Much to the chagrin of spoken-for ladies throughout the great state of Wisconsin, it’s opening day! Sorry, chicas, your men will be tied up for approximately 500 hours over the span of the next 180 or so days. Dinner, date nights, chores…pretty much everything will be scheduled around the diamond action.
Now, that’s not to say that there aren’t ladies who are interested in taking it in with their men. My wife is a big fan of the Crew, and is not only a participant in our home, but a staunch supporter of my obsession. But there is an abyss between passion and mania. I’m in the latter. She’s the former. And truthfully, the greatest motivation behind her zeal is to see me happy.
I’ll be happy with 85 this year from the Brewers - and if the Cubs, the Cards, the Reds, and the Crew beat on one another all season long, as I suspect they will, 85 just might win the division. But hey, it’s opening day. 162-0 is still possible!
