18. Ohtani and Spieth

What baseball and golf need


Just what baseball and golf needed, to take our minds off the politics that is now infiltrating sports; it was the perfect escape. Rather than sports being a diversion from the real world, especially during our pandemic, these days it seems the real world is seeping into the games people play. But not even the poison that has corrupted politics and is now seeping into sports could take away from the weekend that was.

The performance of Los Angeles Angels pitcher Shohei Ohtani and golfer Jordan Spieth provided the perfect vaccine from a political landscape gone amok, as I described in my latest podcast.
