The birds are singing, the sun is shining, and–most importantly–BASEBALL IS BACK. Just knowing that tonight I’m gonna go home and watch Twins/Angels makes me deliriously happy. (Wish I could watch Phillies/Nats, but unfortunately, I’m working, and they’d probably get ticked if I started watching the game at work. And they’d know about it because, well, I scream when I watch games. And squeal. A lot.)
I was pretty agnostic regarding who I wanted to win last night’s Opening Day game, Red Sox vs. Yankees. On one fantasy team, I have Sabathia and Scutaro (cutie!), so my ideal fantasy situation was to have Sabathia get the win and some Ks but for Scutaro to get a couple hits off him. It didn’t quite go as planned–Sabathia was less good than I’d thought he’d be, although thankfully he got a no-decision (I’d have been really ticked if he’d gotten a loss in his first game). Scutaro ws better than I thought he’d be–he was 2 for 3 with one RBI, a run scored, and a walk. Not too shabby at all (plus he’s fun to watch because he’s cute, and also because Scutaro at bat meant Ellsbury would be up next, and while Ellsbury wasn’t so great last night, he at least looked good…despite also looking frustrated).
Even though I didn’t really care about the outcome of last night’s game, I sat there on my couch grinning like a Cheshire cat as I watched the game. It didn’t matter who was playing–baseball’s finally back, and I couldn’t be happier! I’ll watch any team, any game, anytime…I can always find someone to cheer for, drool over, or scream at! Just knowing that there’s an entire season’s worth of this sort of awesomeness coming my way makes me feel like the happiest girl in the world!
