I started America's Favorite Pastime struggling with what it means
to be an American in this day and age.   America's Favorite Pastime
is a rather bold statement.   Every time I hear those words I think of
baseball, also our loss of innocence.   I turned to who we are today as
a people and a nation.   I am convinced America's Favorite Pastime
is escalation, it's keeping up with the Joneses, winning at any cost.
