Four words is all you get

Awards season will be upon us before you know it, and I already have one to give out.

The MVP — Most Valuable Post.

I know it because I just saw it.

It is only four words long. But they are four perfect words.

WE — a word that says community, plurality, common interest, sellout crowds, loud noise, 80 million fans, widespread contention for races, and thousands of MLBlogs.

REALLY — completely unnecessary, but when added for effect in this sentence it tells you that even more emphasis is needed for what’s inside.

LOVE — the verb of our pastime, even moreso than “play.”

BASEBALL — not just the sport we love, but a bold and beautiful word said with meaning.

This is why we are all here, and a new MLBlog has said it as succinctly and appropriately as it can possibly be said. Thanks.

If you only had four words for a post right now, to express your own baseball opinion and passion, what would they be? Comment below — you only get four words.
