February 4th, 2018
I’ll be frank, I’m not a big football fan. I’m writing a blog post on my baseball blog, while 95% of the nation is tuned into NBC, so that should put things into perspective.
When push comes to shove, I’m an Indianapolis Colts fan. I have fond memories of Peyton Manning, Reggie Wayne, Bob Sanders, Dallas Clark and company defeating the Chicago Bears and winning a Super Bowl title.
With that being said, you know what sounds better to me (at least compared to Eagles vs Patriots?)
72 degrees and partly cloudy, that beautiful St.Lucie organ after a successful 6-3 groundout, two innings of deGrom followed by seven innings of pitcher #96, 84 and 91.
You know, the usual sights and sounds of Spring Training.
My plans for Spring Training are still somewhat up in the air, but I believe I’ll be going, and I have tentative reservations. I hope to head down during the last week in February through March 1st or 2nd. If things go to plan, I’ll be attending two Mets home games in Port St. Lucie, and checking out the new Palm Beach stadium, which the Nationals and Astros have been calling their Spring home since last year.
To make me want Spring Training even more, MLB just released the Spring Training collection, which I talked about at length a few days ago, which you can read here.
Are you excited for Spring Training, and if so, will you be going down?
