Tommy Lasorda is Really Really Wrong
At least, I hope he is. Deeply and fervently.

In a radio commercial today, encouraging people whose teams have already been eliminated from the playoffs to continue watching baseball because Baseball as a gestalt concept is more important than individual team loyalties (though I don't think he worded it in quite that way), he said, "I live for this. You live for this. The world lives for this."

"This" being, I believe, baseball.

In which case, perhaps his first sentence is true. I'll let him decide.

I'm darn certain that the second sentence is not true. Not now, not in the past, not in the future. I'm sure.

And if the third sentence is true... God help us all.
