Spring Training in...February?

How many of you out there that are in fantasy leagues wish that the baseball season started a month earlier? It has bothered me the past few years and I thought that it only got to me because I live in the Northeast. Maybe I am not alone?

In a perfect world (well, mine anyway) spring training would start on February 1st and the seaon would open up on March 2nd. All northern teams would open the season in warmer climates or under the domes and as the seasons climate changed teams would slowly progress up to the north. This may sound crazy to some of you but try spending a winter watching nothing but college basketball and wondering what the red in the thermometer used to look like! It is bad enough that I have to wait until 1:00 for a football game and wait until 7:05 to watch my beloved Yankees but then there is the long cold wait for pitchers and catchers. I am starting to think that if there was such a term in a sports dictionary as Fan Patience then my picture would be there front and center.

All right, this is turning into a rant but I am sure that there is someone out there that just watched the end of the UConn girls game because the playoffs have been a snooze fest and you can only take so much of those friggin computer wizz kids cashing in on million dollar bracelets on ESPN! If this is you too then you know what I mean!
