    As I'm packing up for the first baseball game tomorrow, I want to put out the reminder to wear sunscreen when covering games.

    Even if it's below freezing and/or cloudy; wear it if you're going to be outside or exposed through a press box window.

    Face, ears, neck, even the back of your hands.

    If it's a doubleheader, reapply.

    If you don't like the goopy coconut stuff on your face, I recommend <a href="http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=150735&catid=84771&trx=GFI-0-EVGR-11695&trxp1=84771&trxp2=150735&trxp3=1&trxp4=1&btrx=BUY-GFI-0-EVGR-11695">Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock.</a>

    Also, sunscreen can chemically deteriorate, so toss your old bottle if it's discolored, smells funny or has oil separation.

    I thought everyone just wrote about the game from what they watched on TV?

    Men, especially, should make sure they don't forget the ears. That area is seeing the largest rise for cancer diagnoses among males.

    Sunshine? What is this thing sunshine you speak of? I've heard of it, but haven't seen it.

    I concur. I have sun damage on my nose from NFL training camp. It's not cancer (basically a spidering of the blood vessels) but will be if I let it get worse.

    Spidering of blood vessels on the nose? Dude, that's not sun, that's scotch or whiskey.

    It's sun when you get sunburn on your face at least once a year for 10 years. I don't drink scotch, whiskey or much of anything else.

    That's what Walter Matthau said.
