On the Start of Spring Training

Today is the day pitchers and catchers report to spring training. As a baseball fan (specifically the Red Sox) and someone who actually could not care less about college basketball this is a very happy day for me. I love the winter, but after football season is over I just tune out sports-wise until Spring Training. I can really only take so many days of Mike & Mike filling time with talk of steroids and bong-hitting swimmers before the silence of the bats drives me nuts. So, here’s to my official first day of spring. I don’t care what the calendar says. The season has begun.
