Magic, magic Oriole's Magic...
It's the end of March, less than two weeks until April and this girl's fancy is definitely turning to thoughts of one thing.
My beloved Birds are looking pretty good in the pre-season (even with Chris Benson out for the start and Cabrerra questionable) making good use of some of their off season acquisitions. Not sure who lit the fire under Angelos' butt, but someone finally convinced him to go out and spend a little money this winter for some better pitching and stronger bats.
The best part is the idea that just maybe, this year, The O's might make it to the playoffs. Heck, I'd be happy to see them post a .500 record. It's the excitement of the possibility that this could be there year that makes me all excited. That and the view from behind.
Room mate #1 left today for a three week trip to Asia (stopping in China, Japan and South Korea) so by default, I took posession of the season tickets for opening day. Only 6 days, 8 hours and 4 minutes until I'm out of work for the day, catching sight of my darling B-Rob and ringing in the 2007 season with Work Friend A and Abbey.
Doesn't get much better than that.
PS: Despite my intense hatred for all things Yankee or Red Sox, I've started reading this blog which amuses me to no end. Hey boys, let someone else win for once. Jeez.
