You may want to call in sick and let boss know you’ll be in on Friday. Maybe keep the kids home from school to enjoy America’s Pastime with you. Let them know this will be part of their History lesson for the week. Share with them how special this day is. It only happens once a year. Day 1 of 162 – let’s roll!
Also…. as you can tell – Major League is one of my favorite movies.
