Part of the beauty of baseball is that there is no clock.  It's great for a brew day - some nice weather, the aroma of boiling wort and a ball game on the radio - that's about as good as it gets with one's clothes on.  I like all kinds of sports, but there are only three I'm interested in if my favorite team isn't playing - MLB, NFL and Rugby. 

Go Tribe!

Go Browns!

Not feeling it with the team this year though...but we shall see. 

I also have a AA team (NH Fisher Cats - Toronto) one mile from my office, and we usually make a couple games in Portland, ME ( Seadogs - Red Sox AA team ).   Good times!

Did I say I love baseball?  8)

Yes indeed I do.  ;)

As an older fart, I seem to remember that the traditional opening day for baseball happened in Cincinnati on or about April 6, which is not only where I used to live, but it's my birthday.

Good day for a birthday, it's mine also

Happy belated birthday, hokerer!

Right on narvin - Lucky you!  The worst day spent at the ball park is better than the best day spent as an employee!  Being in a ball park is an awesome experience.  Everything is right there.

I have been enjoying the she-it out of the DirecTV free preview of MLB Extra Innings.  Over the past few days I have been writing annual UIC status reports for several clients.  Fairly time consuming, but well compensated for work.  My home office work space includes a 46" HDTV monitor.  I gotta tell ya, I am really going to miss Extra Innings when the preview is over on Monday.  Or maybe not.  I may bite.  There is no rewind on streaming radio broadcasts.  Maybe I can subscribe to both.   8)

Checked into the Mariners schedule during the weeks around NHC '12.  Mostly they are away.  If I show up the weekend before I can catch them at home vs the Giants.  Hmmmm...  tempting, very tempting...

Nice game tonight!  This is the year... that the Orioles break 500... maybe.  What is encouraging is that the young prospects who were rushed to the majors are getting more comfortable, with more experience and some depth in the organization.

If everything goes well, it's going to take at least another year or two for the team to really be competitive.  So, they shouldn't do too well this year.  I'm hoping the new regime knows how to draft, given the picks they've wasted in the past decade.

Also, as much as I enjoy that classy lady in the Sox outfit depicted above (for her assets), I enjoyed the last game of the season in 2011 more.  When I was at the yard, outlasted a rain delay, and saw the O's come back from behind and beat the Sox, and literally two minutes later they showed the Rays on the jumbotron beating the Yankees and eliminating Boston.  :D  We watched the NL games in the club level during the storm and saw the amazing game between the Braves and Cards as well.  One of the best baseball days I can remember.
