The national pasttime, baseball, is back!
I grew up in Indians and Tigers territory, rooting for the Reds.
I still try to get to a few games a year, whether it be in Cincy, Cleveland, Detroit, or even Toledo, with their great Triple-A ballpark in the downtown.
As I've gotten older, the desire to watch the game has dwindled, but I still pay attention to it.
But, anymore, if my team isn't in it in the playoffs or the World Series, I really don't care.
I've been to Cooperstown, NY, the home of the Baseball Hall of Fame. It is pretty awesome.
The one thing I learned on that trip is that today's money-grubbing spoiled rich athletes will never be bigger than the history of the game.
I really don't care that MLB also gets the seasons underway with special Sunday games, the day before the traditional opening day, which always used to be in Cincinnati, at 2:05pm.
And, isn't it a bit wrong to open the season in places like Japan, China, and other places across the globe?
It's the American National Pasttime!
I think I actually enjoy the experience of going to a ballpark, rather than sitting at home and watching it on TV.
Although, baseball on the radio is pretty special, and has been, for, if you think about it, almost 100 years!
Grab a beer, a hot dog, some popcorn, and enjoy the upcoming season!
