Sure gas is nearly $4.00 a gallon in most parts of the country, North Korea is threatening to nuke the West Coast and the number of Americans on some form of welfare estimated is at an estimated 100 million, but on a day like today all feels right with the world.

That's right- it's opening day for the 2013 baseball season [technically the season began on March 31st with a Sunday night mathcup between the Texas Rangers and Houston Astros- NANESB]. Some teams have made no bones about the fact that they're in the midst of a lengthy and rebuilding process while others will take fans by surprise and exceed expectations and some just want to wipe the slate clean from a disastrous 2012 season.

No matter where your loyalties lie, I think fans of any age can appreciate the late Ernie Harwell's speech from his 1981 induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame, and this is how I tend to celebrate the start of the MLB season.
