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.
