We've all spent so many hours we can't even count them all in thinking about this season, writing about the season, reading about the season. And it wasn't even here yet.
I am here to greet you this morning with some good news: We made it.
All the long fall days and winter nights, the spring training games that seemed to go on forever, have led us to this. Baseball is back in our daily lives in an official sense, with games that go in the standings, and stats that go in the, uh, stat book. Or at least, on Baseball-Reference.com.
To tide you over until game time, enjoy this video a follower on Twitter alerted me to, with Ernie Harwell talking about baseball.
Now, we just have to hope the weather holds up in New York City ...
But in any case, Happy Opening Day, everyone!
