Opening Day and it's about fucking time

Yesterday was Opening Day and even though the Yankees won and the Orioles and Red Sox both lost, after six months of nothing but football and basketball it still feels like a gulp of air following a season under water.  It feels like spring is actually here now.  Yesterday in the parking lot at college I saw two guys in the parking lot tossing a football back and forth.  I drove on by, shaking my head, thinking, "Now I know how Moses felt when he came down from the mountain with the Ten Commandments and found the Israelites wantonly drinking and fucking and worshipping that golden calf."

Actually I thought "Those fucking assholes."  I made the Moses part up just now to be funny.

This is the second year in a row that President Bush didn't toss out the ceremonial first pitch for the Washington Nationals.  Bush likes to mention what a big fan he is of baseball at every opportunity (baseball is like his other 9/11), but I've never believed him.  Why?  Because he was once an owner, and it's the owners who hate baseball most of all.  The fact that he was an owner of a baseball team also helps to explain his incompetence, reliance on sycophantic yes-men, prevailing evil, and general lack of intelligence.

I could go on, but Rick over at Bent Corner has a much better post on the subject of the President and baseball, so go check that out instead.

The Red Sox AND the Orioles? To quote from Bill Simmons' "Rules For Being a True Sports Fan":

"You cannot root for two teams at the same time. You cannot hedge your bets. You cannot unconditionally love two teams at the same time, when there's a remote chance that they might go head-to-head some day."

Clearly, I'm reading more into your statement than is actually there, but do you root for both teams? Just wondering.

I do root for both teams. I know it's unusual to root for two teams playing in the same division of the same league, but the heart wants what it wants, goddammit.

And anyway, didn't Stephen J. Gould claim to root for both the Red Sox and the Yankees? No wonder he died young.
