The 2008 baseball season started Sunday evening, which allows me to trot out two of my favorite bad jokes:

Q: How do you know that God is a baseball fan?

A: Because the Bible starts with "In the big inning..."

Q: What do you do with an elephant with three balls?

A: Walk him and pitch to the giraffe.

But the best reason of all to follow baseball this year is the fact that the Los Angeles Dodgers have a shortstop named Chin-lung Hu on their roster. You can bet that I'll be watching every Dodgers game possible this year, just waiting for him to get a hit so that I can shout "Hu's on first!"
