San Francisco Giants game

You may not agree, but should you care to know: there is no sporting event I enjoy more than a baseball game. 

In my stadium seat, I think of the collective hours the men on the field have spent dreaming, practicing, striking out, and stepping back up the plate.

Supposedly, Babe Ruth once said, β€œit's hard to beat a person who never gives up.”

And so I commit to finishing the soft pretzel in my hand.

Athletes model perseverance better than most.
