85 And Counting
Now that the Packers season has ended the same way it began (with a tough loss to San Francisco), we all need something to look forward to. Here's the best I have (because I am, contrary to popular belief, a "glass is half full" guy).
It's 85 days until the Brewers home opener at Miller Park. They still don't have a first baseman - but they've got Braun, Segura, Lecroy and Gomez. Plus, this season has to be better than the last one, right?
85 days too long to wait? How about 75 days? That's how long it is until Spring (such as it is).
75 days too long to wait? How about 33 days? That's how long it is until the Opening Ceremonies for the Winter Olympics.
33 days too long to wait? How about 5 days? If forecasters are correct, that's how long we have to wait until it finally gets above freezing around here.
Need more? Sorry that's all I've got.
