Quotes to Chew On

I haven't "vented my soul" much lately, so here's some random thoughts for your blog viewing pleasure.

From Darren Relyea's blog: "Three things America will be known for 2,000 years from now when they study this civilization: the Constitution, jazz, and baseball." -Gerald Early

I like this quote a lot. Baseball is still the greatest game, but it would take me pages to share my thoughts on that. (Opening Day is less than three weeks away. Anybody want to celebrate it with me?) Thanks to Jeremy for helping me fall in love with jazz. More often than ever, I find myself chilling out to 91.5 FM and pretending to be more refined and classy than I really am. And, though I wouldn't say I'm in love with the Constitution, being in law school has made me come to understand why it was included in this quote. In addition, this would be as good a time as any to confess that I now watch "America & the Courts" on C-Span most every Saturday.

One other quote, this one comes from the Apex website's randomly generated quotes: "If you're going through hell, keep going."

I wouldn't say I'm going through hell right now, but that advice comes in handy from time to time.

Greg, I followed your link to Dave Letterman's site. They're auditioning for stupid human tricks in Vegas this month. Any Apexers trying out?

I will celebrate the beginning of the Red Sox's second world series season. I only wish it was the Jays.

I will celebrate opening day with you. Your house? my house? or does a pub strike you better?

jack kerouac and his brother invented a game of baseball that is played using a deck of cards, when they were kids theylaid on the floor and played it on rainy days. he descrides the last couple innings of one of his games which reads like an actual play-by-play this was a game he was playing from his skagit county,WA fire tower in complete isolation for several months, and he claims baseball to be one of our best expressions of freedom... inever could quite relate to this sentiment until i listened to the end of a UT ballgame on the radio the other night. Up until that point it never clicked, but hearing all the details described for me i could see all the details which actually made it exciting. i guess i also found a soft spot in my heart for baseball.
