I have this burning sensation that has overwhelmed me this whole off season. Well pretty much since Blanco of the Cubs lined out to Coats to end the '07 season. Opening day is less then six days away now and I have a fever that can only be cured by sounds of cowhide and woodgrain clashing together, dirt flying, fresh manicured grass, sounds of "Frosty Malts.. Get your Frosty Malts here!," and 40,000 other fanatics all rooting for the same thing. Reds baseball is finally among us and I can't help being excited. Cincinnati loves it's Reds. What other city practically stops everything for one day out of Spring to celebrate Opening Day? People call off work, have there child play hooky, cancel appointments, etc.. around one day in Spring. It is like a holiday in Cincinnati and that excitement fills everyones heart.. at least for 162 games. Once that last out is made you in your mind wish that is was just beginning. Reds baseball is here again and for the first time in 25 years I will get the full experience of Opening Day. This will be the first of many.. Thank God Reds baseball is back!
