Could we possibly ask for a better Opening Night game?
Sunday night, we get the World Champion Boston Red Sox at Yankee Stadium against the World Champion (Choker Division) New York Yankees.
For the second year in a row, Johnny Damon will be our first sight of the baseball season, stepping into the box in all his glory.
And on the mound, we get pure contrast. David Wells v. Randy Johnson. Junkballer v. Flamethrower. One of the roundest guys in baseball v. the tallest, skinniest. They ought to go on the road as a comedy team. They’re listed at Baseball-reference.com as weighing the same, despite the Unit’s six-inch height advantage. Now that’s comedy.
It’s time. Y’all are invited for chili and corn bread.
