Ryno was the guy I modeled my game after. He was a childhood hero. If ryno did it in a game, so did I. I wore 23, played second base, wore the same cleats, batted like him. All through little league, he was my guy.

I’m as big of a Cards fan you will find and I always loved Sandberg and Dunston as a child. Those guys just played some great ball.

Exactly.  You can always appreciate good ball regardless of your affiliation.

It's after midnight here in Georgia, so let the countdown continue:
A 2-for-1 to start Day 21.

Hey, back in the day there were 2 choices for everyday Tv baseball. braves and cubs. I generally chose the cubs because of Ryno and Harry Carey. I used to be able to name every player and position for all 3 teams, cards being the third.

Seems to be the general consensus and expectation, but if DVH or Wes Johnson has said anything definitive, I missed it.

Wonder what attendance will be this year, always in top 5, but with expectations be nice to be number 1, LSU seems to get that almost every year, be nice to have number one attendance this year, showing our support for these young men.  Lets get started, and get tickets early

Oh yes, I remember. One of the earliest memories I have is watching the Cubbies on WGN sitting on my grandfathers knee, then graduating to the barstool, then the recliner next too him over the years. This upcoming season will be the first without him, Hogs and Cubs baseball will be bittersweet this year.

Sorry for the sob story, don't mean to temper the excitement.

I know what you're experiencing, and it's not a sob story ... who we share the game with is as integral to the experience as the game itself.

Some batters you can identify immediately by their stance, Moises definitely falls into that category.

I chose the Cubs. They were on in the afternoon so I'd watch them as a toddler after my nap.  I watched a lot of Braves games too, but the Cubbies were always my team, as well as my Dad's and brother's.

Looking forward to the Texas series. I have seen us play them in football and basketball but never baseball. Got hotel room and looking forward to two days on the hill.
