baseball is coming, baseball is coming
- Pitchers and catchers have reported (not so fast, Mike Piazza...)
- Sports Illustrated has done it's first baseball cover (Cubs' Pinella & Soriano)
- The daily paper now has 2 baseball stories (one on the front, one inside), sometimes three (if there's a roundup article)
- The trivia muscle in my brain is undergoing it's own spring training, leading to exercises such as this one:

Nicknames, seen in person: The Big Unit, The Sheriff, The Mad Hungarian, El Duque, Big Papi, Daimajin, The Hawaiian Punchout

Nicknames, not seen in person: Nancy, Charlie Hustle, The Splendid Splinter, Shoeless Joe

Nicknames, can't remember their real name: Dominican Dandy

I think it's gonna be a good season. I had a good offseason - with fantasy football distracting me from the dark times. But maybe that's a bad sign - you know, the inverse of "bad dress rehearsal/good opening night." New for me this year: fantasy baseball, rooting for the Cubs, getting a package plan w/the Rivercats. And hopefully another new park added to my list.

Opening Day?

Sadly, I just missed a choose-six-games package deal. It was 2 from column A, 2 from column B, 2 from column C, but that would have worked out. So I'm back to the usual whenever games. But my job is closer than ever this year - lower queen anne.

I'll look at my schedule - opening day is possible, I'll get back to you ASAP.

Lower queen anne? Perfect. When I first came to Seattle, I lived there... a few blocks and you're in the ride free zone, catch the 15 or 18 down 1st... or when feeling touristy, walk to the streetcar and take it to the ID

mmm... I'm overdue for a visit to Seatown!

ps - got the DVD you sent, sorry I didn't say anything, it hit me at a busy time.

pps - JOH-JIMA!!!!!
