    I am smiling as I read your post. WOW! Baseball is back!!!!!! – and it’s just beginning – spring is on it’s way and we have 8 months of baseball. The winter drought is over. I am so excited.

  2. Jane Heller says:

    I smiled too when I saw the schedule, Freya. And now I’ve entered all the dates in my calendar for when the Yanks will be on MLBN. I don’t get YES so this is a big deal for me!

  3. Kristen says:

    That _is_ a beautiful sight – so many Angels games! ;)

    Actually the whole thing is beautiful, every last game of it! Here’s hoping this California winter downpour doesn’t travel east and dampen our enjoyment of Arizona’s spring. I read that might be a concern this weekend.

  4. john says:

    Life is good again! “I Live for This”!

  5. Melissa says:

    loHud pasted the Yanks starting line up and I got so happy just reading the names of the guys. It’s been a long cold lonely winter.

  6. Catherine says:

    It’s here! It’s really really here! It’ll be so nice to see a place where there is not last month’s snow still on the ground.

  7. Sarah says:

    Just saw the lineup for today, I am officially pumped! Can’t wait to watch our guys play.. it seems so unreal after all these months without baseball. (Am I being dramatic or what? :P)

  8. Jane Heller says:

    I don’t know about the weather in AZ, Kristen, but it’s freeeeezing here in Santa Barbara. We’re supposed to see some snow up here in the hills today. It would be the first time in 62 years and people are excited about it. Me? Not so much.

    HAHA, John. I know you live for this. Happy times are here again.

    I found myself dissecting that lineup, Melissa, just like the old days. I muttered, “Why is Swisher batting second?” And then I laughed at myself.

    It’s nice to see there’s baseball, period, Catherine. Enjoy the games.

    Very pumped, Sarah. You’re not being dramatic at all. We’re all crazy. LOL.

  9. Peggy says:

    Hi Jane and fellow baseball fans

    At Mickey’s watching with all my baseball buddies.

    Go Yankees 2011!!!

  10. Jane Heller says:

    Hey, Peggy. We just scored our first run! Yay.

  11. new yawk lover says:

    bless your heart, woman, I didn’t know about this, and I do get the MLB Network here in DC. There is one complication though….I sat down with a bowl of garlic butter popcorn to watch the St. John-Villanova basketball game, and now my remote control is being worked overtime between it and the Yankees game, and it’s getting very slippery. I had to resort to grating some parm reg cheese onto the popcorn to attain better traction on the damned thing. I will soldier press on through this wonderful quandry though….Michael

  12. Jane Heller says:

    Your poor remote, Michael! I hope you can wash it after the games. LOL. Great to see our boys, isn’t it?

  13. new yawk lover says:

    Indeed it is…seeing the Pin Stripes in the sun has also provided me with a eureka moment that this long winter is nearly over as well. Now if I could get the dog to stop licking the remote….

  14. Nadine says:

    *Yay* Finally Baseball is back! So happy I can see the game right now. A day game is always best for me, beause I’m 6 hours ahead of NY.

  15. Jane Heller says:

    I feel the opposite, Nadine. The game started at 10 am here and it’s wrecking my work day! But such is life. It’s great to see the Yankees any time.

  16. Roberta says:

    Tra la … tra la!!! It’s BASEBALL! Almost missed my 2:00 appointment watching Joba take the mound!
    Michael Kaye on YES … Suzan and John on 880 radio … I love it!

  17. Jane Heller says:

    Joba looked good today, Roberta. But more to the point, the Yankees were on TV! I think we should have declared a national holiday.

  18. Melissa says:

    the sun! The green grass! The people in SHORT SLEEVED SHIRTS!! The pinstripes! The thwack of the ball hitting the glove! The crack of the ball on the bat! The low murmur of the announcers!

    PLAY BALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  19. Virginia says:

    Jane: Once I heard Kenny and Mike’s voices, I knew I had made it. The offseason is OVER!

  20. Jane Heller says:

    It was soooo great to have all that back, Melissa. I must admit that I was really jealous of the sunshine and short sleeved shirts though. It’s so cold here that we’re supposed to have a little snow later. I know that won’t mean much to anybody in the NE, but for SoCal it’s just plain weird.

    Yup, Virginia. The long wait is over. Pretty exciting, right?
