September 1, 2007
It seems like only yesterday that I was counting down the days to when the 2007 baseball season would begin. Now I find myself involved in another countdown. This time I am counting down the number of games remaining in the regular season. It’s funny that for the first countdown I was eager with anticipation being able to hardly wait for baseball season to arrive. Now though I find my enthusiasm much lower as each game played means I am one step closer to the off-season where I have to try and survive without baseball to occupy my time. But this year is slightly different. Instead of just playing out the season the Arizona Diamondbacks have an opportunity to make the play-offs. That makes all the difference in the world.
