Today is the greatest day of the year.
"But Benjamin, why is that?" the collective you may ask. "Could it be because of Valentine's Day? Could it be because you just wrote an objectively earth-shatteringly awesome paper on Chapter XXXI of Huckleberry Finn? Could it be because Step Up 2 The Streets opens in theaters nation-wide today?"
My response to you (again, collectively) is "NAY! Yon fools! Today is the greatest day of the year because PITCHERS AND CATCHERS REPORT"
Today is the day that hope springs eternal and everybody has a shot (albeit a long one for some) at winning it all (except for the Orioles, who have once again decided to avoid being any good).
In the words of one Roy Hobbs, "God, I just love baseball."
COMING SOON: Benjo's absurdly long, really-should-have-been-doing-homework-instead, annual baseball preview...HUZZAH!
