'Tis the Season to Be Jolly for This Baseball Junkie

I wait until about 6 p.m., then I jump in my car and head for the crowded freeway. I drive until I get to a busy off-ramp. After a long wait I'm on a surface street and looking for a crowded parking lot at a shopping center. After driving around the parking lot for 15 minutes, I finally find a spot to park. I then walk about half a mile to a hot dog stand, and after waiting in line for a long time, I get my hot dog and find a place to sit down. After I finish eating, I stand up and sing the national anthem, then I scream my lungs out.

You probably think I am crazy. Not really, I'm only in spring training for the baseball season. Next week, my program includes getting showered with beer.
