156 Days

That’s how long ago October 27th was, and how long it’s been since there’s been baseball played — baseball that counts anyway! And tonight, it begins where it ended last year… right here, at Busch Stadium.

For most of my life, my springs and summers have been measured by the ebb and flow of the season. I watch a ton of baseball, and go to as many games as I can. For the last decade, I’ve had the great fortune of living in just about the best baseball city there is, and that just makes the time spent in the season that much more special. For weeks, the build-up has been terrific, but now it’s time for the rubber to meet the road, and for my Cards to defend their title.

T minus forty minutes, and counting….. 🙂
