So, this could be in One Question, but I like Baseball better...

Does anyone have any plans for Opening Day this year? I'm taking a radio-station sponsored bus trip to Wrigley on Monday, and we'll be sitting on the roof top of 1032 Waveland Avenue (that's the big tan building out beyond left field). Then on Friday, I'm grilling for a busload at Miller Park, and will be sitting in Section 222.

Anyone else?

We've gone to opening day at Miller Park the last couple years. Usually the Miller vendor gives us free tickets, but I haven't seen any of that so far this year.

Ugh, I'm going to be traveling all day Monday, so I'm not going to be able to watch the Mets' opener. My weekend business meeting should be a really good thing for me, but between opening day and this weekends Beatlefest featuring three members of Wings performing together, it certainly isn't the ideal time for it. Oh, well....

No opening day plans, but I will be seeing 3 games in Toronto in late April, and a game at Yankee Stadium in July before it's GONE FOREVER!

Probably moving ninety miles west this weekend. Which means I won't have DirecTV installed in time to get the Cards' opener in HD...or even SD. But the in-laws live ten miles north, so I might trek there and plant myself on their couch.

I was up at 6 in the morning watching the REAL opening day.

As for Sunday, when the rest of baseball starts, I'll be watching WrestleMania.

I'm spending Monday in front of my TV, running through a myriad of games, but most directly my beloved Blue Jays facing the hated Yankees. Over/under on the number of times I get up from my chair: three.

“How is it that I am a good actor? What I do is I... pretend to be the person I’m portraying. You’re confused. Case in point: in Lord of the Rings, Peter Jackson comes to me and says ‘I would like you to be Gandalf the Wizard,’ and I said ‘You are aware that I am not really a wizard?’ and Peter Jackson said ‘I would like you to use your acting skills to portray a wizard for the duration of the show.’ So I said ‘Okay’ and then I said to myself ‘Mmm.. How do I do that?’ And this is what I did: I imagined that I was a wizard, and then I pretended, and acted, in that way on the stage. How did I know what to say? The words were written down for me in a script. How did I know where to stand? People told me where to stand." -- Sir Ian McKellen, Extras

I won't be doing anything for Opening Day. I am however going to my 7th straight home opening day for the White Sox, preceded with the 4th annual pre-Home Opener lunch at Fogo de Chao.

No opening day for me, but I hope to check out a home game or two at the Nats new stadium.

Though Opening Day has already passed, I'll be breaking in the Extra Innings package on Monday. For less than a buck a day, you can't go wrong. Remember, free preview opening week for those who don't have the plan.

I'll be getting home from work at 2:30 (or 3:30, depending) and will be in front of the TV for the Mets/Marlins game at 4:30.

I'm working in Milwaukee next week, but leaving Friday, so I'll miss any opening days. I will be with you in spirit down at Wrigley.

I'll be watching the game on MLB.TV

We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.

I would head off to Safeco for the M's opener but it's at an odd time and well, can't get out of work early enough. I'll listen to it on the way home.

I'll be spending my Opening Day at work, then catching the Padres opener against Houston on the tube after work.

It is hard to top last year, when I got to the Tigers' home opener (after attending WM 23), then flew back home for the Padres home opener later that week.

I am thinking the Sox picked the early series because it has three off days, while the late series has only two off days. The off day in the middle is more important to them than the extra day off before the series begins, methinks.
