Place Your Bets

I am now taking bets on how soon until our neighbors in the adjacent field erupt into physical violence.

As you may recall, the game next door became quite a spectacle two Sundays ago. After a close call at the plate, a member of the team in the field accused one of his opponents of "verbal interference."

If I remember correctly, the defenseman alleged that his opponent had thrown his voice--like a ventriloquist--to coax a nervous-nelly fielder into needlessly throwing the ball.

At one point, the accuser screamed: "Never in my 10 years of playing has anything like this ever happened!" This gave me pause. Ten years? And they're still screaming at each other every week? Time for a divorce, fellas.
