    Question Holliday's Tattoo

    Does anyone know what the "sentence" tattoo down the side of Matt Holliday's arm says?
    It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone. You count on it, rely on it to buffer the passage of time, to keep the memory of sunshine and high skies alive, and then just when the days are all twilight, when you need it most, it goes and summer is gone. ~Bart Giamatti

    In our sun-down perambulations, of late, through the outer parts of Brooklyn, we have observed several parties of youngsters playing "base," a certain game of ball...Let us go forth awhile, and get better air in our lungs. Let us leave our close rooms...the game of ball is glorious. ~Walt Whitman

    Apparently it's Job 38:4 -- "Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell me, if you have understanding." Or something like that.

    The Earth doesn't have foundations. Turns out it isn't even flat.
    Would it be okay with you if we wrote a reminder of things we'd forget to do today otherwise, using a green magic marker (if it's alright), on the back of your head?

    Interesting, thanks. I guess it's a good thing he didn't pick a soliloquy (if they even have those in the Bible) or he'd have it doing loops around his arm.
