Smile of the Day

Life is getting much too serious, yes? Who doesn't need a daily smile?

Another age

When baseball great Ty Cobb was seventy years old, a reporter asked him, "What do you think you would hit if you were playing in this era?"

Cobb, a lifetime .367 hitter, said, "About .290, maybe .300."

The reporter nodded. "That would be because of the travel, the night games, the artificial turf, the postponements, and all the new pitches like the slider, right?"

"No," said Cobb. "It's because I am 70."
