As I rode along in our aluminum skiff with my parents and grandparents I remember staring over the edge of the boat and into another world of swaying kelp forests, starry flounders, and gigantic psychedelic orange and pink jellyfish.

In heaven, everyone gets to the big leagues
Coming to you from Surprise, Arizona in the midst of a Brewers 8-4 rout of the Kansas City Royals, it’s Chick Priest. I did not want to leave you hanging with your spiritual questions just because it is Spring Break, so I brought along the iPad, and between innings.
