Opening Day

Discussion created by billpreston on Apr 4, 2013

Opening Day in baseball holds a special place in sports for me.  Sometimes I don't know exactly when basketball or hockey season starts, but I would feel down right guilty if I missed opening day at the ball park.   It's one of the things that makes it feel like spring.  Clouds, rain, even unseasonably cold weather can't dampen the spirit. I save up a day of leave, or work overtime the days leading up, buy a group of tickets on Stubhub even if I end up going alone or can't get money back for the extras.   My superstitious friends and I insist on being there for the first pitch.  No time for cheap bears today.  That's for later in the season I guess.  What's not to love?  What does opening day mean to you?
