Now that the Super Bowl has ended and Drew Brees is up for half a dozen humanitarian awards including "Overall Most Successful Person to Make Your Son Wear Headphones" it's time to turn our attention towards the next big thing: The Trucks. February 7th was a good day. It was the end of the Colts and of the football season, so now we look towards February 12th. The Day of the Trucks. I know a few months ago we posted a countdown calendar getting us through the winter, but now it's so close you can almost smell the sweat that is surely still dripping off Youk's helmet that will soon be hitching a ride down to the FLA.
A week after the truck leaves, pitchers and catchers report. That's 9 days people. That means in 9 days we'll have us some 100% real baseball activity going on. Celtics, Bruins, I'm sorry but you've had your cold, crappy winter to impress us with icings and slam dunkings but in less than 2 weeks the entire city will forget you and start to pay more attention the weight that Josh Beckett shows up to camp at. Personally, I've been keeping up with his weight all winter. 224. Thank you.
