No foolin’ – it’s a promising sports day

closeHey, just so you know ... this post is now about 8 years and 10 months old. Please keep that in mind as it very well may contain broken links and/or outdated information.

It’s April Fools Day (which means there’s the typical slew of tech-related gag news stories) but it’s no joke that today is opening day for my Cleveland Indians and Tampa Bay Rays … a fresh start and a new season baseball.

Ever better, the Tampa Bay Lightning secured a spot in the NHL playoffs with their victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins last night. This will be the Bolts’ first return to the post-season since 2007. I’m actually flying to Chicago this weekend to visit my sister and go see the Lightning take on the defending Stanley Cup champion Blackhawks on Sunday night … should be fun!

On the other side of the coin, the Cavaliers are eight games away from closing out their joke of a 2010-2011 season. With only 15 wins going into April, it’s still possible they might not finish dead last in the NBA.


  1. What a crazy home opener for the Tribe. My “fresh start” season wasn’t starting too well when they ended up down 14-0 after only four innings against the White Sox. They managed to make a small comeback, losing 15-10. Yikes. We’ll have to see how the Rays do against the Orioles in their home opener at Tropicana Field later tonight.
