Holy Thursday

Today is one of the most sacred days of the year.

It's Opening Day of Baseball! I can't believe that some idiot scheduled Easter on the same weekend that MLB get's started. The banged up Phillies get it going against the Pirates a 1:30PM today.

From Phillies Nation

The Opening Day roster includes 12 pitchers, two catchers, six infielders and five outfielders.
Pitchers: Right-handers
Joe Blanton, Roy Halladay, David Herndon, Kyle Kendrick, Jonathan Papelbon, Chad Qualls, Michael Stutes and Vance Worley, and left-handers Antonio Bastardo, Cole Hamels, Cliff Lee and Joe Savery.
Carlos Ruiz and Brian Schneider.
Freddy Galvis, Pete Orr, Placido Polanco, Jimmy Rollins, Jim Thome and Ty Wigginton.
John Mayberry Jr., Laynce Nix, Hunter Pence, Juan Pierre and Shane Victorino.

I'm up early and well caffeinated. The Yuengling Lager is on ice and will light up the grill about the 7th inning.

Our long national winter nightmare is over. It's time for Baseball!
