less than 24 hours until first pitch. opening day at turner field may be one of my favorite days of the year. it's definitely up there with thanksgiving and christmas. ya know how those days have their distinguishing scents? turkey, stuffing, pumpkin pie, evergreens, cinnamon...the list goes on. well, opening day at the ted has its own: hot dogs, cold beer, the freshly cut grass, the linger of gasoline as the fighter jets fly over, cotton candy in the stands.
it's just all. so. grand!!!!
tomorrow is no exception. yes, atlanta, traffic will be a nightmare. (ya know it wouldn't be if it were deemed a real holiday + no one had to work.) added to the regular opener excitement, we get the following bonuses:
timmy hudson on the mound
the phillies are a comin' to town
wondrous walter returns to his post
the chophouse crowd lookin' better than most
fredi at the helm, though bobby will be missed
we'll be tomahawk choppin' -- not pumpin' our fists!
(i really didn't set out for this to rhyme...but i went with it)
are you going to a game this weekend? what's your favorite part of the home opener? what's your fave memory at the ted?
