Technically speaking, Opening Day is tomorrow, April 5th. But the MLB folks thought it would be exciting to match up Boston & NYY tonight on ESPN2 and I think they are correct.
As a baseball fan whose home team is still the Dodgers, I look forward to watching the game tonight because I live in Sox territory and people here are rabid. I mean foaming at the mouth rabid about their Boston teams. I doubt they are any more obnoxious about it than NY fans but, tonight, they're playing in Boston. In that spirit and in the spirit of the great musical, Damn Yankees, I'll be watching and rooting for the "home team", the Red Sox.
