The last week of Spring Training is upon us!
The only thing I don't like about being abroad is missing baseball. In the Middle East, the day games are like West Coast games, and in Lebanon, I can't even watch the games because of the crappy internet! But I'm going to Cyprus to watch the Reds opener. It's a 20 minute flight (but still have to be to the airport two hours early.)
Wish I could write something about the glory of Opening Day and the rebirth of spring, but I've had spring since January! Kind of takes some of the specialness out of it. It'd be like having Cadbury Eggs all year around. They're only good because you can't have them all the time.
I'm hoping Mike Leake wins the fifth starter's spot.
