What does Jonathan have to say?



Opening Day is Closed!

badsoxI tend to be an optimist especially when it comes to baseball.  Not only do I think the White Sox have a chance to win the World Series every year, but I always think every game I'm going to see in person will be played. I've been driving to the park in downpour, but I still go.  It seems like most of the time the games still happen.  Sure, there will be a rain delay, but eventually the game gets played that day. I always do my best to go to Opening Day.  People always ask me what's the big deal about going to Opening Day.  They always say there are so many more games and the weather will be nicer later in the year.  This is true, but there's something about going to that very first home game of the year.  It marks the rebirth of the greatest game out there.  I'm pretty faithful to Opening Day.  A few years ago I sat through a six hour rain delay and finally watched them play on Opening Day.  I'm not saying I'm smart, but I'm always optimist that they'll play the game.  That actually turned out to be a great Opening Day because by the time the game started there were only about 3-thousand people in the stands.  I ended up with great seats. The reason I stayed was because the year before I left after a two hour rain delay and massive downpours.  However, they ended up playing that game that night.  I remember thinking to myself that I would always wait out the rain delay especially on Opening Day because it seems like they always end up playing. Not this year.  The game got postponed the day BEFORE it was going to be played.  Granted on Sunday evening it was snowing pretty heavily in the Chicagoland area.  However, I didn't expect them to postpone the game until well after it was supposed to start on Monday.  Not the case.  They actually decided to skip Monday and try again on Tuesday.  They made the call mid-day on Sunday. Here's the most annoying part:  It was a pretty nice day on Monday.  It wasn't cellperfect baseball weather but it was partly sunny and about 40 degrees.  That's not so bad for Opening Day in the Midwest. So I missing my first Opening Day in about seven years.  It's not because I didn't want to go, it's because White Sox management pulled the plug a too early on deciding about Monday's game. I'll live and I'll go to many games this summer.  However, I'm still disappointed I missing the very first time the team will take the field.
