It appears that yes, great minds do think alike. Or perhaps it’s just that when pitchers and catchers report on Valentine’s Day, the true seamhead can’t help but make the obvious connection.
At any rate, hot of the heels of Nick’s post on the subject, I submit for your approval today’s Boston Metro Column: Feeling the Springtime Butterflies. Looking at the AL East as a whole, there’s plenty of reasons for Red Sox fans to be all of a-twitter about their team today.
Random note: I can’t tell you how refreshing it feels to go back to writing columns about baseball. As Madonna put it so well:
I made it through the wilderness
Somehow I made it through
Didnt know how lost I was
Until I found you
I was beat– incomplete
I’d been had, I was sad and blue
But you made me feel
Yeah, you made me feel
Shiny and new
Here’s to feeling shiny and new! Thanks, baseball!
(And here’s to buying cute Red Sox tees with hearts on them.)
