I only got a chance to watch the last few innings of the Red Sox/BC game last night on NESN, however, it was very welcome to see. I'm always struck by how easy it is to see and hear the sights and sounds of baseball again, kinda like seeing a good friend after being out touch for awhile. The transition from it being awkward to fun was fast. Nothing like a Don and Remy tangent to make you forget about this cold.
I'm reserving my thoughts on the Sox this coming year, and the debacle that was 2009, for tomorrow though - in what's shaping up to be an epic post. Today though, I'm a man filled with optimism - as it's great to have my old friend of baseball back again.
