Winter Is Officially Over

Rate: 3 Flag


I don't care what Punxsutawney Phil sees or doesn't see and March 20th is just another day on my calendar.  For me, winter is over the day pitchers and catchers report to camps in Florida and Arizona to begin Spring Training.  That day is today!

Now Joe, I don't want to be a Debbie Downer or a Pessimistic Phil, but I know you live in Denver and I'm glad you are in la la land because denial can be a good thing BUT it's mid-February in Colorado. You know we won't see spring until May!
Winter is but a state of mind MTK. And by the second week of February, regardless of where I have lived in this country, my state of mind absolutely needs tangible proof that the spring equinox is right around the corner.

Denver's eight-month long snow window is tolerable thanks to 300+ days of sunshine throughout the year. But there is nothing like the sight of golden afternoon sun bathing the green expanse of a baseball field to signal hibernation is about to end.

After reading your most recent post, I may have to try popping an Ambien after the seventh inning stretch to really send me to la la land!
