Keep Looking Out Windows

20 years after paying baseball with the Yankees, Jerry Coleman made the risky decision to become rookie manager of the San Diego Padres. He explained why: "I was sitting in an airplane. A man said excitedly to his wife, 'Lean here, dear. You've got to look at this view!' It dawned on me that I wa 55 years old and I didn't look out windows anymore." Advent is a time that gets us looking out of windows again . .
