Wednesday, March 31, 2004 favorite time of year. Early spring: when the lawn is plush green and you don;t even have to water it. all the trees and flowers are blooming & every once in a while in the pacific northwest we get a sunny day. But most! Everyone gets excited when spring training opens, but to me it jsut signifies we still have time to wait. The season gets under way in less than a week and now I am excited. My beloved Dodgers are still going to be a terrible team on offense, but it still should be fun to watch.
