When Aaron Rodgers took a knee on Sunday night, allowing the game clock to tick away the final seconds of the Super Bowl, football season ended. I smiled to myself as the Packers began to celebrate for two reasons. The first: I like Aaron Rodgers a lot. As I’ve said to Moshe before, I think he got a lot of crap he shouldn’t have over the last few years and I was happy to see him win the big one; he’s also a joy to watch. Seriously, did he throw one non-spiral pass on Sunday night?
The second reason is much more meaningful. While we here at TYU–and you out there reading–believe that the baseball season never actually ends, the end of the Super Bowl signals the beginning of the new baseball year. Now that football is over, Spring Training is just a week away. Can you believe it? Yes it’s cliche and no I don’t care, but it seems like just a week ago that the World Series ended and we were poised to start the Hot Stove season. Despite our possible collective incredulity, months have passed and we are on the verge of a wonderful new season of baseball.
Personally, this is going to be a busy time in my life. I’m going to be taking over my cooperating teacher’s classes in two weeks, then I’m going to be job hunting, and hopefully getting a real job by September. In all of that time, the baseball season will still be going on. The baseball season will outlast this increasingly hectic period in my life and will be there as a crutch for me when things get too crazy. At the same time, baseball will just as crazy. But I won’t care. And neither will you.
I’ve said it countless times here on the Internet, but baseball is our safety net and security blanket. It is our sanctuary. It is our madness but at the same time, it is our cure. Let’s start the insanity.
