As you watch the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament wind down today, keep in mind that in one week’s time from right now we’ll all be preparing for the big Sunday Night season opener on ESPN.
Then all things start anew. With a new spring spawns new hope in all good things. There’s something magical about this time of year, and only someone who follows the sport of baseball like a religion can understand it.
As sad as it is when the baseball season ends, this is at the other side of the spectrum. We’ve got a half of a year before we even have to let that thought enter our minds. And a week from right now is like a Christmas Eve of sorts.
Just one week from now and we’ll have real, meaningful baseball on every night to entertain us and to write about. It honestly can’t get here soon enough. But at the end of the day, we’ve practically all made it. Even another snowstorm or two can’t ruin the fact that spring has arrived; and it’s baseball season.
