I'm a gigantic baseball fan, and that is a result of watching Ken Burns's 1994 documentary. It's out on DVD, and Burns is working on a new installment for the series [to air on PBS next year]. Burns shined a light on baseball the game, as opposed to baseball the sport. If you look at baseball as a sport you can get a bit frustrated with its pace. But as a game, it moves plenty fast. I listen to the radio at Dodger Stadium every single game. I've got the stupid headphones on, got the binoculars. I haven't started scoring, but that's coming. Yeah, I'm 95 years old.
