Yesterday I got the Twins postcard reminding me that spring training tickets go on sale Jan. 16th.
I still can't decide if I should take it as a hopeful happy reminder that winter won't last forever, or if I should take it as a cruel painful reminder that it is very cold outside right now and baseball is still a long ways away.
Since it IS so cold out, and scraping my windshield always makes me cranky, the smart money is on the latter option.
All I know is that Christmas is done, fantasy football is over, everything is a lot less jolly, and I need some baseball, dammit.
This is the time of year I seriously start to wonder if I can actually survive another 2 months in a pitiful state of un-baseball. I don't know about you all, but I tend to get a little twitchy right about now.
I'm a couple days late posting a link to this (I blame Santa), but to help tide us all over in these desperate times of baseball-lessness, I did a fun little blogger Q & A with Jesse Spector of NYDailyNews.com the other day.
In case you are dying to know what it would be like if I were the Twins GM for a day...
[Spoiler Alert: If you guessed "Awesome," you are correct.]
[..."Professionally Choreographed" is also an acceptable answer]
