In Finland the game called baseball is quite different, but L2 is something I can see!

Thanks, Ri?ardas, tikkis, andrew. I swear no reference to the Roger Clemens situation is intended or should be inferred, as they say in legalese.

They're sitting atop the water heater in the garage. Thank you, Bill. You've reminded me to get them down and introduce her to the magical scent of linseed oil.

I heard the crack of bats two days ago at the local high school. Not much longer.

to answer your question, bill, only a few enthusiasts play baseball in slovenia, otherwise it's almost unknown.

An eloquent image, Josh.

Thanks for the observation, Pat. When does spring training begin? Or has it already?

And thanks for your response, polona.
