Opening Day

Bronx bound on New Jersey's Transit tracks, Direct no stops, Penn Stations up next, I jumped on the "D" express to 161st, Opening Day, Yeah, the kid in me is filled with glee... The Sky is Blue, The Green Grass cut The interlocking logo well shaped and sculpted, Celebrated, Reviled, Some even despise... Ah the joy of opening day, Where every team has the right, to still hope for the epic season on this opening night, The ceremonial first pitch, The Cheers, A Salute, Play Ball, Tomorrow is Game number 2, The Dog days not far behind, Ready to bark, But today... Today we have our... Opening Day!

Hey, the Sox opened at home yesterday. We shall meet the evil empire soon....This captures the anticipation of opening day as it surges upon the hearts of all baseball fans...that day when all teams are equal.

John, I want to wish you well for your Sawx....but I can not...It's all part of the evil empire contract we sign as fans. Keep reading and thank you for the time to write a comment. Be well.
