Today is the day! February 14th, 2011. One of the happiest days of the year! No, not because it’s Valentine’s Day. Not even because it’s Statehood Day for Arizona and Oregon.
Today is the day that Pitchers and Catchers report and Spring Training begins! The only day that beats this day is Opening Day! This year is the Cubs’ year! (Of course every year is the Cubs’ year at this point in the season. Realistically, I expect the Brewers to do really well in the NL Central this year.) So go eat a hot dog, buy some peanuts and Cracker Jack and rejoice in the fact that baseball season is here!
Here’s a quote from the movie “Valentine’s Day” for your enjoyment:
Teacher: “And now for a little history about Valentine’s Day”
Franklin: “Valentine’s Day was a massacre in Chicago where they shot everybody and put a curse on the Chicago Cubs”
Teacher: “Thank you for sharing, Franklin, but this is a different Valentine’s Day.”
