"Baseball!?!"
 
   Generally speaking, I hate baseball. I don't enjoy the sport at all. I don't enjoy playing it, I don't enjoy watching it (with the single exception of actually being at the stadium), and I don't like how it used to pre-empt the cartoons I used to watch on WGN.

That said, the baseball section of Wounded Rose was entertaining. I lost my focus once or twice on that section, but it isn't uncommon for me to have a trainwreck of thought every once in a while so I won't hold it against the story. I think what really let me connect with that section was how well the story conveyed the sense of being there (which as I noted above is the only time I've ever enjoyed baseball).

Definately good work.

Whoa, weird. I used to hate baseball (and still have a kind of comical grudge against the Cubs) for that exact reason. Our local cable company in West Boondock, Maine carried WGN, and back when I was little, Wrigley Field didn't have lights, so the Cubs were constantly displacing Superfriends. :)

That changed about five years ago, when I was in California. I was sitting around one afternoon in a very strange mental state, not wanting to go to work, surfing the dial, and came across a Giants game. Two hours later I'd finished thoroughly enjoying it, and felt very puzzled for some time. Since then I've been a fan of the game.

>Definately good work.

Thanks.
