    Wow, 71 days until opening day. Well, 70 now I suppose. I remember when I was a kid, I would always be “sick” for the opener. I often wonder if my Mom either didn’t realize or didn’t care. I guess I could ask. Oh well.

      Glad your mom allowed that to happen, you’re a lucky fellow, I wasn’t that lucky. Sadness.
