World Series Game 7!

That doesn’t happen every day. Here’s a bit of baseball from Heart of Barkness, the latest Chet and Bernie (a series which can be read in any order!).

A man in a cowboy hat stood behind the bar, his back to us, watching baseball on a tiny TV, no sound. Too bad: baseball sounds great, and the crack of bat on ball is off the charts.

“What’s the score?” Bernie said.

“Diamondbacks two, Dodgers one,” the man said, and turned to us. He had skin that reminded me of old leather and a huge, pure white mustache that curled way up on both cheeks. His hair was also pure white, and reached his shoulders. What else? He wore a red shirt and a bolo tie. In short, there was lots to look at this with this guy, all good.

“You’re a fan?” he said.

“Love the game,” Bernie said.

“They say it’s too slow.”

“I know.”

“But – “ The old man wagged his finger, twisted and bent. Right away, my tail got a funny feeling, like always when finger-wagging starts up. “ – they’re wrong,” he went on. “Everything else is too fast. You follow?”

“I do,” Bernie said.

    Patience, Rio. He is a great defensive outfielder. Still early days, or at least early in the game.

    Well, rats!

    Congrats to the Nationals on winning the series. If we had to lose, I’m glad it was to the Cinderella team. It was a series. Can’t believe the home team didn’t win a single game!

    We’ll be back!
