A foul bowl would really light up the park.

Is this what they mean by “Roman candles?”
July 24th, 2012 at 08:18
Hmmm. Maybe so.
July 24th, 2012 at 00:22
Those were days, I remember my past life watching baseball in Rome…It was fun playing in windy nights..Those who wanted to lose weight took charge of lighting the candles
July 24th, 2012 at 08:19
I watched plays in Athens.

Did he draw the short (match) stick?
He loves heights. Will be performing as Pietro Panus at the Globe in Londonium

My windy nights – nothing to do with baseball, everything to do with beans…

That’s what they call a blow out victory.

This being ancient Rome, they probably unleashed the lions once in awhile to keep those base runners from straying *too* far from where they should be…
July 24th, 2012 at 08:16
And Detroit Tigers too. No one fears Miami Marlins. They’d be like fish out of water.

A very popular sports (cricket) star in the sub-continent once wore a T-shirt with the slogan “Big boys play at night”. It really caught on.
July 24th, 2012 at 08:14
I used to play at night. Now I sleep. Need nap too.

Ha, the stadium lightkeeper gets more exercise than the players!

Part time mountain climbing training.

I’m glad you threw some ‘light’ on the subject on the Roman games
July 24th, 2012 at 08:34
Lascivio sub lux lucis.

fiat ludum incipiunt !

You blow me away with this one, Carl. How do you think this stuff up?

I have no idea . They just pop into my head as though I am fed from and outside force.
July 24th, 2012 at 09:04
Gee, I thought Candlestick park was out in San Francisco?
July 24th, 2012 at 11:56
Thatsa 10 !

If it precipitated, that game would be rained out in more ways than one.
July 24th, 2012 at 11:58
My uncle had precipitated. They cured it with aloe tea
July 24th, 2012 at 16:46
I guess rain really would stop play.
July 24th, 2012 at 16:47
Oh, I just noticed the previous comment. Now I feel like I plagiarised her comment. Or she plagiarised mine via time travel…
July 24th, 2012 at 18:51
As long as you did not read it first it is not plagiarism according to the new UN guidelines on international copyright. And with second comment you in essence credited and footnoted. My uncle had plagiarism for many years. We cured him with concentrated doses of aloe tea.
July 25th, 2012 at 04:59
Ha Ha That aloe tea will do anything. Cured me of my aloe tea addiction…

This is where the idea came for the original song, “The Night the Lights Went Out in Rome.” (Yeah, you’re thinking it was Georgia … well that was on the composer’s mind, but when in Rome, do as the Romans do. Light up!)
July 24th, 2012 at 22:29
Brilliant. Thank you for bringing your historical acumen to the post.
July 25th, 2012 at 11:43
Would it be in bad taste to say they should have made those on the crucifixes hold the can.. oh yeah, it probably would be.
July 25th, 2012 at 11:46
Christian teams have been resurrected and are back in the league.

They have an advantage if the ball gets launched at their hands.
July 25th, 2012 at 20:04
He must have one big box of matches and candles! Not to mention how often he has to change them!
July 25th, 2012 at 20:06
Sports needs were a great motivation for progress and innovation in technology.

He appears to be grandstanding.
July 26th, 2012 at 14:30
That’s a good one.
