Opening Day is one of my favorite holidays. The city is energized and hope springs eternal for all baseball fans. Boston is especially exciting.
Many Boston establishments offer all types of Opening Day specials. Lux Bond & Green, official Red Sox jeweler is giving out free sausages from 12-2pm. JP Licks ice cream is offering $1 scoops all day and Exotic Flowers is trading 10 tulips for 10 Red Sox baseball cards.
The rain has postponed today’s game and we get to soak up the Opening Day Celebration again tomorrow.
Wow – this is rough. 3 countries in 2 weeks is not good for this team or any team. this is going to be a tough month. nobody has had a chance to get into a rhythm. and why did lugo hit in the ninth ?
glad to see Frank Thomas has not broken down. what an amazing series for him. many people are picking the jays and the Sox have to get these back from them. the jays are strong.
sorry to see kyle snyder go. he will be a great starter on a more mid sized team. keep in mind this guy was discarded by the royals, so his tenure with Boston really boosted his stock.
as I write this blog. I have seen some great ones. touch ’em all, the newberg report, time4baseball, oddball baseball collector and dirty sox.
by the way .. had the best mexican ever in the u.s. last night at la verdad. la verdad is right behind Fenway Park on Landsdowne street. get the mixed grill and fresh guacamole. the waitress was even great !!

Not to worry. we cannot win them all. the bullpern faltered, but that will probably be our biggest weakness this year. although you cannot win too many games scoring only three runs. the team needs to get home to start winning.
tuesday april 8th. can’t wait. look for me in the right field box. do not forget. In Boston, JP Licks ice cream is giving free small ice creams in all their stores and Exotic Flowers is trading roses for Red Sox baseball cards in their stores.
special thanks to Bruin great Adam Oates for his autograph. Unfortunately Negro League great Ted Toles charges $10. No slight on him, but I do not pay for autographs. I told him his contribution to the game meant more than his signature to me.
I am still trying to figure out how to place these new images. please bear with me.
all is good in Boston. Celtics, Bruins in the playoffs. First time in years. do not forget enter to win red sox tickets. sign up for the Exotic Flowers newsletter and be automatically entered to win Red Sox tickets. www.exoticflowers.com/signup
