Wednesday Reading

1 Chronicles 17-20.

We're down to 5 days until baseball season starts. I'm so excited about today's baseball countdown video. I've haven't seen this broadcast since the original airing 27 years ago. Until today. Joe Garagiola was NBC's play by play man then.

I remember this vividly, as I was a sophomore in college and was sitting in my parents living room watching the game with them. The game turned bleak in the 6th, when Milwaukee took a 3-1 lead. But a 3 run rally in the bottom of the 6th, followed by 2 more runs in the 8th set the scene for today's video. The thing I didn't remember was how many pitches it took to finally get Gorman Thomas. I felt the tension in the air just watching it.
