I don't count yesterday, because Yankees/Red Sox hype is annoying and I choose not to participate and create a false sense of demand. Yankees/Red Sox games are like the blood diamonds of baseball. Just say no.
But today is like all the best holidays rolled into one. I really think Opening Day should be a chocolate/presents/day off work kind of holiday. I just need a stronger lobbying force in D.C. to get it done.
I sure wish we weren't starting out the season on the west coast, though. Because A) I worry too much about our boys when earthquakes hit and B) the Pacific time zone is only cool when you live there.
In other sort-of baseball-related news, I was bummed to see the Indians 3B coach Steve Smith booted off Amazing Race last night. Steve and his daughter were my 2nd favorite team, in spite of my divisional loyalties.
