Opening Day


The day I have been waiting and planning for since baseball season ended during early November has arrived.

Opening Day.

Baseball, major league-style, is returning to a ballpark near me! The best ballpark in all of baseball, OPACY, will be alive and thronging with thousands of Orioles fans this afternoon. 

Traffic in Baltimore will be snarled.

But hope springs eternal. At least at the start of the day, the Orioles are tied for first place in the American League East! Game 1 of 162 games is set to commence in a few hours. 

This is also the first opening day in 50 years where every team will play its opening game in the same day! That is really awesome. 

The Orioles face the Twins and the weather is supposed to be fantastic. We are scheduled to enjoy a one day warm up that will see temperatures inn the 70's--yes, you read it right. The cold is leaving us for one day and then it will return tomorrow. How lucky can we be. Warm temperatures, sunny skies, Orioles baseball, and thousands of adoring (but skeptical) fans.

Did I mention that I have tickets and am planning to be there?

Bring on the baseball, let's get this season underway!
