March has marched in...? Sorry, weak metaphor. But quite true. And the arrival of March means baseball will soon return. Right now spring training is in full swing, and that means exhibition games. And those are great. But they're only an appetizer signaling that soon the season will be starting, and I'll tell you what: I look forward to that as soon as the World Series is over.
See, I love baseball. Really. Pro football may be the biggest spectator sport in the United States these days, but baseball will always be my favorite. It may no longer be the national pastime, but I'll always love it. Being from Philadelphia, I'm a diehard Phillies fan. But I'll watch just about any game I can find on TV during the summer (even the endless Yankees/Red Sox series and even [yech] the Mets.) And of course baseball season rolls all the way through the summer, which is my favorite season (by far). So I like this time of year, and for those who read this blog with any regularity it means something else: I won't be complaining about the weather anymore! So I'd call that an all around win! Cheers.

It's March. Isn't that supposed to be spring? And I don't mean according to the calendar. The calendar says spring starts on the 20th, but I think that's stupid. In most other developed nations, they count the seasons in full months. So as far as I'm concerned it's spring now. And it's still too cold. This has been the worst winter ever. And it's also bad for hyperbole. But I'm over it. Totally, 100% over it. OVER. IT. That is all.
