This little boy’s impassioned 5th-grade graduation speech brought tears to my eyes. (Thank you, Bill Plaschke, for sharing.)

I used to have that blind faith in my team, and I wish I could see them with blinders on again.

Yesterday, we won the night game of a doubleheader, 6-0, but that day game was very depressing. We could have won it, too, were it not for the bonehead mistakes of one Ronald Belisario. My unhappiness with No. 51’s ineptitude is getting tiresome, so I won’t dwell.

Oh yeah, one more thing, Go Dodgers!
