I haven’t really gotten into all the pre-season goings on just yet. Â I listened to the first two games MLB audio let me this week, but my heart wasn’t in it.
Today, though…today not only do we get Red Sox baseball but we get TELEVISED Red Sox baseball with Jerry Remy and Don Orsillo calling the game! Â And, as a bonus, it’s Red Sox baseball against the New York Yankees. Â Buy me a hot dog and let’s call it summer!
There is a feeling that I can’t explain when it comes to baseball starting up again. Â Although I’m always paying attention to baseball (and keeping up the blog by writing about it) even in the off-season, my level of enthusiasm definitely wanes. Â As excited as I get about Truck Day and pitchers and catchers reporting, that feeling goes away for me. Â It isn’t until I hear Remy and Donnie O and see the Red Sox actually playing ball, that I get that charge…that feeling of having a clean slate and a world of opportunities for the team ahead of me. Â Tonight, when Remy says “Buenas noches, amigos”, I’ll be ready.
Baseball is finally back on Â my television…Clay Buchholz is pitching against the Yankees at 7:05 tonight on NESN. Â I can’t wait!
