BeeJays and a Corn Maze

I ran across two stories this morning that, in their own way, have something to do with two former presidents.

After reading this first one, feel free to insert your own punchline for this:

More than two months after abruptly stepping down as manager of the Seattle Mariners, Mike Hargrove has decided to take over the semi-pro summer team in southwest Kansas he played for more than 30 years ago.

Hargrove, 57, will manage the Liberal BeeJays, one of the nation’s most successful summer teams for college-age players in Liberal, Kan.

It was so good of baseball to honor former President Clinton in this manner. By the way, the Liberal BeeJays lost in extra innings last night to the Conservative WideStancers.

Speaking of former presidents, about 50 miles from where I sit, in Kalamazoo County, is a Gerald Ford corn maze:


If you can’t find your way out, the staff will gladly pardon you.

There’s also a Betty Ford corn maze, but it costs about $40,000 to enter and takes weeks to negotiate, but you also get to meet plenty of celebrities.
