Quote of the day

In the 8th inning you can’t hear the roar of the 9th, all you can do to hold yourself together, and trust.

    i’ve read this quote a few times in gthe last 3 minutes and I’m not sure i understand it; maybe there’s a verb missing? Anyway, I think I get it now; something about staying focused? .

    • You’re actually not the first person to bring the weird wording to my attention. I did additional searches, but the wording I have here is correct. The only thing I can come up with is that Abbott skipped the verb in his normal speaking, and the quote is literally word-for-word.
