The first beach ball makes its way onto the field here at Dodger Stadium… first of about a thousand.

Certainly in the top five of my bucket list is to catch a beach ball at a game and deflate it in front of everybody.

You may glory in a team triumphant, but you fall in love with a team in defeat. Losing after great striving is the story of man, who was born to sorrow, whose sweetest songs tell of saddest thought, and who, if he is a hero, does nothing in life as becomingly as leaving it.

After my first season of following baseball, I am beginning to understand why this sport teaches its fans not to cheer for their team to win, but to cheer for them not to lose. While losing is certainly devastating, winning staves off that devastation and quietly builds hope that maybe the team will continue not to lose, all the way until it wins. 
Granted, Magic Johnson nearly liquidated his solid-gold sex island in a vain effort to win — and didn’t — but then what is a season of baseball but another chance to build hope that we’ll continue to not lose some more next year? 
Have a great postseason, San Francisco! Don’t lose!
Especially to the Yankees.
