Can baseball saves us?

Some days, you've just got to forget about the war on terror, domestic spying, the Bush presidency, and falling SAT scores.

It's opening day across America and despite ESPN crashing the party with it's stupid Sunday night opener, baseball was meant to be played in the daytime, with Cincinnati usually doing the honors.

In honor of the special place that baseball holds in my life, I've weighed in on opening day, over at Write in Maine.

And yes, there is joy in Mudville, tonight (as well as Atlanta, Baltimore, Detroit, and a few other places)!

In honor of the day, here is some collected opening day highlights and interesting feats.

Opening Day should be a national holiday. I should have been on my couch, drinking beer and watching the Sox. Instead, I was putting the finishing touches on two budgets.

I really like my job, but I've got to work on their timing.

I like Bloggers at the Ballpark. Let's plan a noon game, maybe July?

We definitely need to do lunch soon.

I'm with you on the national holiday thing.
