Opening Day!!!

Hello- there is one thing i look forward to every year, and that is the start of a new baseball season.

Well, you might ask- why does she like baseball? Well, you see my Mother being from Conn. was a Yankee fan when she was growing up. And my father, being from Mass. was a Red Sox fan. So you see its wasnt difficult to grow up not loving baseball.

April always brings a new start to every team, and the excitement of being better this year then last is why baseball is so good. Do you remember the first time you saw a major league game? I do-it was something i will never forget. Just seeing the green-ness of the grass, and the different smells of food and everything else is what makes baseball undoubtfully America's pasttime.

I could write endlessly about my feeling about baseball, and i am sure i will. But i just wanted to let you know i am normal like everyone else. I love sports too.

When i was growing up in the 60's, i was one of those who sneaked a pocket radio into class and listened to the World Series during school. In those days i lived in San Diego, but they only had baseball in L.A, so i ended up listening to Dodger games, and going up to Angel games too.

I suppose i just love the game, i do have my favorite teams, and even though Seattle isnt one of them., i do like them just the same. And if you want to know- Yesssssss, i do cry when they they play the national anthem-- silly me!!

So to all out there that loves Baseball too-- no jumping on any bandwagons now--- giggle.

Stick with you teams, that makes you a fan.

So much for Opening Day, Part One

kisssssssssses Lisa

Hi sis,

Seems we have something else in common -lol- Since I grew up in Minnesota I've always been a big twins fan. Don't tell anybody, but I get tears in my eyes too when they play the national anthem, so I guess I'm silly too -lol-

Hi Lisa,

It must of been very difficult to have a Yankee fan and a Red Sox fan in the same house. Oh, the stories you probably have. I'm from the tri-state area myself, i grew up loving the Yankees and loathing the Red Sox. I love the game and I still play now. Keeps me active and healthy. Nice to see a lady who loves the game.

Baseball rocks, you're so right about the smells and sounds.. stale, spilled bear... venders yelling "get your programs heah'" (in Boston). A friend of the family was the Red Sox chaplain when I was growing up in Lexington, MA and he knew a guy at one of the gates, so I went to nearly 100 games in Fenway when I was around 14. I can still name the starting lineup from those years. Good to know there are some Red Sox fans in Seattle!
