2nd yr in a row no cactus league for me.  Sniffle.

Really miss it.   Stopped going to Cubs, Giants years ago.   Maryvale, Peoria, Surprise and Goodyear best bets still.

I always make sure to get out to Goodyear each year, to pay my respects to the Ziz.  I may walk over to MIL's park after a game starts to get a cheap ticket (if it exists this year).

Well I went to my one game this spring break.  It was 50 degrees and windy.  Fun stuff.  7 inning game.  
But I got my souvenir ball.  
Hopefully next year, I can go to more than 1 game.

My Grandpa was there for that. I must have heard that story 89 times.  I doubt I could make him out of that photo.

We got that as a free promotion, when my dad renewed his sports illustrated subscription. We watched the hell out of that VHS

I was watching some Bo Jackson vids and had forgotten the time he asked for time, it wasn't given, and still hit a HR.  I'm sure it's been done by others, but that's only like the 73rd most amazing thing he did.
He was not human.

With all of the seasons, games, innings, and pitches, baseball is a true testimony to "if it can possibly happen, it will."

Nolan Ryan is the only pitcher to strike out the side on 9 pitches in each league.

Of course it's nearly 80 today...and a high of 32 for Opening Day on Thursday.

I'm getting my 2nd shot on Wednesday, and then taking Thursday off in case I feel blah, but mainly for Opening Day.  Was hoping to be able to sit out on the deck, have a beer and listen, but I guess that will not be happening

Today is our last day below 90 for awhile...possibly for 7 months, lol.  
I always take opening day off of work because it should be a national holiday.  Sleep in, get some breakfast, and games start at 10am.  It's often the first day of the school year I take off as well.
