One week until opening night in MLB
One week. Seven days. That's it. One week from Sunday, the 2013 Major League Baseball season begins when the now-American League Astros face off against their interstate and now AL West rival Rangers. But it's more than just about that one game. It's the start of a new season.
But it's about much more than just that one game. It's the start of a new season. With a new season comes the return to the beautifully unique potpourri that is crushed brick, freshly mown grass, peanut shells, hot dogs and beer. And best of all, the beginning of a new season brings hope to all.
So what if you're a fan of the Twins, Cubs, Marlins, Mets, Rockies or Astros and everyone is telling you there's no chance they make the playoffs. It's the start of a new season and you have every right to dream. Please do. As Andy Dufresne told Red, "hope is a good thing."
Hope all you want. A new season is upon us in just one week, baseball fans. Life is good.
