"And now, here's the Voice of the Royals; MLB Hall of Fame announcer, Denny Mathews."
It happens every year on Opening Day; the national anthem and presentation of the colors brings tears to my eyes. I stop for a moment and am thankful to be an American.
The other thing I love about Opening Day is that it's one day a year in which it's guaranteed the Royals won't begin the day in last place. That's a pretty rare day in baseball.
And for tonights game, good to see Florida and Ohio State get a taste of success. Gotta' be happy for two schools with a such a small recruiting base, tiny athletic budget and no success in other sports. Good for the little guys...
