It's that time of year again.

The trucks have headed home to their stadii from spring training locales, and Opening day came in with a strange feeling, because the true Opening Day for America's pastime was in Australia? Huh?

In fine form, the Red Sox lost their opener to an AL East rival. I know the Red Sox have been successful the last few years, and they have a good team again, but as I'm a long suffering Red Sox fan, the thoughts of "Ah, well, wait until next year" are already coming to the fore.

(Oops, I know why they lost, Wally wasn't watching the game!!!!!)
