It's unfortunate that the commissioner's office has decided to allow that to be the reality. I don't think Pete would mind if they said 'No' to Pete. Pete wants them to go one way or the other and get him out of the void he's in.
That space between the white lines - that's my office. That's where I conduct my business.

Over time I learned that there are two very different satisfactions that you can have in your life. One is the satisfaction of becoming skilled at something.

You're always struggling because you're not playing on a 53-and-a-third by a 120-yard field. You're not playing on a baseball diamond. With golf, every field is different and every atmosphere is different. The grass is different. The weather is different. You're outside. You're not in a stadium. There are so many different variables, so you never master golf. So, I think good athletes like a challenge.

Except I find pitching and batting are visually very striking.
