My Thoughts on our 2009 Opening Week
Well Opening Week has come and gone and I can honestly say it was CRAZZZZZZY. Opening Day was especially insane and I was tired all day because I had to be up at 4:30 AM to be on the morning news stations. It was a lot of fun but tiring. I really enjoyed messing with the news anchors – they are so good at ignoring distractions and moving along. I couldn’t get them to mess up one time….phooey. I was on the news like 60 times….oh okay more like 10 but still it was awesome.
Our Opening Day Ceremonies were amazing. We had the same band that played the National Anthem from Iraq last year here at the ballpark this year! They were very good! We had an awesome flyover, a Medal of Honor recipient, and a Navy Seal. We also had Former President George Bush throw out the first pitch….and I got to shake his hand!!!! Whooooohoooo that was really cool!
Of course the best part of Opening Day was our dismantling of last year’s Cy Young recipient. What a great way to start the season! We went on to sweep the Indians for our first 3 – 0 start since 1996. Of course, our week ended on a down note with our struggle against Detroit but you know what? That simply makes us even hungrier to win games this week!
This week we are playing the Orioles and the Royals. Two teams that have started the season well so it will be a week full of good games. I’ll be out every night cheering on my boys in red and blue so be sure to come and see me! Don’t forget that Wednesday night’s game is an Autograph Wednesday and $1 hot dog night. I can’t wait – I loooooove me some ballpark hotdogs yum yum!
On Saturday, April 18th, we will be having a 5k Breathe Walk for the American Lung Association. I’ll be visiting all the participants before the walk here at the ballpark so come on out and support healthy lungs!
