My horoscope today, as published by Holiday Mathis in the Star Ledger, says:
"Seriousness is (seriously) overrated. What you need is a bit of ridiculousness to put everything back in the proper perspective. Listen to the score from a musical, or dance around in your funny-foot pajamas."
I've never seen anything as ridiculous as these kill-the-ump letters, especially the one yelling at ME for writing the article that appeared five years ago. You'd think these fanatical fans could read a by-line. I guess this must be what they mean by baseball fever, huh?
Anyway, who knew there were more than a half-dozen St. Louis fans out there? The last time I saw that team play Bob Gibson was pitching and they beat the Yanks for the series in the mid-sixties.
