By the way, I've given up on the 2013 baseball season.
I might get frustrated at some point in the future and need to vent, but I'm not planning on blogging much about the Pirates this year. And with my cooled enthusiasm for the bloodlust that drives hockey and American football, I am losing my connection to my place of birth. I always thought I'd like to go back and live in Pittsburgh; the last time we visited it felt so much like where I belonged. Now I don't really have a place I'm from.
