Opening Day Magic



by Bitner (bio)



That's m'boy. He and I are geeked about Opening Day -- the beginning of baseball season and all that it entails. Baseball seasons are long. Heck, they consume both General Conferences each year! (btw, it's crazy how the season now begins in March and ends in November -- that's a bit too long, no?) But, new seasons bring new opportunities for players and teams to define themselves anew. If they performed below expectations last season, now is the time to exceed them. If they overachieved last year, now is the time to prove they belong in the discussion. Each new season brings new challenges, new tests.

Joining this blog is an Opening Day of sorts for me. I've blogged before -- although I'm not sure if I overachieved, underachieved, or just plain achieved. Regardless of how I performed in previous blog seasons, this one brings new at-bats, new conversations and dialogs.

Life brings Opening Days all the time. Having just completed the April Semi-Annual General Conference for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we mormons start Opening Day tomorrow. It's a new season to be better in some way. Or many ways. Until October when we rinse and repeat!

What else? Mondays are Opening Days. I'll soon welcome in a third baby to the world -- another Opening Day for me and certainly Opening Day for the Little Man Yet To Be Named. On May 22 I'll graduate from b-school and exactly three months later I will start my new job -- another Opening Day. Of course, there's also New Year's Day, the universal Opening Day. And I'm sure I'm forgetting some good ones.

Just remember: "if [you] don't win it's a shame!"

God bless baseball.
