NESN will be showing the first Red Sox game of the spring tonight, as the Sox take on the Minnesota Twins at the Twins home in Ft. Myers at 7 PM. They will kick off the spring this afternoon with their annual game against the Boston College Eagles at 1 PM at Ft. Myers.
I have also updated the Countdown Clock today to the start of Opening Day, which is just 40 days away.
I'll be at Professor Thom's with some friends as we gather to reaffirm that great annual ritual of spring baseball. I'll be taking the Red Sox jersey that's been sitting in my closet since last October out and root for the boys. It's something to look forward to when it's 34 degrees outside.
And for those of you with the MLB Network, they will be carrying NESN's feed of the game.
Spring can't come quick enough to suit me.
And a Happy Birthday to George Harrison, who would have been 66 today. We'll always miss you George. Thank you for the legacy of great music you left all of us.
