I am very much looking forward to this season with the Giants trying to defend their World Championship and fight off the (new Yankees of the west) Dodgers and the rest of their division foes. Each year around this time I get excited in anticipation of all the great things that happen as a result of the starting of the baseball season.
For this week's contest, just share one or more things that you like about the start of the baseball season. The deadline to enter will be Monday at 9 PM PST. I will random off all the entries and the winner will get a prize from the Prize Page. If I can get up to date on some scanning, I should have some more options posted by the end of this contest.
Here are a few of my favorite things about this time of the year:
- Reviewing all the preseason predictions and write ups for all the baseball teams - I used to go out and buy 2-3 of the magazines but now primarily serf the web for all I can find.
- Preparing for my annual preseason fantasy baseball draft
- Anticipating having a game to listen to almost every single night. Outside of the final round or two of the playoffs and March Madness basketball can no longer hold my interest.
- Spending my weekends out at the local field with my boys - this year is the first time both will be playing so it will be a lot of time.
- Planning a trip to get up to SF to watch a Giants in AT&T Park - the best stadium in baseball.
Good luck in the contest!
