    Just wanted to say happy Opening Day to all today! Obviously the Dolphins come first for me, but the Reds are a close 2nd. It's like a mini-holiday in Cincinnati on Opening Day, and expectations for the Reds haven't been this high since I was in 5th grade. Here's to hoping your team has a good season...just not quite as good as my Reds. Cheers!

    Marlins could be dangerous this year. Opening day is awesome - it's just too bad MLB has ruined the tradition of the Reds always having the first game of the year. We're not even the first N.L. game this year...

    Think I did just hear a fighter jet fly over my house on the way downtown though. Needless to say I took the day off work!

    Happy Opening Day from four hours north up I-71.

    My Cleveland Indians kick off tomorrow - and there is snow on the ground here. I am excited - this is my 6th straight opening day (and possibly my second snowpening day.)

    Have to brag for a second - my buddies and I have a Home Opener tradition of getting up at 9am, cracking beers and watching (read as: quoting) the movie Major League before heading down to the game. And more drinking.

    Also, on Saturday I'll be sitting in the Cleveland Indians Social Media Suite - a really cool thing they did here last year and moved into a suite this year. For the crappy product they put on the field they are doing some incredible things with social media and with their stadium (turned the field into a giant snow-tubing ramp and ice skating rink this winter with fake snow and everything).

    They've mastered the marketing, now there is only one thing left to do...win the whole ****ing thing. (Couldn't resist ONE Major League quote).

    Nice pitching duel to end the opening day festivities. Kershaw was dealing early. He had 8 k's through 4 innings. and ended with 7 innings pitches, 9 strikeouts and zero runs allowed. 4 hits, although only two got out of the infield. Fantastic opening day for the 23 year old lefty.

    Chipper "The Met Killer" Jones starts off with a double and scores 2011's first run...... Braves win, Braves win.... 2-0 over the Nationals.
