Room for the genuine

The gloom that fell over my feeble mind from the horrible display of baseball ineptitude put on by the Cubs last night has left me, for I am sitting in the sunshine bathing my balcony as I write this.  And the Cards lost last night too.  The Cubs remain only two games out.

My mind wanders to the awesome 1963 World Series pitching performance of the Dodgers’ Koufax, Podres, and Drysdale against the Yankees.  They shut them down in four straight games.  The series ended so quickly most people could not believe it.  Koufax and Drysdale were almost unbeatable in those early Sixties years.  The morning after they pitched I nearly memorized the boxscore of their games and newspaper reports of their triumphs.

Even when most days seem like days of failure and loss, we find something genuine in the exploits of those who reach almost absolute perfection, then triumph.
