no time to write, but had to acknowledge that it's OPENING DAY! it's very exciting for me because i wasn't sure i'd be excited. it was a difficult off-season, and the Giants stole my passion and affection there for a while. it never fails, though. mid-March i start to feel the fever. by Opening Day, i'm a verified nutjob again. there's a big Yankee banner hanging in my apartment hallway, i put on my Yankee cap for my commute this morning, and i'm wearing a little silver baseball mitt charm around my neck.
it's way too damn cold to be playing baseball in New York and my father thinks they shouldn't start the season 'til May 1st. i sort of agree, but that would leave us with only hockey to watch in April and - come on - who watches hockey at all anymore? so, chilly, gloomy weather be damned. i say: PLAY BALL!
