sports new year’s day

February 11th, 2009 · No Comments

My good friend Drew has a modest proposal.  It’s called Sports New Year’s Day.

The idea came to me yesterday while trying to think of ways to avoid Valentines Day. Really, who needs a made up holiday? I resolved that instead of sulking around and thinking about being alone and heartbreak and girls on the 14th, I would spend the day celebrating the rebirth of hope: 37 pitchers and a handful of catchers, all decked out in orange and black, reporting to Orioles’ spring training in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

And so, even though I have a very lovely girlfriend (hi sweetie!) she is currently 2,508 miles away so I will also be spending Valentines Day celebrating Sports New Years.  That and getting my car inspected, but that’s neither here nor there.

I have two resolutions this year.

  1. Attend a New York Mets game at their new stadium.  I didn’t get to go to Shea during the final season there.  I HAD tickets to the playoffs, but oh yeah, they blew their lead for a second year in a row and didn’t make it.
  2. Be better New York Rangers fan.  This is mainly because I am consistently embarassed by my 10-year old sister who knows 90% more about the team than I do.  I’ll have two pretty solid opportunites coming up, with Flyers vs. Rangers on NBC on Sunday and Rangers vs. Blues on Versus on Monday.

Also, to celebrate, I think I’ll make Mets brownies.  I think I’m going to include the Mets logo and add the message “Dear Mets: Don’t Suck This Year”. Pictures will be posted this weekend.
