Monkey See, Monkey Do

I write quite a bit about alcohol.  In my mind it’s natural because baseball is inextricably linked with drinking and I also tend to write quite a bit about baseball.  Add in the politics which sometimes drives me to drink and you can see how I end up on this topic quite often.

    Baseball and drinking have always gone hand-in-hand. More than once I have seen adult drinking games going on when a certain now fired ESPN baseball broadcaster was throwing out supperlatives about the “good old days”.
