It’s Finally Here – Opening Day
It has been a long time since we have been together. When the bats were put away, the bases pulled up we settled in for the long winter’s wait. sure we had Football and Hockey, but it just was not the same.
I have a 6 week break from the time football finishes, it is a long wait, dreaming of thoughts of perving on pitchers butts, and screaming at the screen to catch the ball. When that ball is smacked, waiting for a “You can put it on the Board…YES” from Hawk
The best tweet of all is the picture that the trucks are packed and heading for the ranch. My sorority sisters and I count down the days til the pitchers and catchers are due to report to the ranch. We compared notes from the off-season, and look for the baby Sox who are joining us for their first season. We patiently wait for the spring games to start looking at how the boys are coming together and can that double play be turned with ease. We check on our baseball husbands making sure they are well, and getting a good start for the year.
We count down the days until we are finally to game #1 of 162. We look to when our home away from home, “The Cell” is finally open again so we can ride the waves of blowout wins and extra innings, eating ourselves silly, freezing in those early days. We would not trade it for anything.
Welcome back Baseball, You have been missed
