The Contractions Stopped-Was This False Labor?-Baseball won't be contracting after all this year- Minnesota fans can rejoice that they'll have another year of the Twinkies. Yes, Expos fans (all sixteen of you) can rejoice, too. One of my old Bible Study friends, Dave Pasek, is a huge Twins fan-the local paper would up interviewing him (the sports editor went to that Bible study in the late 80's) when the original news of contraction came out. One of my favorite same-wavelength stories was when he hosted a Christmas party, playing a mean accordion (yes, it's possible). When a couple went to leave, I hollered across the room, "Play some White Sox music!" Without having talked with him on that topic, I knew he'd remember that it was the White Sox's organist who popularized playing "Nah Nah Nah Nah Hey Hey Hey Goodbye" at the end of a winning game. Working wavelength-he did just that, flooring the crowd.
