Hope Springs Eternal

“Listen sweetie, boys like to hit balls with sticks when the snow melts.  I don’t know why.”  — Angela Montenegro to Dr. Brennan on Bones.

Pitchers and catchers.  Spring training.  Everyone’s undefeated and spring is just around the corner.  Even for non-believers, baseball helps us mark the end of winter.  It may very well be apocryphal, but someone once replied, when asked why he no longer followed sports, February.  

The worst month of winter — and the sports year — is nearing its end.  Pretty soon we’ll have conference basketball tournaments, Selection Sunday, March Madness and, finally Opening Day.

And then we’re off:  NHL and NBA Playoffs, The Masters, The French Open, The Kentucky Derby.  Can’t come soon enough.  Oh yeah, and more snow predicted for later this week.
