For whatever reason, this is as excited as I've been in years for an Opening Day. Maybe it's the knowledge that the A's are being seen by many as the class of the American League. Maybe it's the fact that I need an escape from "regular" life more than ever (no, nothing tragic has happened - law school is just really stressful). Or maybe all the sidelines this year (steroids, Bonds, WBC) just made me hunger more for real, actual baseball between major league teams.
Whatever it is, Chicago's playing Cleveland in a couple of minutes, and I couldn't be happier.
