    Baseball '08!

    Well, it's time to get out and smell the horsehide!

    Can we forget all the BS from the off season and start fresh?
    The only thing that will save the season is a Cubs WS win...

    Play ball!

    What's going on?

    The Dodgers are in China.
    The LAD's split squad was coached my Tommy Lasorda.
    Billy Crystal played for the Yankees
    The games to look for this year are the Tampas against the New Yorks!

    This should be an interesting season.....

    Being a Cubs fan

    I'm a Chicago Cubs fan because I know:
    *Bartman has nothing to do with the Simpsons
    *When the ivy on the outfield wall was first planted (1937)
    *The Curse of the Billy Goat
    *What to do with an opponent's home run ball in the bleachers (Throw it back!)
    *The outcome of the first night game played at Wrigley Field (It was rained out.)
    *What the Eamus Catuli sign means (Latin, roughly: Go Cubs)
    *The four Retired Cubs Players Numbers: 10 (Santo), 14 (Banks), 23 (Sandberg) and 26 (Williams).
    *The meaning of Tinker to Evers to Chance (and Dunston to Sandberg to Grace).
    *A Frosty Malt (or a lemon ice) tastes really good at a summer game.
    *No one leads the seventh-inning stretch quite like Harry Caray did.
    *The average number of days per year that it is great to be a Cubs fan (365).
    *I bleed Cubby blue!
    And finally: I know the Cubs are going to WIN THE WORLD SERIES!

    Edited to add... ten innings ... Brewers, 4; Cubs, 3. Hey, it can't get worse then the W flag not flying.

    And I hope to go to a Brewers' game with my best friends this summer. They lived in Wisconsin for 3 years but never got to attend a game at the new arena. Their former neighbors went and said it is a really nice arena. I hope we'll go this summer.

    GO OAKLAND! My hopes are high, as usual...and I have a feeling they will droop in the latter half of the season...as usual lol.
    Yes I am still a San Fran fan too, I dont give a fig about astriks or records...I just care about good baseball. My fondest memories of childhood involve a big ball park hot dog, garlic fries and sharing the joy of the game with my mom and dad. Of course it was always better when the home team won
    I've seen games in Candlestick park and Oakland colluseum. Fun times indeed.

    A nail-biter at PNC Park!

    Right now it's 8-8 in the top of the 12th inning in the Pirates home opener against the Cubs. I SO want Pittsburgh to win this game!

    sorry... I mean, I'm glad for the Cubs, but I always want to see the home team win their home opener.

    Opening Day at Fenway Pahk

    That Ring Ceremony was fantastic!! Love that the Celtics, Pats and Bruins were part of it - just like in 2005. My favorites - Bill Russell and #4, Bobby Orr.

    And Buckner throwing out the first pitch

    Well of course when I go to the game the Yanks lost. They won the next day and lost today. This might not be the best season for them.

    Hey, what was with the airshow over Fenway on opening day?

    THAT was cool, too bad the pilot got grounded.

    ----------

    Great story about the Yanks new stadium. Apparently a construction worker
    buried a Bosox shirt under a concrete pillar near the home dressing room, along with a curse.
