Light At The End Of The Snow Bank

Can it be?  There does seem to be an end to the winter.  After the last two days of up to 10″ of snow, I got a cheery email ad.  MLB pitchers and catchers are to report on February 17 (THAT IS ONE WEEK FROM TODAY FOLKS!).  Full team squad report on the 23rd.  Spring training game one for the Bombers is March 3rd against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

In unrelated sporting news… can you believe that their is a lack of snow at the site for the Olympic Games.  Snow had to be transported to Canada for the start of the games on Friday.  Seems inconceivable with the storms that have ravaged the East coast in New York, D.C. has had multiple storms measured in feet instead of inches.  I’m sure most of us would gladly relinquish some of the white stuff to our neighbors to the north.

    Hm, maybe the idea is that starting spring training will naturally bring spring weather… I LIKE IT!

    Right, Justin… we can hope so, anyway. Welcome to our little tangents party!

    ugh – you beat me to it. I was going to add the spring training countdown timer to my site a few weeks ago, but didn’t get around to it 😉
    I LOVE how early baseball starts!!!

    Quite the opposite – gave me motivation to just go ahead and finally do it 🙂
