begin the defense of their World Series title against the Atlanta Braves down at Citizens Bank Park. This will be my fourth consecutive home opener and I have yet to see a win, so I am hopeful that the karma is flowing in our direction after the Pat Burrell love fest left town yesterday.
In other baseball news, my son John won the TAA Baseball Home Run Derby yesterday, hitting a few rockets out to the 87 foot mark. If that doesn't sound far, well then you have not actually tried to play baseball in a sandstorm before.
Emma also participated in Opening Day, mainly by looking cute in her Royals uniform.
Well, I am going to try to arrange travel and tailgate plans with 10 people who are planning-challenged.
