Luke, John and (David De)Jesus

Baseball in January? Millionaires and beer? Those combinations were too appealing to pass up. Along with a couple hundred other fawning baseball dweebs, I walked through the door of the 810 Zone in Leawood on Friday to get a gander at Royals players past and present. Luke Hudson, John Buck and David DeJesus were the star attractions. Although he retired twenty years ago, grizzled pitcher Dennis Leonard had twice the charisma of the current players.

I once mocked the geezers who'd drop dead while clearing snow from their driveways. Not any more. The snow I shoveled Sunday morning felt as heavy as plutonium. And based on the ache in my right knee and left bicep, it might have been toxic.
