Today was opening day for baseball.Â I’m thrilled!
The Cards opened up by really nailing the Phillies.Â Pujols hit two home runs — that puts him on a pace to hit 324 homers on the season.Â OK, so that’s not realistic, but it is a great start.
And Scott Rolen.Â Man, is it good to see him back.Â And what does he do for his first homerun since May of last season?Â A meager grand slam!Â And doing that in front of a crowd that’s booing you, that’s gotta be sweet.
Beck and I have tickets to what I believe is the first Businessman’s Special at the new Busch next Thursday (14th).Â We’ll play a little hookie from work, and see what we can see.Â Assuming the camera policy hasn’t changed, I’ll take my rig, and shoot a bunch of photos of the stadium.Â From what I’ve seen on TV, it is radically different from the old Busch, yet still a work of art.
Yes, baseball is back, and my attention will be diverted between that and the rest of my world as the spring and summer wind on.
