The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Today is one of my most favorite days of the year, besides of course, my birthday.  In case you live under a rock, or are not a fan of America's Favorite Pastime, today is the Opening Day of the MLB season.
Opening Day, 2012
Even though I am now an Anaheim Angels fan (yes, I know officially they have another name...), I grew up in San Diego and am so thankful that my parents introduced me to one of the loves of my life from an early age.  I still vividly remember my dad taking me to our local Sears to purchase my first Padres hat.  I was so happy to wear that hat!  I'm pretty sure it's still at my mom's house because I save everything.  My mom used to always say that I loved going to baseball games because I was allowed to yell as loudly as I wanted to.  Where else can you tease other people because they love another team?  

Opening Day is of course, a new beginning for teams.  Although sports analysts make predictions as to who will have the best season, who will make the play-offs, and ultimately who may win the World Series, I don't really pay attention to those announcements.  Of course, I love when my favorite teams win games and when they are leaders in their divisions, but I also simply love the game.  Nothing beats grabbing a dog and a beer at my favorite stadiums and watching a baseball game.
