Forget that stupid groundhog seeing his shadow or not; today was the sign for Red Sox fans everywhere that Spring is indeed on it's way.
After loading up everything from bats to Theo's computer to the practice jersey's the boys will wear during the early days of Spring Training, the big trucks rolled out of Boston today headed to Florida. And yes, I'm aware the rest of the country looks at Red Sox Nation like we all need a collective lobotomy; speaking for the rest of the future members of the sanitarium we all feel the need to tell you to pound sand where the sun don't shine.
Today means baseball. Soon. Next week we'll see images of the pitchers running in the outfield and playing long toss while Tek holds court with the minor league guys who may or may not step foot in Fenway Park this season. It means John Henry in his Indiana Jones hat patrolling the outfield while Tito and Theo hold their obligatory press conference where they answer about 100 questions without giving anything away.
It means winter is on it's last legs, Spring is around the corner, and the soothing tones of Orsillo and Remy are just a few months away.
It means Baseball. God, do I love truck day.
Apparently from the picture I posted it also means that along with my friend Kelly on the right and my friend Cyn in the middle that the old lady from the Wendy's commercials is a Sox fan herself.
Where's the Beef?
