Why I absolutely and unequivocally (yes it's redundant) love Bill Simmons

Bill Simmons perfectly captured why our trip this summer is going to be special and why our homage to baseball and its culture is unique in sports.From his most recent mailbag:

"We have been having the same conversation about Freddie Lynn since I was 13. He should have stayed. These are the things you think about when your entire life is flashing before your eyes. Football is more popular, basketball is more marketable, hockey is more exciting, soccer means more throughout the world. But baseball has a way of making you think about everythin
g that ever happened to you, every conversation you ever had, every place you ever lived, everything."
