Today's topic du jour is world-building in erotica and erotic romance. My personal recommendation for a subtitle would have been We Like More Than The Sex Stupid, but blessedly the title H&H came (Ha!) up with is much more clever.
Today is Opening Day for Major League Baseball.
Moneyball didn't say for me last year? In the immortal words of Brad Pitt/Billy Beane:
"It's easy to be romantic about baseball."And that pretty much sums it all up. It's why I still love the game, even when it's not always easy to (blah, blah, blah steroids; blah, blah, blah, Pick-A-Steinbrenner; blah, blah, blah Bud Selig). I mean, seriously? I like to read romance novels. That right there should be a small clue that secretly buried behind the several layers of sarcasm there beats a heart of a swoony, mopey, hopeless romantic.
So yeah, baseball.
Or as I'm already thinking of this season: Year One Of The Prince Fielder Honeymoon. Tiger fans, mark my words, I figure we've got three solid years before we're cursing that contract up, down and sideways.....
Until then, let's enjoy the ride and play ball!
