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..
AND
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.

Yawn



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?

Peyton?
Matt Flynn/Ryan?

San Deigo? -Just kidding.

and


TeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeBOW


I thought this THIS would get more attention than the rodney king case..
i had to teach my special ed class about racism, oh boy..

All of your s,enarios take place over a season..
opening day mlb is like playoffs..
ace vs ace.. Awesome


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?

NFL?

Anyone still talking Saints/Packers?


Ha ha froggie makes a comeback!

Bottom line, theres more magic on opening day baseball than nfl!

I eagerly await the last out in the last game of the WS so baseball can go back to hell for the offseason....

Yup. Baseball is just something to do until hockey and football seasons start up again.

a game, like playing cards just to pass the time....

does kinda make any argument suspect if that is why he looks forward to the NFL doesn't it?
not part of the discussion but I actually look forward more to the college football season but I do love the NFL.

baseball starts with a massive explosion because otherwise, no one will notice that someone started playing a game...

Opening day in football is what I look forward to since the clock shows zeros in the Super Bowl. Baseball is cool on opening day, I agree, but the fact that there's only 16 games in football just makes it more compelling, every game means something. Yes, I know, in baseball it does, too, but not nearly as it is in football. A vote for the right...
