I grew up a huge baseball fan. Every week through the summers of my childhood I could recite baseballs' leaders in hitting, pitching, runs batted in, and on and on. Stats were the gauge most young men used to prove why Mike Schmidt was a better third baseman than George Brett.

How often have you watched professional golf on television and wished that you too had your own caddie? Have you longed to have someone carry your clubs, rake the bunkers, provide you accurate yardages to carry lakes, cut a corner or put the ball on the middle of the green?

Do you remember when we were much younger, playing Super Mario on our game system, and there was a level where the angry Sun would try to fry your character? I think we have reached that time of the year now. It’s early May and being outside has become less than desirable.
