Debate or World Series

By Michael October 28, 2015 0

I can’t believe that I am missing the most competitive World Series in many years  to watch the Republican Debate. There has to be something wrong with this picture. I am an admitted baseball fanatic and a political junkie, so something had to give.

My grandfather Charles, sat me in a kids rocking chair, next to his rocker, in 1955 to watch Don Larsen pitch the first and only perfect game in World Series history. I’ve been hooked on baseball’s fall classic every since then. I cut my political teeth in the early 1950’s listening to my extended family debate whether President Harry Truman should have allowed General Douglas MacArthur to pursue the Chinese into the mainland several years after Truman and MacArthur were off the political landscape. That’s how serious politics was around the Harvey farm. read more
