As a lawyer, this Ty Cobb must be thinking 'long game'; but for us in the bleachers watching the 'Mueller Probe' - we've had our fill of sore butts, Nachos & Beer Breath!

And, that's just my Brother-in-law!

No double about it; right now, America needs a 7th Inning Stretch or Cheerleaders!

Author, John Irving once wrote, "Baseball is a game with a lot of waiting; it's a game with increasingly heightened anticipation of increasingly limited action".

That's right - we don't go to a Baseball Game because we're in a hurry - we go to air-out our feet, learn new swear words & get heartburn!

But enough about me!

Catcher, Joe Garagiola so eloquently opined, "Baseball is drama with an endless run & ever-changing cast"!

And, that's exactly what Trump has given us: a cast of characters who he's either never met before, been a volunteer or took orders for Covfefe & Prune Danish!

The remainder are in the 'Fired/I Quit Revolving Door Program' first hired as Apprentice-Mannequins for show - then tossed aside whenever Trump decides to take his ball home!

I guess this Ty Cobb didn't remember what Baseball owner, Bill Veeck said, "Get 3 Strikes - even the best lawyer in the world can't get you off"!

But there Ty sits, twirling his Victorian gray mustache; deciding what false hope & happy talk he can placate childlike Trump with each day:

"Don't worry - you're no Nixon - he erased tapes"!

"And, you're no Bill Clinton either - so far, you haven't had any sex in the White House"!

Or..."You're so rich, you can run to a deserted island - but from what I me first!

That's all well & good - but I'm going with Baseball's lovable poet laureate, Yogi Berra; who always reminds us...

"It ain't over till it's over"!

It's impossible not to love this stuff:

"When you come to a fork in the road, take it.

You can observe a lot by just watching.

The future ain’t what it used to be.

You’ve got to be very careful if you don’t know where you are going, because you might not get there.

If the world were perfect, it wouldn’t be."

Poetry in prose is the best.
