Spring Is In The Air

The snow outside is melting away. It's currently about 50 degrees outside. There's the smell of spring in the air, even though the calendar says there's about 3 weeks of winter left.

Let's play ball.

The Mets open their spring training schedule today, with a game on TV on SportsNet New York against the AL champion Detroit Tigers this afternoon at Port St. Lucie. And tonight, Curt Schilling takes the mound against the Minnesota Twins at 7 in Ft. Myers on NESN.

I wish I could be there in person, but the TV will have to do.

At least the weather here in New York is cooperating. It makes bringing on the baseball season all the more enjoyable.

33 days and counting until Opening Day. Let's go.

It'll be GREAT hearing our Voices of Summer:

DO & The RemDawg on NESN;

Gary Cohen, Keith Hernandez & Ron Darling on SNY;

Oh, did I "Accidently" leave out Michael Kay on YES?

Mets went down today, 5-4, but it was good having baseball back...great to catch some of the game today on SNY.

@ least one gets to follow a Game on SNY & not listen to Yankees Propaganda.

I'm with you, Michael--Cannot WAIT to see and hear Rem-Dawg and DO again..I'm just happy there is baseball!

Happy 1st day of Baseball, Q!

I am have a trivia question I heard a while back (I am sure you have heard of it...)

What is the only day of the year when no pro sports are played?

Hope you are well...

Go Sox!

The Omnipotent Q said...

Good question Christine....

How about the day before and after the baseball All-Star Game?

Doing OK and hope you are too...

Christine E. said...

I heard it was the day after the all-star break...:-)

KNEW you would know that one!

Glad to hear you are well!

Go Sox!
