Like many others today (but later than most, because I've been running around this morning doing some family busines, and just now logged on to the computer), I was gut-punched by this blog post from USS Mariner's Dave Cameron.
Dave has leukemia. He's bracing for the fight of his life, as he writes:
As Geoff and Ryan Divish have already aptly written in blog posts, real-life news like this puts a little perspective on the relative insignicance of a struggling baseball team. Or even, if it were the case, a surging baseball team. The Mariners have been his focus, on our focus, but when you get down to it, it's just a bunch of guys playing a game. A great game, but a game nevertheless. This is about real life -- the most real part of life.
