Opening Day, Part x

Last Tuesday there was Opening Day in Japan. Last night there was Opening Day in Oakland. Next week it'll be Opening Day at Fenway Park. But tonight, it's the best Opening Day of all: whilst most of Red Sox Nation is cursing a 3:35pm start or having to urgently rush home from work to look after poor Auntie Ethel, who is once again - unbelievably - at death's door, I'm rubbing my hands together at the prospect of the first game of the year here in the Baseball Desert.

Beer? Check.
Pringles? Check.
Baseball? You bet your ass.

Play ball!
