It Can’t Be Half Over

It is indeed a sad day in baseball for fans everywhere. For the Arizona Diamondbacks, today marks game number 80. This means that the season is now half over. I can’t believe it. It seems like only yesterday I was counting the days until spring training started and now I only have 37 more home games and 45 more road games until the season is over. This is nearly to much to comprehend. There must be something I can do to help prolong the season further. I first thought I could just roll back the clocks in the house to give me the impression that there was more baseball than there really was. That idea didn’t work as it only made me late for everything today. I nearly missed the gates opening at Bank One Ballpark today because I thought the game was starting later than it was. I then tried talking with the ticket agents at Bank One Ballpark to determine what the feasibility would be of adding a few more games at the end of the season just so we would have something to do from the third of October until February 17. That suggestion was met with a lot of blank stares and people shaking their heads. Then I thought that if we had a few rain outs at Bank One Ballpark, there would be make up dates that may prolong the season. I realized that would probably not be possible since we have a retractable roof that would close before the field would get wet enough to call the game. I’m afraid there isn’t a lot I can do other than try to enjoy what baseball I have left and pray that the Diamondbacks will make the play-offs so that I will at least get a few more games tacked onto the end of the season.
