Spring has sprung, and for me, that means one thing….

04/01/2013

Spring is a good time for lots of things, warmer weather, the receding of snow and ice.  March Madness.  Spring Break.  Girls wearing less and less, showing more and more. 

It allows the ability to do things outside without bundling up like you’re getting set for a trek with Nanook of the North.  Distant hums of lawnmowers begin to permeate the air.  Children are heard screeching laughter and can be seen chasing each other in whatever games their imaginations have conjured up.

Plants can be planted, and blooms can be bloomed.

Birds are joyous in the trees, singing their appreciation for the new warmth for all to hear and enjoy.

Yes, spring is a good time for all, but for me, it means one thing.

Baseball.

The perfect ideal American game. 

Perfect in its math.

Perfect in its form.

The crack of the bat, the shouts of infielders, and the insane antics of home plate umpires who are always on audition for a Hollywood role.

Today marks official Opening Day.  For the next several months, my world will be filled with stats, box scores, games on TV, games on the radio, possibly games in person.  Living and dying with the win-loss record of the Tigers of Detroit.

But for today, on Opening Day, in spring, my world has awakened from the winter of slumber. 

Enjoy the pastime, folks, our time has come.

Our First Inning has begun.

 

Play Ball!!

      Detroit Tigers, ever since the summer of 1984 when I was 9 watching my first games with my dad.
      Sat through some lean years in an empty Tiger Stadium and Comerica, but here we are again!

      You?

      • Aw I love the Tigers! I’m a dork but I love them because Kevin Costner played a Tigers pitcher in one of his movies and I looove him. But my number one team would be the Mets. Ever since I was a little girl .. although it’s a hard job being a fan of them lol.

Living with Shadows

I'm a woman in my 40's and finally feeling that I know who I am and why I am, I would like to share the shadows from my life. Having got here fairly intact and along the way found the ability to take a step back and see things more clearly it is my hope that perhaps by blogging I may help others through their own dark places.
