s. The probable Hall of Famer was traded for Carlos "Cabeza" Baerga and Alvaro Espinoza.
