    Baseball: Opening Day!

    The baseball season starts this week, and none too soon for me. I love this quote from A. Bartlett Giamatti (late commissioner of baseball and poet):

    It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone. You count on it, rely on it to buffer the passage of time, to keep the memory of sunshine and high skies alive, and then just when the days are all twilight, when you need it most, it stops.
    By Hall of Famer Early Wynn:
    An opener is not like any other game, there's that little extra excitement, a faster beating of the heart. You have that anxiety to get off to a good start, for yourself and for the team. You know that when you win the first one, you can't lose them all.
    And by the great Joe Dimaggio:
    You always get a special kick on opening day, no matter how many you go through. You look forward to it like a birthday party when you're a kid. You think something wonderful is going to happen."
    Forget the Final Four. I have been waiting for this since last October!

    A nice start with a game-winning home run. You see the high heat by President Bush?
