Your dream to, say, be a mascot.
I also have a dream that one day, after 16 years, my baseball team actually has a season that ends above .500. Right now, their record stands at 7-7. I expect that to derail. Especially with their ownership. Why spend money on talent? You’ll take the kids to the ball park in the summer to buy $15 hot dogs even if the team sucks.
A link that’s almost two years old, but still relevant as this year’s Major League Baseball season gets under way:
“When I came here in 2001, they promised me a championship team,” the stadium said. “I was warned by venerable and much-beloved Three Rivers Stadium — which imploded soon afterwards, as you know — that I should look elsewhere, that this team was set in its ways and not focused on rebuilding, that they were simply using me as a means to make money,” the stadium said. “I was young and brash and I didn’t listen. Now that I am more mature and have settled a bit, I realize I have to do what is best for me and my family.”
I miss Three Rivers. They imploded it on my birthday. Apropos.
