In the spirit of Crash Davis from Bull Durham, I believe in red wine, juicy steaks, and the smell of the grass on Opening Day. I believe that good writing can stir the soul and that some of the best art is outdoors. I believe in making fresh tracks on the mountain at the crack of dawn and that a lazy Sunday morning in bed is the best vacation that doesn't require a plane ticket. I believe in freewheeling debate and being courteous to waiters. I believe in the oddball front page stories in the WSJ and the long-form journalism of the New Yorker. I believe that love and courage are real, that there are things worth fighting for, and in the quote, "live all you can: it's a mistake not to."
