It struck me over the past couple of years that I was down to one reason I should continue voting for baseball's Hall of Fame: It's cool.
I loved receiving the stuffed brown envelope every December. I loved having my kids check off players they liked (and I planned to vote for anyway, of course). And I enjoyed telling people that, yes, I vote for the Hall of Fame.
But two years ago, I decided to stop voting. I haven't returned the past two ballots.
