I love being outside, but when ESPN showed Carl Pavano of the New York Yankees throwing the first pitch to Tampa Bay's Carl Crawford Monday afternoon, I was in front of my TV and glad to have the opportunity to be there.
I don't like baseball the way I like football or basketball or boxing, but there was a time I did and opening day reminds me why. If you've lived in a city with a Major League Baseball team, and that team opened the season at home on a sunny afternoon, you realize how many understanding bosses and slack employees your town has.
That Major League Baseball holds its first full day of games the same day NCAA men's basketball holds it's finale indicates there really is an order to the universe.
Every three years, a baseball team that wants a new stadium threatens to move to Charlotte. So if I like the sport, why am I always the one to write that we can't support a team?
I write it because we can't support a team. We'd fill the joint on opening day, though.
