What a day. The great game was just icing on the cake. I love the festivities of opening day. If it doesn't get your juices flowing, then you ain't American.

From the tribute to the young, disabled Pirate ticket seller who recently passed, to the awarding of the Clememte award and Gold Glove to Nate, to the tribute to Steve Blass. Goose Bumps.

Opening day makes me think of my father every year, who died more than a decade ago. We shared many a Pirate game together.

Then the tribute to the fallen officers, and the appearance of those who were injured, and the military. It was amazing how many of the players from both teams cried during the tribute.

God Bless America!

Well stated our new poetic friend.

Yes, it was quite touching on all fronts.

(Funny how the bagpipes are the only instruments that don't make you cringe when they are a bit out of tune)

Tears were rolling down my cheeks.
