Travis lays out some guidelines for this meme and they go like this:

2. Go to to make your play list of five songs. Choose a particular theme to share with us. You can simply post the play list, or you can add a little summary about what you are sharing.

3. No tags, but feel free to invite your friends to play along if they need a post topic on a Friday.

Well, MLB says the season began last week when Oakland and Seattle played two games in Japan that COUNTED for their record.

They then flew back and played MORE SPRING TRAINING GAMES?!?!?!?!

Not sure how that happens, but as far as I am concerned, opening day was Wednesday night when the Phillies played the Marlins in a one game series (another a**kiss by Commissioner Selig to the opening of a new stadium).

There were games yesterday also...and a huge slate of games today, including the opening game of 2012 for my NY Yankees against Tampa Bay.

I am very hopeful I will get to see the new Stadium in the Bronx this summer up close and personal.

When I lived in NY and even had season tickets, we always entered the Stadium though Gate E next to the Press Entrance. Through the turnstile...10 feet in, then a left and down about 30 feet and a left...then up the ramp

The blue of the sky appears...then the black of the hitters background...then the blue of the outfield wall and finally the bright green grass! So many wonderful days and evenings spent with good friends and casual acquaintances we got to know.

We used to play a game we invented called "What's he Gonna Do?"

In for a buck, you announce what will happen on the next pitch. Specific too. Swinging strike, ball, ground ball out, fly ball out etc...

After we did this for like 5-6 games one year, people around us asked if they could play. I remember one game when we had like 15 people playing...

What a blast!

All that said...what else could be the subject today!

4 songs, maybe a few you never the classic Abbott & Costello routine...
