The reason I'm not watching Major League Baseball isn't because of the political reason itself rather because everyone is making it political. President Biden should be ashamed of himself in playing partisan politics, MLB should be ashamed of themselves for aligning themselves to one side and the American people should be ashamed of themselves in being so divided. I made a pack with myself that I will not watch or listen to any Detroit Tigers baseball game this year. Baseball should be above politics as the game itself is simplicity were anyone can play the game. Players today only care for money and adding politics into the game just ruins it for me. Baseball in its early days did have a racism problem, but they have over come major hurdles to make it where anyone can play the game or watch the game. Sure there are racists still out there, but deep in my heart 99 percent of Americans do NOT see color, no the see fellow Americans.
I normally don't share my dreams, but this dream was a nice though a bittersweet dream. I was sitting at a dining room table in a restaurant ordering breakfast contemplating what side dish to have with my omelette. My mom said "Why don't you have the bacon". Bacon was on my mom's favorites and as she was saying this I look around the place. I notice my father and sister there as well, we were all young again and in our Sunday clothes. Then I also notice that we were having breakfast at the Burroughs Farms restaurant (clubhouse?). I won't bore you with the rest of the dream as it took the usual weird turn that dreams normally do.
It was like my mother was saying to me to keep on living a good clean life and don't worry about things you can not control. I bet she is reserving a spot for all of us (well trying for reserve a spot for me) and that she is being rewarded for the good life that she had while she was alive. I am sure we all have fond memories of Burroughs Farms and other places that we have been to that we reach back to when things get tough or we get a little depressed. It's nice to have these memories especially in troubling times. One of my favorite quotes from the movie "Starman" sums it up really nicely in my opinion.
"Shall I tell you what I find beautiful about you? You are at your very best when things are worst
Well, it's hard to believe that it is the end of the month. There is a cold spell that will be covering Michigan the next couple of days then it will really start to warm up (I hope). The Detroit Tigers start the baseball season tomorrow and the weather at game time is only going to be 34F.
They say it's the coldest opening day in 36 years and all I know is the lucky fans that are able to attend the game are not going to be so lucky. I might watch the game, but I probably won't as I really haven't been into sports this year. I am trying to walk at least 3 miles a day, but had to take a break as I have a big old blister on my right foot that broke open yesterday. It was killing me last night and didn't feel all that great today, so I did to take a day off. I really need to find better shoes, but I am having a hard time find my size.
One more week and I get my second Covid-19 vaccine shot. I will be glad when that is over with, but we all still need to be careful as there are still plenty of people that need to get vaccinated. I just hope there are not too many people who decide not to get it, but I think most will.
