Fields Of Dreams

After months of waiting, it's here - Opening Day, the most promising day on the baseball calendar. The mere act of logging on to this morning to see "Opening Day" writ large on the homepage was enough to bring a broad smile to my face.

A baseball season has many great moments, but none is as universally welcomed and appreciated as Opening Day. Everybody starts the day 0-0 (well, almost everybody) and anything can happen. Day games abound, and fans all over the world will be sat in front of their TVs and PCs, ready to write the story of the 2006 season on the clean slate in front of them.

There are many wise things that could be said today, but Red says it best:
It's opening day, folks. Stay home. Watch baseball.
