Boomer’s Ramblings “‘The Thin Line’ Pitcher VS Quarterback”

As I have stated before I have a book project on the back burner. It is a non-fiction book titled “The Thin Line”. The previous title was simply ‘Versus’ I changed it a few months ago. The topics I created for this books chapters are different. To this point they are: ‘Good VS Great, Perception VS Conception, Opinion VS Thought, Need VS Want, Gluttony VS Greed, Hope VS Optimism, Feeling VS Emotion, Common Sense VS Logic. Today while on my way home from work I was listening to the radio. ESPN to be exact. They were talking about the recent playoffs (big surprise there). They were making note of one Joe Flaco, the quarterback of the Baltimore Ravens. The guys were discussing how good he really is. The subject was brought up about how he has now beaten two of the more elite QB’s in the NFL today. Last week the Ravens defeated The Denver Broncos. The are quarterbacked by Peyton Manning. This week they came out in the second half and took it to the Patriots and Tom Brady. As I mentioned earlier, Manning and Brady are considered to be two of the best ever. When the men on the show stated that Flaco had defeated these two elitist back to back weeks. It was in my nature to question this idea. Lets face it they do not go head to head. Isn’t it really the defenses that did there job on these two quarterbacks. Shouldn’t they get most if not all of the credit for defeating these guys. Shouldn’t Flaco or any QB for that matter get the credit for defeating the different defenses. 

On the other-side of this it does seem to me that the pitcher gets almost all the credit for the victory in baseball. Lets face it, if a team like the Giants (my favorite baseball team) win a game it’s the pitcher that collects all the credit for defeating the other team. Sure there is some reference to the hitters, but statistics show the win going to the pitcher. 

Well I suspect I could ramble on here for a few pages. At least that is the hope. No use putting in a new chapter if you can’t give it a few pages. I guess my psychological ramblings have taken an athletic type turn. I will have to create a whole new section. Or…relate the other subjects to sports as well. We’ll see……….

About Bigboomer

Hello, first of all I would like to thank you for visiting my blogsite. I am going to tell you a little about me. My name is Ray, I started writing back in high school. Every once in a while I would come up with a few ideas and would write them down. Most of which became poems others became short stories. Some of my inspirations are of the heart, some of them come from the thoughts of the day. You will see, as you browse threw my site my poetry is about as diverse as you can get. I hope that as you read them some will have you thinking of love, while others will make you feel sorrow. I would like some of them to set you off to an adventure. Finally, I have some poems that may make you hungry. I do have some inspirations that just plane turn into ramblings or rants as, if you read in here, you will see. I have managed to get two books published so far, the first one is titled Pathways, it may be found at xlibris.com/RayBohdan.html. there you can view a couple of excerpts form the book. The second book is Mingling Hues of My Mind it is at publish America A little bit more about me. I am fifty-one years old I have three children, Rainney, Elisa, and Anthony and two well, actually, three grandchildren Raeanne Marie, Graycee, and Amaya. I guess I could go on, but then I am afraid this will come out sounding like a dating profile. Part of my site will be dedicated to my poetry, I plan to break it down into different sections and organize it by type/style. Another section of this site will be dedicated to my blog it will be about my rants/thoughts of the day. These will vary from political, to personal, to comical. I will talk about most anything and everything that I feel may be of interest to someone. I also will devote a section to some of my favorite recipes with hints on how to capture his/her heart by winning their stomach. My favorite foods are Italian and Mexican, but this section will not be limited to those two types. I do believe however, that the most important part of my site will be the dedication pages. These will be to memorialize special loved ones and friends, as well as thank those that have made purchases of my afore-mentioned book. This is exactly what you think it is. A way for me to sell my self as a writer. Publicly get my words and thoughts out into the world. Please believe me when I say that this in no way demeans or diminishes my passions for the people and the love of which I have written, and will continue to write. I trust that once you read my poems you will feel the love i have felt, the pains I have been through, and the joys of life itself. Once again I thank you for stopping by please enjoy.
