Just in case your alarm clocks didn’t work, I figure that headline for the blog might have. Game ON. One of 162.
I realize I’ve been neglecting the blog the last few days. I will make up for it later with a Tokyo sights and sounds blog, just so I can keep all of you updated on what I’ve been doing in this fine country.
In the meantime, I’ll plan on posting in this entry throughout the game, at least as much as possible.
While you New Englanders were rubbing the sand out of your tired eyes, J.D. Drew was getting scratched from the lineup — just moments before game time — with back stiffness. Brandon Moss will play right and bat sixth.
My favorite pre-game moment of Opening Day?
David Ortiz walked through a cramped hall in the clubhouse with a white mask on his face. Must be some kind of Japanese mask I guess. And Papi yells out, "This planet is full of superheroes."
On that note, it is time for Baseball 2008!
