Dept. of Let's Play Two

Ernie Banks, 1931-2015

Ernie Banks, "Mr. Cub," the man who always wanted to play two, now has an eternal seat behind home base from which to watch the Chicago Cubs win the World Series. They owe him that.

I don't know how well known professional baseball is in your neck of the woods, but of all the highly-touted professional sports here in North America (and the Caribbean and Japan), baseball is my favorite. It's both contemplative and exciting, something none of the other sports can say. And Ernie was so much more than a baseball player. Even I hadn't known he was the first black American to play for the Chicago Cubs, for example.

Baseball isn't a very big thing in France at all, indeed. It does sound pretty interesting from what you're saying here, though…
