Well, it may not be the most anticipated Opening Day in recent memory. Ok, so it might even be the least. But when I woke up this morning and heard the words: “It’s Opening Day for the Phillies,” I’ll admit it:
My heart fluttered. And I had a moment of pure joy in anticipation of the brand new baseball season spreading out before me.
And then I remembered our starting outfield.
But I digress.
So when I reached into my closet this morning, I pulled out the only attire appropriate for today.
And I will wear it proudly! Because, win or lose, after all, they’ll always be “my Phillies.”
Have a great Opening Day and may this be the year that your team will play on a “Field of Dreams.”
