Sounds of the Hall in roughly 33 1/3 minutes!

Spring comes in many forms. Sometimes as a day in March, perhaps it’s Easter or maybe it’s a robin in the backyard. I’m sure that a majority of those who frequent the Hall equate Opening Day as the true sign that spring has sprung. The weather has little to do with it. I’ve seen a snow around these parts on Opening Day. At least we know that warmer days are ahead. And despite what Sports Illustrated will have you believe any team has a shot at October glory. So enjoy the season…

  2. Excellent theme and mix! I hope to listen again in the morning, before my first game!

    • PS – We got smoked in our “franchise” and season opener, losing to a team of really nice, sculpted 6’3″ guys who’d been in the league for 8 years. However, I bet no team in the history of any sport had more fun getting smoked. We knew what we were doing; we just couldn’t perform like we may have thought we used to. Many high fives were shared over small achievements. I went 0-2 at the plate and pitched a scoreless mop-up inning. Along with the inning on the mound, my highlights were successfully completing a near full-split at first base to receive a throw from our second baseman on a tough ball he initially bobbled and taking a bad-hop smash off my collarbone. I didn’t get the runner at first, but I got a manly bruise that actually doesn’t hurt. Man Points! I could go on and on, but I don’t want to ruin the mojo more than I already have.
