Only Five Four Months Until Opening Day

Over Thanksgiving I got to talking about Norman Rockwell's illustration "Tough Call" a.k.a "Game Called Because of Rain".

The painting tells a story! A little more detail is here.

The three magisterial umpires have always reminded me of this:

    1. Pretty sure I've seen the Rockwell at the museum in Stockbridge, MA. The sculpture is in Venice; I've never been.

  2. Also SiteGround says that one isn't found. (Not clicking Notify me on this one.)

    1. I don't even understand what this comment means.

    2. It means the link is broken

    3. (a) Which link? (b) I've tested at this using two different machines using two browsers each. I don't know what you guys are doing, but you should stop doing it.

    4. Maybe not broken, but not secure. The following warning appeared for me.

    5. I don't receive this message, for what that's worth. The Rockwell Center itself is legit. Most probably they have an outdated site certificate.
