Well, today was a day of respectful obligation for all baseball fans. Opening Day!
I got to watch a bit of the first Red Sox game of the season in the basement of the Catholic Center at BU. It has a sweet plasma television, and lots of good at no marginal cost. It’s pretty sweet! And throughout the game, my parents and I were texting each other about what was going on. My dad was lucky enough to be at the game, and he had a great time at the park. The ballpark in Baltimore, where the game was today, is a great ballpark. It’s a ton of fun seeing a ball game there.
The only thing that would have made the day better for him at the park, and me in Boston, was if the Red Sox had won. But alas, Baltimore beat the Sox fair and square. But it was only the first game of a 162 game season. There is hope for the Sox and all teams! Even the Cubs!
The dialogue in my family and the start of the baseball season tops tonight’s list of good things. Let’s go Red Sox!
