I'm Ready For a New Season
After a very exciting and successful Winter Season, it's time to begin a new season and quite frankly, I'm ready for it. After the huge amounts of snow the area received and the rescheduling of so many games, how about giving us a break as the Spring Season is about to begin.
Time for warmer weather, time for the bats and balls to come out, time for Play Ball, peanuts, sunflower seeds, ah sitting on my bucket, my boy Wally(my angel dog) next to me - yes I'm ready.
The Spring Season is a short one. The games come fast and furious and rainouts mean sometimes playing everyday and it passes quickly. But trust me, I'm not rushing it. I relish this time of the year. I've always liked warm weather. Baseball was my favorite sport growing up. I could play it for hours.
So let's get started. Every team is 0-0. But soon that will all change and when the dust clears, we will emerge with State Champions. Yes - I'm ready.
