It’s Opening Day

Unfortunately, I am not getting out of work today, but I am still joining in the collective sigh of relief and happiness that Opening Day has finally arrived!  And yes, the Royals-White Sox score will be up someplace where I can check in frequently.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

If you’re so inclined to imbibe the green beer, please try not to overdo it.  Everyone be safe and have a great holiday!

This piece is a few years old, but I came across it this morning, and I would say the timing is still appropriate.  The weather might still be iffy in spots, but only five days remain until spring officially arrives!

Opening Day is a month away

More precisely, we have 28 days to go!  Four weeks from today, baseball season will officially get underway.


36 days until Opening Day

Actually, we are exactly one month away from the opening series between the A’s and the Mariners to be played March 20th and 21st in Tokyo.  Traditional Opening Day, however, is scheduled for March 28th.
