Deep breath.
Compromise where you can. Where you can't, don't. Even if everyone is telling you that something wrong is something right. Even if the whole world is telling you to move, it is your duty to plant yourself like a tree, look them in the eye, and say 'No, you move'.

The "stage fright" from making your MLB debut on a Saturday night against a great team seems significant here.

Better to get this out of the way now than next year.

There is a drug that would help him -- Inderol.  It blocks the production of adrenaline.

Wish some of you urban dwellers were closer.

 

Farmers have so much sweet corn, they're going to end up chopping it for silage.  Most of 'em just grow enough for their families and some to give away but this year is an incredibly bumper crop.

You need some adrenalin. I do not approve those things. People take them in my profession all the time.
