It's Been Too Long

I read in the news today that scientists had unearthed the oldest known bipedal skeleton, a hominid dated at nearly 4 million years old. Mere hours later, the Giants inked the skeleton to a three year deal to be their starting center fielder.

Ho ho! But seriously, folks. I was sitting at home today nursing a bad ankle sprain when I flipped on the Giants-Padres exhibition game for a listen. Brother, the baseball fever hit me like a sack of doorknobs. After about four months of withdrawal, the sweet, sweet sounds of that lovely pastime intoxicated my ears. The crack of the bat, the chirp of the crowd, the clever banter of Jon Miller and Duane Kuiper on the call. God, I felt so alive. The Giants ended up winning 5-4, in a game that was about as exciting as any spring game can possibly be. For some reason the nearness of the baseball season just hadn't really registered with me until I heard the game today, but now I'm in full blown salivate mode, knowing that actual, meaningful baseball games are less than a month away. How sweet it is.
