So much trouble over a little ball

White Sox Opening Day was yesterday. The Good Guys got blanked by the KC Royals, 3-0, which is a hell of a way to start the season; the only consolation I can take is that the pitcher who beat us was some cipher named Runelvys Hernandez and, yes, his first name is pronounced the way you think it is. I plan on writing a poignant children's book called "Run, Elvis!".

I'm taking Friday off from work to go to the home opener (the Sox have opened on the road for the last 14 years, which I think is a major league record, further cementing our status as second-class citizens in the baseball world); we're going early and, weather permitting, will do some hardcore tailgating before the game. It's against the lowly Detroit Tigers, so I'm hopeful for at least a chance of victory. It's really amazing that my mood in general can turn on such simple things as a change in the weather or the start of baseball season. I think this is a sign that as I get older and more mature, I become increasingly retarded.

By the way, I noticed yesterday that while my beloved Sox were getting blanked by the weak-ass Royals, the hated Cubs were running roughshod all over the hapless Mets. I predicted to a friend that this spoiled any hopes that the Cub-crazy local media would pay any attention at all to the fact that the Sox even played a game. Sure enough, the har-dee-har-har front-page headline of the tabloid rag Sun-Times: "CUBS IN FIRST PLACE!"
