Today is opening day for Major League Baseball in the United States, and John Fogerty's song "Center Field" really captures the excitement of the day for me. Can't get enough baseball? I also found this wonderful video which captures the goosebumps of an actual game. It's long (12 minutes) and only uses still photography, but the music is terrific:
Finally, for you S.F. Giants fans out there, the Giants anthem from last year:
The Giants open in Los Angeles this year against our hated rivals, the Dodgers. Their home opener isn't until April 8th. We'll be there on April 10th, for Buster Posey Rookie of the Year Day. We can't wait! Why do we love baseball so much? Read my post here and this one here, and you'll get a little understanding of how it can draw us together as a family. What about you? Will you be taking in any baseball this year? Or for my international readers, what sports will you be going to see live?
