Insomniac Open Thread: Baseball's Opening Day Arrives With A Wimper

The first night of baseball is a travesty this year, an abomination. Not only was the first regular season opener played in Japan last week, America's past-time officially played their opening game Wednesday night, headlined by the "Miami Marlins" and St. Louis Cardinals. Tradition gave way to economics, internationalism and Seligism, ruining a tradition that so many baseball fans remember.

Not for Reds fans though. We'll still have the opportunity to celebrate opening day with our parade and our regular season opener at 4:00 PM, on a Thursday, on ESPN 2 (if you can't head downtown). Miami. St. Louis. Really?

I may be the only San Antonio Spurs fan (or even NBA fan) on this site. But after beating the Celtics tonight, along with the Heat taking out the Thunder, San Antonio is only one game behind the mainstream media's lovefest of OKC. BTW, anyone notice that the Thunder/Heat game headline SportsCenter, not Major League Baseball's opener? Talk about a whimper. At least the NFL will hook us up with a pregame Bon Jovi concert.
