The World Series Championship will be handed out tonight to one of two teams who haven’t hoisted a trophy in decades, or a century. It’s the magic of the game at its finest.
I grew up playing baseball. Baseball was all me and my brothers knew for a large chunk of our childhood. There have been many wins and more losses, over thrown tosses to first and missed tags on second. But for all the blunders, there were first place finishes celebrated, home runs hit, and wild catches made.
Baseball had no limits in our eyes. We’d play on the floor of the Atlantic Ocean when the tide went out along Cape Cod. We’d play on the driveway, the empty lots, and the gravel or clay fields. Baseball was the first sign of spring and the last breath of fall to us. Baseball was magic.
Baseball was my first love; it made me long to root for the underdog. To some it seems basic, perhaps even boring, but to me it’s nothing short of the beautiful game.
So if you’re watching the game tonight with as much giddiness and glee as I, whip up these super easy cookies. They are simple and divine, just like baseball.
