The imperfect world of Ryan Braun

And so the imperfect day begins with the night that keeps shining.

I live like I have a life foreshadowing my real life.

Not wanting to see the Giants lose again, I change the channel while still thinking about baseball. There's a new performance-enhancing drug offender, Ryan Braun, a former MVP (Most Valuable Player) who's now admitted he uses performance enhancing drugs after previously denying he'd used them.

The Giants lose.

What to do with baseball players who use performance enhancing drugs? Make them sell peanuts or Cracker Jack's, or some other concession, in the left and right-field bleachers in the stadium of the team for whom they played, for one full season, at the pay scale currently received by their fellow vendors.

Here's a new way to look at a cliche: as a piece of concentrated language that needs some real pressure put upon it.

A cliche is language that can only think of itself.
