Well, here we are on the eve of another opening day of the baseball season. The off season has been quite active, with all the free agent signings, the capital of our country finally getting a baseball team (Go Nationals! For the record, I very much preferred naming the team the Senators than the Nationals. The Senators have much more historical significance in my mind. At least they are using the old Senators cap designs), and the ugly steriod scandal. But above all that, there is a collective glow of happiness coming from the greater New England region and Red Sox Nation that has still not worn off from the Red Sox run to the 2004 World Series Championship. So while there are definitely some serious issues (steriods) and inequalities (no revenue sharing) still present on the baseball landscape, you can’t help but get excited about Opening Day. It means summer is almost here.
