Can baseball possibly get here any slower?
Seems like just about 11 years ago I read "Pitchers and Catchers report in 6 days".
Oh yeah, that was my last post.
So just wasting time here, but here are other things that take forever:
Okay so now it's Sunday Feb 15, 2015.
4 days til P&C Report Day.
That's one of the only days I'll turn on the news, because each channel will have something on the Cubs in Mesa, and there'll be shot of blindingly green grass and some Cubs doing weird stretching and maybe doing some long toss.
Surely an interview with Joe Maddon.
On the big screen.
I'll be whistling around wherever I go.
Then the position guys get there which will surely bring about a bunch of interviews. The Cubs have vets like Anthony Rizzo and Jon Lester and Starlin Castro, but I'll bet at the end of Spring the guy with the most press will be Kris Bryant.
And we'll find out that one of the obscure Cubs sings or has an exotic bird collection or something.
By this time, you and me are going to literally be drooling til March 5th when the Cubs send split squads out to play the A's and the Giants.
I will have the yearly argument with my wife about spending the extra cash to watch ST games on At Bat.
I will win, but then forget about the blacked out games when the season starts which makes that feature useless and my wife will then say what good is an app designed to watch games secretly at work when all those day games will be at home and blacked out and I'll once again be relegated to loser.
In the meantime, another 26 years will have passed since Pitchers and Catchers reported until the actual season finally begins at Wrigley Field on April 5 against the Cards.
(I promise I will have figured out more ways for us to pass some time until that day happens.)
Remember back in 1st Grade when that big meanie Mary Ellen O'Connel (okay, made that name up) told you you were stupid and had a booger in your nose?
Sure you do.
It's because of her that you find the men's before a meeting just to make sure that booger isn't still there.
You've NEVER gotten over it.
That's how long this is taking.
Please baseball, hurry up and get here.
