Playing Field Dangers
Eventually my caller started talking about his kids. I like stories about people's kids. One of his kids, a girl named Alex, played some ball in the deep south of America this past summer.
"She was trying to get set in the batter's box when the umpire started giving her a hard time about her being a Canadian. 'I hear you have to chase the polar bears off the diamond before you can play up there,' he said to her. Alex stepped out, spit, and talked back to the fat fuck.
"'That's funny,' she told him, 'I heard up in Canada that you have to chase the motherfucking Bible-thumpers off the field before you can play down here.'"
