We did it, Kenny! Five months, eight babies and one new President later, Major League Baseball has finally returned. Y’ALL READY FOR THIS?!
Everyone remembers last season’s storybook ending: the much-maligned but f*ck-the-haters-they’re-awesome Philadelphia Phillies clinched their first World Series title in 28 years. Hiyo! Of course, baseball tends to double-back on itself like LOST, so anyone from the Delaware Valley could have told you how this season would begin: the traditional Phillies loss, this year to the Atlanta Braves and pitcher Derek Lowe. Oops.
Luckily there are still 161 games to play – an entire season of mid-day binge drinking and parking lot fights – and nowhere to go but up. Plenty of time to make the necessary adjustments. Welcome back, professional baseball!
