One summer tradition resumes this week—kind of. The abbreviated MLB season kicks off this week, but players will have to abide by a new set of coronavirus-related rules, and no fans will fill the stadiums. Like so many other summer rituals, we’re missing our ballpark favorites (as are the peanut farmers). Are you going to grill some hot dogs, open a beer, and watch some baseball at home? Are your home barbecues getting increasingly elaborate? Any ideas for what to do with the 20 pounds of zucchini from your garden or CSA?
The Open Discussions are here for commenters to connect with one another outside the fast-moving, sometimes contentious article pages. It’s a place for online friends to share a joke or newcomers to get their feet wet. As always, our discussion topic is a suggestion, not a command, so feel free to (civilly) talk among yourselves.
