Re: What Are Your Plans For Opening Day 2013?
Funny, but I don't get that cranked up over Opening Day.
Don't get me wrong, I like it and it's exciting. But for me, it's more the anticipation of what's to come. Every Reds season is like a book waiting to get written. The really cool thing about sports is that nobody knows what will happen. There are thousands, if not millions, of little independent events that all act in a grand concert that result in the season. Each Reds game in the context of all of the other NL (and even AL games) that affect what it all means is sometimes grand and exciting, sometimes muddled and mundane, sometimes very confusing, but always very interesting to this Reds fan. With every Reds season (and this is my 49th) , I think my anticipation and appreciation grows. It's not just Opening Day, it's OD+1, OD+2.... on to OD+162 and hopefully beyond. It's my daily companion for 6 months that's like Christmas every game.
Pay attention to the open sky
