Happy Opening Day!
Short blog tonight, but I wanted to wish everyone a happy day and weekend of celebration on this wonderful holiday, my favorite of the year – the snow can try to torment a little more, but the Boys of Summer are back, the green leaves and warm days will be back to stay soon!
We won’t talk about the disappointment in New York today, but it was a great day for National League ball!
First the Braves won! While I’m no longer thinking about making Atlanta my home, I was a Braves fan when they were at the bottom and enjoyed the ride to 1995. The Braves will always have a respected number 2 NL spot in my heart.
The highest high point of today was The Reds Opener, the Official start of the 2011 season. The season has truly started when the oldest professional team in baseball takes the field! After a shaky start, the Reds came out on top, thanks to a 9th inning walk-off homerun from Ramon Hernandez. It’s the first Opening Day win for the Reds since 2007.
According to some pre-season opinions, beating the Milwaukee Brewers today is comparable to defeating the Cardinals last year. We’ll see how the season unfolds for the Brewers, but as today closes, just like last year ended, the Reds are in first place! The Cardinals are in last. I don’t expect the Cards to stay in last anymore than I expect Albert Pujols to have another day that he hits into three double plays. But as a Reds fan, boy was it a good day!
Happy Opening Day, Sparky bless us, everyone!
