Happy Opening Day to you all. Real Opening Day, that is. Not happy Australia Opening Middle of the Night, because this isn't cricket we're talking about. Not happy Opening Night, because this isn't the theater. Happy Opening Day. This is it. This is what it's all about. This is what you've been waiting for all winter long. This is the start of the baseball season. One day MLB will realize what they are doing. One day they'll rein it all back in and tradition will be restored. One day. Because there's just nothing like that first day of games, is there? There's just something so magical about it that turns even the grumpiest of old men into a giddy nine-year-old. Baseball is back, baby, and I for one, couldn't wait another day.
