I'm not sure if I have ever been so excited for baseball season to start in my entire life. I'll be on my laptop watching the game cast during class tomorrow. Where is all the excitement at? Is anybody else ready to start this season with a W!!!

Absolutely! I don't think I've been this excited about an opening day in years. We continued our annual tradition last night of watching the original "Angels in the Outfield" the night before opening day. It something we started in the late 1980's, and gets me ready for the season every year!

I've taken the afternoon off from work today, and plan to enjoy all of the opening day festivities on my TV in the basement this afternoon. On Thursday, I've taken the entire day off and will be driving up to Pittsburgh for my first game of the season. We usually make 5 to 10 games per season, and I can't wait to get to PNC Park Thursday for a big plate of BBQ from Manny's.

Let's Go Bucs!

It's cold here but playable. I'm not the excitable type but I'm sure glad it's baseball season. Really looking forward to getting these next few days of cold out of the way. It has been a really long winter. And of course looking forward to watching the season play out.

God, please let this be the year.

I'm also excited for the start. Get this way every year. Used to go but now I start a new traditon. My basement is now a family room with new walls, ceiling, flooring, furniture, and most striking my new 65" Smart TV. I may even have a couple beers.
I'll watch it on Root but MTV also has a whole day of games scheduled.

See it doesn't take much to get an old guy going.
