Spring is coming !!

And that means baseball here in the Boston area The Red Sox in spring training now have all 40 players on their roster signed to a contract for 2008. That's good management. Their first regular season game will be in Oakland on April 1st and their Home Opener will be April 8th at historic Fenway Park, pictured below.

That Tuesday afternoon the World Champs will be introduced for the first time in Fenway since beating the Rockies in the 2007 World Champinship Series...

Can they do it again??

Who will win the World Series in 2008 ??

I'm going with the Red Sox...what about you??

Less than a month away and we are supposed to get snow tonight and over the weekend!!

Hm, I'm not going with anyone ;).
Baseball isn't big here in Germany AT ALL. I've been to a game once - Chicago Cubs against I can't remember. I think I've never been so bored in my life *runsandhides*

Tom, great pictures of the park.

I miss it. Haven't been to Fenway since '93... haven't lost a bit of the passion though.

I'll go with the Sox in '08, but as is my annual tradition I will of course continue to panic and overreact at each and every opportunity. Hey, it's been working this decade!

JT, I'll be worrying right along with you all the way to the Championship
