It’s been a very long time since I posted here, but last night’s long-awaited 2020 season opener against the Nats was such a welcome escape from the current woes. I live in Florida, where the number of Covid cases and deaths has surged, so watching the game last night was a thrill.
Fauci’s errant ceremonial first pitch notwithstanding (hey, the guy is really busy right now and hasn’t had time to practice; he’s still my hero), the united front of the Yanks, kneeling to honor BLM, was so moving I hardly missed the fans in the stands.
Cole was terrific, and Judge, Stanton, Wade and company were stellar against the tough Scherzer. Too bad about the rain, but I was just grateful they got most of the game in, given the forecast.
Only question: why is Brett Gardner betting 5th?
OK, another question: aren’t they supposed to avoid high-fiving and spitting? I saw them do both.
