I mean, I'm excited for the Olympics, I truly am. Lindsey Vonn is awesome. I hope that one female snowboarder who fell when she was showboating at the last Olympics and lost the gold, I hope she wins and has the opportunity to not be a hot dog. Shani Davis, Shaun White - The Flying Tomato or whatever he's asking us to call him now, those guys are all cool. I'm pulling for the Canadians in hockey because it's their sport and they've got 3 Blackhawks. Speaking of which, I'm excited for the Hawks. The goalie situation is just crazy, but the team is so fun to watch.
But I'm going nuts waiting for baseball to start. I got a cuppa joe to go this morning from a 7-11 and totally burned the roof of my mouth and didn't notice until just now. Went to see Jeff Bridges in "Crazy Heart" and caught myself checking MLB Rumors right in the middle of the big emotional scene where he's at the door and she won't let him in (that's not giving anything away). Took the dogs for a walk and forgot the poop baggies. There were people across the way so I totally acted like I pulled a baggie out of my back pocket, leaned down and pretended to pick up poop.
And, you know, it's not like anything really happens when pitchers and catchers report. It's almost stupid. There'll be some video of guys walking with duffle bags, probably a shot of Lou saying something he's said a billion times like, "We tried left handed. It didn't work." And maybe pictures in the paper of guys stretching on some green grass... or playing catch...
GOOD GOD I CAN'T WAIT!
