APRIL FOOL’S DAY in October

As normal, with large mug of
coffee in hand, I sat down at my computer to browse the sports news and
preview today’s match ups, in doing so I also glance through all types
of news and information cast upon me from the depths of the endless
sources known as the world wide web. Today was different, today I had to
check the calendar twice to make sure I hadn’t awoken in some freaky
episode of FlashForward. After reassuring myself it wasn’t April 1st, or
to some April Fool’s Day, in some other time zone I continued to check
out the news and reports.

What made me think it could
be April Fool’s Day

Was it that Charlie Manual
chose to use 2 perfectly good starters…

…NO…that could be
explained.

Was it that the new star of
the Red Birds, Matt Holliday chose the most inopportune moment to show,
something known as butter fingers in some children’s circles in
England…

…NO… that too could be
explained.

Maybe it was rumors that the

Cardinals
had been forced to make the signs around the ball park easier
to understand to prevent lawsuits from the visiting Dodgers and their
fans…

NO… that was
understandable.

It wasn’t even sports
related, it was the fact that staring me in the face on my opening web
page was the recipient of what has till now been a prestigious award,
known as the Nobel Peace Prize, I had to ask myself was this a joke, a
prank cast upon us by the AP, or is it some advance payment from
the Norwegian’s for something we will yet discover our government has
promised them. These and more questions I could not find answers too, in
an effort to see if this was to be an ongoing trend I found myself
checking out the Hollywood Awards to see if anything was changing, could
it be next year that this Nobel Prize winner would be receiving an
Oscar…

 

I just hope tomorrow puts me
back in October, where a state of limbo exists until the conclusion of
the MLB division series, till then we can only hope and pray something’s
will never happen
