A King Lords Over The CajunsAt The Ballpark
So StitchHeads, how did your opening day go?
To me, this is like Christmas Day. The opening day of college baseball. I s’pose the only thing that rivals this is the first day of the NCAA Regionals. That is Christmas Day II for me. It’s like a mini adrenaline rush. Not a 10-foot wave crashing over you. Think of it as a shot of Ginger Ale, as opposed to gulping a 20-ounce Monster Energy drink. This is baseball, it doesn’t come screaming at you.
I’ve gotta admit, my inner clock woke me up at 5am. Guess I was a bit geeked about the new season starting today. My body woke me up an hour and a half before my alarm was s’posed to go off.
I guess the rise of social media has a lot to do with the building anticipation of opening day. You see a bunch of college baseball teams with their countdowns and getting on planes and then see them out at the practice field with the accompanying “tomorrow it starts for real” message.
