To me, its got to be baseball's opening day..
This is why baseball will always be america's favourite past time..
The first 3 days of April, almost feel like play off atmosphere..
Cause you got your aces vs aces in pitching..
Then the 2s square off..
Then the, (for the most part), dependable 3's..
Yes sir, the baseball season starts off with a MASSIVE EXPLOSION/FIREWORK..
UsuallyI dont like fireworks..
Cause it reminds me of americans kicking out the english..
In England, the equivalent to 4th of July, is when they burnt all the catholics, "GUY **** DAY", when they tried to blow up parliament.. They celebrate this november day with fireworks too.. I am in the extreme minority of being catholic in England, so I find this day to be extremely awkward..
But opening day, let the fireworks ROCK and have their day..
You get almost 12hrs of MARQUEE baseball, from 1pm to 1am ET..
I usually try and get the monday off work, because it is a very special day in sports..

Oh its gotta be baseball.
Worth 1.62% of the pennant
About 16 teams are eliminated from contention
The Yanks and Sox get all kinda attention
At the end of the day- Fireworks and another 9 Teams eliminated
More Yanks and Sox talk.
Give me the NFL
Cause Baseball sucks
Hows Andrew Luck gonna do?
Hows RG3 Gonna do?
Whats Honey Badger gonna do? We saw Patrick Peterson Day1 - is his former batterymate gonna meet the challenge?
San Deigo? -Just kidding.

All of your s,enarios take place over a season..

Debuts only happen once, my frog.
And Day 1 of the NFL season, even the Brownies have hope.
What concert takes center stage of TV on day 1?
I seem to recall Thursday night NFL day 1 being almost as overblown as the SuperBowl last year.
By the way, what Day 1 game last year grabbed your attention all year- what game were you STILL talking about come playoff time?
Anyone still talking Saints/Packers?
