Here’s the thing about the first day of baseball in Cincinnati. They have a parade. It usually rains. Everyone takes off work. People get very drunk. And the Reds lose.
Ya wanna know what Opening Day means to me? It means 161 more baseball games before football season! It means being able to stay at home when the Reds are out of town and not worry about traveling, not worry about how my kids are growing without me being there. It also means no paychecks. Which is something I DO worry about.
Oh well…let the summer begin! And please, let’s keep the extra-inning, 4 hour extravaganza’s to a minimum this season. Thanks coach!
