You deserve a break today...

...and so do I, so I'm not going to be at Camden Yards for the final game of the three-game series against the Boston Red Sox. Instead, I'm going to play in the Ben Grubbs Celebrity Softball Game at Joe Cannon Stadium this afternoon.

The game -- which benefits the Ben Grubbs Foundation -- will feature Joe Flacco, Ray Rice, Ed Reed, Juan Dixon, Kimmie Meissner, Matt Birk, Michael Oher and, of course, Ben Grubbs. It starts at 2 and you can get tickets at the gate if you haven't got them from Ticketmaster.

What am I doing in that group of athletes? Good question.

The answer is simple: Hopefully not requiring the help of a world-class orthopedic surgeon later in the day.

Dr. Andrew Cosgarea at Johns Hopkins Sports Medicine did a terrific job of patching me up the last time I fooled myself into thinking I should run with the big dogs. I hope I don't have to slink in there on Monday and ask him to do it again.
