Baseball is BACK!

Happy Opening Day to every baseball fan past, present, and future! Hands down this is THE single-most exciting day of the year.

Football, Basketball, Hockey, and Soccer. They all have first games of the season, right? Of course their fans get excited for the opening game of the season. But Major League Baseball is THE ONLY league to have their own LOGO for the first game of the season.

Opening Day in baseball is more exciting than the first game of any other sport. It is so hyped up, every baseball fan has something to do. Easily, baseball is the best sport in America.

I’ll be at the A’s game tonight, so expect a post up within the next week or two! (Yes, I still have the WBC to finish writing about)
