Happy Opening Day!!!

RtBE doesn't subscribe to fake opening days, today actually is the real deal in our book, so like last year, let's celebrate with a quote from the patron saint of this blog:
I see great things in baseball.  It's our game - the American game.  It will take our people out-of-doors, fill them with oxygen, give them a larger physical stoicism.  Tend to relieve us from being a nervous, dyspeptic set.  Repair these losses, and be a blessing to us.  ~Walt Whitman

Today we get a fun Verlander vs. Lester Matchup in the early shift as well as my favorite Mets beginning their quest for greatness against the hated Braves.  Sure everyone is predicting the Queens Team to have a shatty year, but we are currently in first place...and anything can happen.  That is the beautiful thing about opening day...everybody's got a chance.

I will be spending this holiday with some good friends taking in all of the action, you should be too..after all this is America...this is Baseball...this is Opening Day!

Say Hey, It's Opening Day!!!  Let's Get It Started!

People ask me what I do in winter when there's no baseball.  I'll tell you what I do.  I stare out the window and wait for spring.  ~Rogers Hornsby
