I lick a baseball... I'm licking one right now.


Suggestion received. I'll let ya know how it tastes if nothing better comes to mind... or to mouth.

I was trying to think, um, more metaphorically.

Anyway, I see there's guides to thinking added to the top. Hold on while catch up...
at the ballpark.

You have to give the hitters something to shoot for to start the season, otherwise they might not try.

Required opening day prep - links only for the videos due to the limit of 1 embedded video per post:

Who's On First?


Centerfield



In case it gets too depressing around here, at least we’re not Cubs fans. A Dying Cubs Fan's Last Request:


Optional Extra Credit:
Van Lingle Mungo – I wouldn’t add this one because it’s too slow for opening day, but Dave Frishberg is a Twin Cities guy and was one of my father’s friends from his school days.


Study up - just under 1 hour until first pitch.


You forgot one
I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

Bonofacio batting leadoff and playing CF for the Cubs... 3-4 with a stolen base.

I'm just sayin... For no particular reason.

Drink lots of good beer.


Great shout ChiTown. Just cracked open a bottle of Grolsch. Although it is currently 8.30pm where I am, so kind of acceptable.

Also watching the Cubs Pirates game, Liriano was excellent until the 6th. Painful to watch if Nolasco doesn't pitch well today.

What a slugger, and what a lovely man...I was lucky to meet him a couple times in his later years when he visited our breakfast club. I proudly still wear No. 3 when I play in my Dodgertown Senior Men's League. Oh how I wish the Killer was in the 4 hole for us today!

I wore #3 when I was in high school. I want to get a customized Twins jersey with my name on it, but I think it would be disrespectful to use the #3 on a Twins jersey with my name on it so I'll have to pick a different number.

Met him a few times and my son got his autograph, so neat and he took time to talk to my son.

Only "Killebrew", belongs on a Twins' #3 jersey:)

Ok, this organ and metronome music they're playing during the introductions can stop forever.

Glad to know it's 8:30 somewhere in the world! ;) That's all I need to know.

Hmm ... England somewhere? Ireland? Scotland? Or maybe you haven't 'sprung forward' yet.
