March Begins Like a Lion As Sox Begin The Spring

February is coming to an end, and this brutal winter just goes on. It will be 20 degrees today, and it looks like yet more snow is coming early next week. Ugh.

At least baseball is back.

On a positive note, the Red Sox began their title defense with the usual Spring Training opening doubleheader against the college kids, defeating both Northeastern and Boston College in two seven-inning games by the identical score of 5-2. I don't think the Sox have ever lost to a college team in Florida, but I could be wrong about that.

It appears that the Red Sox weren't the first to come up with a "B Strong" logo, as a non-profit organization in Texas has a "B Strong" logo in honor of a young man who died in a skiing accident in 2007, and a foundation was started in his memory. Here's more about it.

There's going to be plenty of Red Sox baseball on TV and radio over the month of March, to wipe away those winter blues. Here is the complete schedule of where you can see or hear the Sox this month (with thanks to the Boston Red Sox Fan Page Facebook group for supplying the data):
