This is our most special time of year. We have the Spring Training game today (last one in Sarasota), followed by two exhibition games - the Reds are starting what will no doubt become a trend throughout baseball by playing what are billed as "futures games" to showcase what is about to become a Cincinnati dynasty (sit down, Chub$ - the twenty tens (is that what the next decade is called?) are ours.) Then there's that E$PN aberration on Sunday which will showcase the World Champs (what's gonna happen when the Reds win their next World Series? We won't have to play that Sunday night game, will we?) And finally, finally, the day that makes winter all worthwhile for what it builds for us, the anticipation, the waiting, it is all released into the glorious...SNOWY? day (Monday - Mostly cloudy with a 50 percent chance of showers. Much colder with highs in the lower 40s. Monday Night - Mostly cloudy. A chance of rain and snow showers in the evening. Colder with lows in the upper 20s. Chance of precipitation 40 percent.) Brr!
I'm so excited I can barely sit still.
