Although it's a crime that the first game of the first day of the new season is no longer played in Cincinnati -- where they would close the schools and open the breweries -- today is Opening Day. So put down the ointment and sing:
"Well, beat the drum and hold the phone - the sun came out today!
We’re born again, there’s new grass on the field.
A-roundin’ third, and headed for home, it’s a brown-eyed handsome man;
Anyone can understand the way I feel."
