Happy Opening Day!!! (And Big Win for Chelsea FC!)

Big sports day here for RTBE. This morning we had our favorites Chelsea FC holding on for a narrow win in the quarterfinals over the hated Man U via an amazing goal from Demba Ba (with service from Juan Mata) 
Bring on Man City at Wembley, the FA Cup will be staying at Stamford Bridge!
So we start the day off on a fantastic note, but things will get even better as the main event starts this afternoon...Opening Day is upon us!!
RtBE doesn't subscribe to fake opening nights, today actually is the real deal in our book, so like last year and the year before, 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's also a historic day in NYC as both the Mets and the Yanks open the season at home, the first time since 1956 that two teams from this city did that, then it was the Giants and Dodgers who play each other today at 4 on the left coast. I just wish the two NY C games were at staggered times because each game on opening day (hell the whole season) is special.

There are some other intriguing match-ups too, we will be amped for that Reds v Angels duel at 4 which could be a World Series preview and the Cubs v Pirates will have our personal attention for fantasy purposes (C'mon Samardzija!).

Since we often talk music here on the site, let's end the post with some tunes to get you in the mood for what SHOULD be a national holiday. See you at the ballpark!
