Play ball! (2015)

I must be getting soft.

I've churned out this particular blog post for seven years now and in most cases I've made sure to avoid any contrived start to the season, the made-for-TV openers, the Sunday specials live from Latvia, the games on the moon (what we haven't played on the moon yet? Well we'll get there).

But, for some reason, I'm itching to get going. I want the season to start even if it's beginning on evil ESPN between two teams that honestly should never be allowed to succeed.

So, here we go. The official start of the baseball season here on Night Owl Cards is when I activate this post.

Starting now:

Baseball is back!

Go Dodgers!

And if they can't win it, let's have a nice Royals-Pirates Series or something. It's been damn depressing lately.

NOW GO WATCH BASEBALL!

  1. C'mon Padres & Athletics. It's been way too long and after seeing this post... kinda depressing.

    1. You want depressing. The last time a Washington team won the World Series it was 1924 their last appearance in the WS was 1933 (2nd WS loss). OK sure that franchise went on to win 2 more series in the form of the Twins but the last one was '91 24 years ago. That is a little more comforting than the fact that that 32 years was the last time the B'More team won.

    1. The Padres do anything respectable this year, I'm blaming the stupid Braves.

  4. A moon based game would probably set many home run distance records....
