Baseball Season is Here!
over the years i have become an avid baseball fan. and being from the pacific northwest, i have followed the M's from their inception. so yesterday was a big day at our house. the mariner's opening day! they played texas and unlike past years they even won! even during their randy johnson era i can remember so many opening day losses.
my son is following in my path and becoming quite the rabid, oooops, i mean avid fan. he bounces up and down on our sofa, squeals in delight and generally enjoys the game for a couple innings.
i am thankful that we have a cable channel that airs almost every game on tv so i can follow along out here in the idaho hinterlands. but i miss being able to go to at least one game a year. enjoying the sunshine and blue skies that even grace the seattle area once in awhile. i would love to take our son to a game this summer, but we'll have to wait and see if a trip west is in the cards for us. if so, i can dream that it'll include an afternoon game at safeco field, watching the boys play ball. any guesses as to who my fav player is?
