I feel like it's taken forever to get here this year, but today is finally Opening Day for your 2010 Baltimore Orioles. The game isn't until 7 p.m. so we still have a long day ahead of us before the O's take the field at The Trop. Luckily I'm not working today so I don't have to deal with the long wait to get home. All I have to do today is think about baseball. And maybe get a pedicure.
Hey! Don't forget that we're meeting to watch the game tonight. Check out the details in the Fan Post and if you think you might meet us, let me know. I'm confident that it's going to be a blast.
Today is a day when I'm excited. I don't even care about all the other stuff that normally bothers me about the team. I don't care that they're gonna lose a bunch of games or that Garrett Atkins is on the team. I only care that baseball is back and that I'm going to get to see Brian Matusz and Matt Wieters and Adam Jones and Nick Markakis and Brian Roberts and Felix Pie and Nolan Reimold and Brad Bergesen and oh, what the hell, Miguel Tejada.
