Our sportswriter Andrew Shortall stood at my office doorway Tuesday night looking worried. He told me he had been retrieving team reports from the La Cañada Baseball/Softball Association website so that we could run them in this week’s paper when he came across something that disturbed him.
What he came across was this, written by LCBSA volunteer coach Scott Comstock:
“The White Sox put up a good battle against the Red Sox for 3 innings before the roof fell in, but don’t feel bad for us. You should feel sorry for my poor dog. I wait until I get home to vent my frustration and give my dog a good kick every time we lose. After each game he has this concerned look on his face and he can tell the moment I pull up the driveway how our game went. He’s a big lab and they have a really high pain threshold but he still can’t wait for the season to end. I told him we probably have one playoff game left and that seemed to cheer him up. Everyone needs a good dog like him.”
