Normally, right around this time of year (less than a week till the season begins), I start to get nervous. I’ll pace around anticipating the upcoming season, and the thrill of Opening Day.
Not so much right now. Pretty sure I’ll still be pumped when the day actually arrives, but there is a distinct lack of anticipation or nervousness in me right now. Probably because of the low expectation of sustained success for the upcoming season…something many (though definitely not all–I mean the Yankees pretty much never let the fans down from a “competitive” perspective) YFs and SFs can probably empathize with this season.
So hurry up, two days from now, so that I can feel a bit of the old thrill!
(I’ve a feeling, though, that come April Fool’s Day, the joke will be on me. Also, WTF is it with having a day of baseball and then an immediate day off every start of the season the past few years?)
