No baseball today

Globe Life Field - pictures, information and more of the future ...
As we fight this coronavirus, we add another change to our schedule.
No baseball today.  Worse than that, our new beautiful stadium with a retractable roof will have to wait for a game.  Ironically, the roof, designed for our summer heat, would have come in handy today because of rain in our forecast.
When will we play ball?  The sooner the better, because April without baseball is something that I’ve never experienced.
Shortstop Elvis Andrus, who has played in every opener since 2009, said this about it:   
“I had so many dreams about opening the new stadium and how pumped we are,” Andrus said. “We are still going to be pumped up until the actual Opening Day. Not only for us but for the fans. Going to social media, you can see how sad they are. We are all in the same boat, not only as a player, but fans, they are having an even harder time than us.”
The Rangers had other events planned at Globe Life Field leading up to Opening Day. Chris Stapleton and Willie Nelson were scheduled to give a concert there on March 14, followed by exhibition games last week against the Cardinals and against Rangers Minor Leaguers. All were canceled.
Matwick said the Stapleton/Nelson concert would have been great but was designed to set a construction date to finish the project. The exhibition games were trial runs for all ballpark operations.
“Our intent was not to oversell those things,” Matwick said. “We wanted to save all the pageantry for Opening Day.”
The main focus now is to catch up on some roof tests that were put on hold, not by health concerns but because of rain over the past 10 days.
Well, we will all have to wait for baseball.  Hopefully, it won’t be long!

2019 and “Unplanned”

Image result for unplanned movie images
As far as I know, you won’t find a commercial for the movie based on Abby Johnson’s book Unplanned.  I have not seen any.  Yet, it will probably draw millions of people across the country.  
On Saturday night, we went to see the movie and it is strong.  I am not a movie critic so I have no clue about the actors or producers or directors.  All I can tell you is that the movie will hit you between the eyes.
This is what Thomas A. Glessner wrote about the movie:  
After eight years at her clinic, Abby saw something that changed her forever. She was asked to assist in an abortion procedure by firmly holding the mother’s abdomen during the probe on the ultrasound machine. She watched the screen in horror as she saw the image of a fully-formed baby fighting for her life while being systematically decapitated.
Yes, it is quite a scene.  I looked around and saw women crying in shock.  I have never felt or seen anything like that before.   
Unplanned comes at a time that the country is having a conversation about late-term abortion and states are passing “heartbeat” laws.
Let me tell what I saw:
First, most of the women who came for an abortion in the movie were very young and scared.  They were advised to pay and get rid of the problem. 
Second, I had never seen what goes on in an abortion clinic.  This is not the routine operation that you often hear about.  
Third, the people who work in these clinics have been brainwashed to believe that this is a “reproductive right” no different than a woman getting nose job.
I walked in a “pro-life” man.  I walked out very angry that we tolerate this barbarism in the U.S.  Furthermore, the politicians who argue in favor of a woman’s right to choose are the same ones who break down because we are separating families on the border.
Unplanned is worth seeing!  Let’s hope that it changes some hearts.
