Ahhh…drink in the rain, kids. We’re not getting any baseball today (or at least I’m not expecting us to). But today is officially Opening Day!! So get excited about your 2011 New York Yankees!!
I strongly suggest following http://riveraveblues.com. It is decidedly my favorite Yankee blog. Stay away from ESPN at all costs, especially that terrible Chicken Little zone known as ESPN New York.
Because it’s a fucking long season. There are 162 games in the year and you can’t freak out every time you lose 3 or 4 games in a row. Some losses will be devastating sure. But even the best team in the Bigs this year will lose about 60+ games. So try not to get too far ahead of yourself. Enjoy the ride. And remember, it’s a marathon…not a sprint.
My goal this season is to watch 162 games, either live or on TV. It’s going to be tough considering I work and go to school. But we’re going to do the best we can on this one. I bought the MLB at Bat iPad app and am probably going to get the subscription to MLB.tv if it guarantees I get all my Yankee games on my iPad. I love me some YES HD. And I’m going to try to make it to as many Yankee games as is fiscally possible.
So grab your hats, jerseys, and most importantly, your Yankee pride. The quest for number 28 (probably) begins today. Play ball.
