Stations Lost

It’s not like I want to live in this house. I just want to sit on that porch awhile, watch the evening storms coming across the hills. Can’t you imagine us doing that? Kicking back with a couple cold beers, the Mets game fading in and out on a tinny transistor radio. You can’t put it down or the station’s lost, you have to keep working the tuner, waiting–What happened, did you catch that? Lindsey Nelson on the play-by-play, Ralph Kiner doing color: “Eleven strikeouts already for Seaver, and we’re only in the seventh.”
