At high noon this afternoon, when Donald Trump agreed to become the 45th President of the United States, at that very same moment, I became a Founding Member of the MOB. No, no. Not the mob of Lucky, Bugsy, Nucky and Tony. I’m too late to be a founding member of that branch. My MOB...

“Go ahead and put your golf shoes on,” my wife said to me. Ah, that Andi Berger. Always looking out for me. Despite it being 19 degrees in Birmingham Saturday morning, with a wind chill of about nine, she wanted me to lace ‘me up. What guy wouldn’t give anything for a gal like that?...

This isn’t about baseball, only it’s a baseball setting. This is about life. This is about friendship. This is about not taking anything or any moment for granted.
