Oh Woe is me! ... the whole population of the City falling into a catharsis for 'The Team'.
For those who still separate those that love sports, and those that love art - for those who separate sport and art like there is an 'Us and Them' ...
It must be tough seeing all the folks of the City - whether they be militarist know-nothings, or reactionary homophones, or racist dip-shits about to do, perhaps, an Orlando in their dreams ...
Or those who see the Art in Baseball, those who see the community in the thing ...
For all of a sudden for all the things come together ...
Oh Woe is me!
How to understand?
There is Art in athletics - just as there is art in war.
And as there is this-in-that; we all owe our attention to all of it.
So while enjoying our greatness - also our foibles.
