It's a Small Thing...
I know that the beginning of the Major League Baseball season is a small thing. It goes unnoticed by most of the world's 7 billion people.
But for some of us, Opening Day is more than a moment to mark the passing of time.
Opening Day is the official end to winter.
It is when the New Year really begins.
It is a sign that all is right with the world.
It is a day that means we can set aside the political differences of the far right and far left and enjoy a hot dog together while cheering on our favorite team.
It means that for a few hours everyday we can forget about the battles that rage around the world and focus on the rivalries between the Cards and Cubs, the Red Sox and Yankees or just worry about the team that is opposing your beloved home team for the day.
America's Pastime for more than 150 years!
I am looking forward to the first ballpark dog of the season!
