Adam Omelianchuk on the Ugliness of Baseball

Adam Omelianchuk illustrates how baseball mirrors all that is tragic in life: http://firstthings.com/blogs/evangel/2010/07/the-sheer-ugliness-of-baseball/.

He writes, "Beholding such monotony gives one a rotten sense of the infinite where hope for one last out comes to symbolize Kierkegaard’s notion of despair; wanting no longer to exist and not being able to do anything about it."

Great writing.
