As a voice in the crowd, I don't write much about Justin Bieber. I'm no aficionado of reality TV.
So I wouldn't have much to say about the next politician's Twitter scandal, or what's happening on "The Real House Servants of Arnold Schwarzenegger." Frankly, I couldn't care less about the well manicured housewives of Camden, New Jersey or their plastic surgery disasters.
But baseball is something I can do. In huge quantities. So when baseball is on TV or in your neighborhood, there is no need, really, to keep up with any Kardashians.
As one sportscaster said right before baseball's All-Star game, the best reality television that exists is live sports. And, the thing that is encouraging is that the best stories about sports still come from fans.
In the spirit of reality TV though, I spent a few moments before the recent Cubs/Phillies game stalking fans to hear their story. They had a lot to say.
