Baseball Season!


So I am getting a little excited that baseball season is starting this Sunday. Opening day is a such a great time and even though football is taking over as the national past time, baseball still has a special place in my heart. It was the game that I played first as a kid, and it always feels like summer is beginning when the season starts. Personally, I cannot think of many things better than sitting in the sun, watching a game, with a cold beer.

Last weekend we had our annual fantasy draft and I was the 12th pick in a 14 team league. This is the first year we have had 14 teams and it really made a difference in how people drafted. This year the teams are just not as strong as they have been in the past. Of course, I am still feeling good about my team and think I put together a solid one. (ed. note: It’s not like anyone actually cares about my fantasy baseball team, but if you want to check out my team you can see it after the jump.)

Just glad baseball is starting!
