No Pepper

An admission: I’m not a fan of baseball. I wish this was not so. Because if I was a fan of baseball, the next six months wouldn’t go by so slowly. But, hey, there’s some good news! We’re exactly six months away from The Season starting.

That said, I understand that today is Opening Day for the Major Leagues, which brings with it a sense of excitement for many sports fans. And so, much like wide receiver, Michael Bennett, I shall endeavor to enjoy this day:

And in the coming days ahead, as we trudge onward towards the Fall, perhaps I’ll share a story about the first baseball game I ever attended: Auburn v. UGA, at Foley Field, the night Bo Jackson busted our lights with a homer.

Until then, Go Dawgs and Go Braves!
