Maybe Ron Can Lend Me A Rug
by Phil Bencomo
You see, there is frustration, and then there is Frustration. It's like the difference between trying to close the door of a too-stuffed closet, and watching a four-run lead dissipate at the cry of "Ball Four!"
They're both on the list of Things That Frustrate, but gosh darn it, for all the subtle torture of that closet door, whispering, if you listen closely, snide remarks about your very manhood, it's nowhere near the top of the list.
It's games like tonight's that find their way to the top, right alongside poor fundamental play and general incompetence. That game was just so winnable ... c'mon Michael ... just one strike ... please?
Sigh... Excuse me while I pull the rest of my hair out. Might as well finish the job.
