First Day

In a park that had rain push back a championship, 2009 starts.

I wait a day for a wind-blown win for my squad.

A fraction of an hour to my north, a countdown is on until an outdoor stadium can host play.

And on Palm Sunday morning–and I thought April Fools’ Day was bad!–I got up to find snow.

Happy 2009.

Stepping out of lipogram-mode, I point you towards The Baseball Chronicle, an online magazine of baseball storytelling. My first contribution can be found here. If you’ve come from the Chronicle, welcome and thanks for stopping by! I also link to the site from my sidebar.
