So I had one feature post this week...should have had two...and back to back at that...gurus must be sleeping or taking longer breaks...! They still haven't taken me up on my recommended algorithm...using a ratio of views to clicks...!!!  

This weekend we celebrate the ending of February and the beginning of March...  

You can almost hear the 'crack of the bat' and the umpire yelling, "PLAY BALL"...!!!  

Congress can learn a lot from baseball...  

***You need to plan, spring train, gather the right players, develop team chemistry, be ready to play all nine innings before you can field a competitive team...  

***Baseball is all about PITCHING...and great pitching isn't 'talked about'...it is thrown...  

***Most baseball is played outside...and spontaneously...you can't plan a win in a back room and you need to know your oppositions strengths and weaknesses...  

***Baseball is played with 9 players at a time...and for nine innings...5 players wanting to win is not as good as all 9 playing together...and playing well for a few of the 9 innings won't guarantee a win...  

***The playing field must be level...it can't favor one team over another, or one player over another...  

***Managers, coaches, and even bat boys must work together to assist players in maximizing every pitch...  

***There is a time to steal, and a time to stay put...in any event you can never steal first...  

***You need balls, lots of balls to play an official big league game...

***Fans come before the team...without fans, there would still be baseball, but there wouldn't be big paychecks...or probably steroids, for that matter...  

***You don't know the final score in a baseball game until the last pitch is thrown...  

***If you only hit once for every three times you go to bat, you're a winner...if you strike out too often, you won't be around long...  

***There are many people watching baseball, keeping score, and keeping statistics...you can't get away with being mediocre...  

Finally, only two teams end up in the World Series...and only one walks away a winner...!!!
