This post is a follow-up to Fever Pitch where I admitted to being on my way to becoming a baseball fan-addict.
I was overjoyed to hear Alan Ashby and Jerry Howarth on the Fan590 again a few weekends ago broadcasting a Blue Jays spring training game. It made me smile. Their voices brought on inner peace. Yes, inner peace. Seriously, that’s what an addict finds when the addiction is satisfied, isn’t it? No more watching baseball movies to get my fix. No more wishing, longing, yearning, daydreaming. Winter is over and spring training well underway.
Furthermore, there’s a whole season, 162 games People, to look forward to. I must be insane but I’m ecstatic! I’m checking out the schedule, carefully picking the games I want to attend. The choices are mind-boggling: Bobblehead giveaways, Fan Appreciation Days, Summer Friday Fan Festival games, the list goes on. So far, I’ve only chosen one. That’s okay. It’s not a fast game, so I don’t need to act fast. It’s all about slowing down and appreciating human skill.
Anyone think I’m nuts yet? Are you following your team’s spring training? Any suggestions from Blue Jays fans about which games to attend?
