Opening Day is finally here. Forget Japan. Forget "opening night" on ESPN2. This is the real Opening Day. It begins, as tradition dictates, in Cincinnati, and is followed up with games throughout baseball. Here in Kansas City, the Royals begin their season with a 2:10 CDT game against the Chicago White Sox. The weather is going to be perfect (clear and about 70 degrees), the stadium will be packed (even the standing room only tickets are sold out), and the Royals will get a win (at least I hope so).
Last year was my first Opening Day. I've been wanting to go ever since I was a kid. It didn't disappoint. It was the most glorious day in recent memory. The weather, like today, was beautiful, and the Royals came away with an impressive win.
Here's hoping today lives up to the billing.
