Today is the greatest day of the year, today is OPENING DAY

The Major League Baseball season officially begins today.  It means Spring is here (even if the Sox-Indians opener in Cleveland may get snow!) and it means that every teams starts with a clean slate, with different hopes and expectations.

However, it WILL be the first Opening Day without America's most beloved crusty old fireballer, Rapid Robert Feller, who left us all too soon this winter.  on Opening Day 1940, he no-hit my White Sox.

RIP Bob.

His honorable service in WW II is his greatest legacy.
