10 and 20



10 Reasons Why I Cannot Wait Until Spring Training:

  • I have been deprived of baseball for 112 days which is 112 days too many.
  • The fact that I have to wait 7 more days is tearing me apart.
  • I love seeing the truck leave for Clearwater, but I love seeing it arrive even more.
  • There is still a very small possibility that I may attend a game in Clearwater.
  • When pitchers and catchers report, it's like seeing peanut butter and jelly together, it's just...right.
  • During the first full-team exercise, I feel like the Phillies are holding a family reunion.
  • When the games are broadcasted during the day, I will run off of my school bus and plant my butt on the couch for the rest of the game.
  • I get to see the Phillies win victoriously before the season even starts.
  • I have been told that my school work is much more consistent when baseball starts.
  • Phillies Spring Training is just a fancy term for "a preview of the 2011 World Series Champions."

20 Reasons Why I Cannot Wait Until Opening Day:

  • I'm taking April 1st off, because I will not miss opening day.
  • I already know that I'm going to cry as the players file onto the field.
  • The season starts off with an Astro's series, which will hopefully be redemption from our last home series against them...
  • I'm so incredibly excited to see the standing ovation's that all of our starters will receive, especially Cliff Lee.
  • The best thing about Summer break is the fact that there is a Phillies game on almost every day, which I never miss.
  • I've missed staring at the TV watching something that is actually interesting for 2-2 ½ hours.
  • I recently bought 3 tickets to a home game against the Marlins, which was one of my New Years resolutions.
  • I can't wait to resume in-game tweeting, it's all I do during Phillies games.
  • Each game brings something that I will always remember.
  • Extra-inning games are the most enjoyable, especially when we win, walk-off style.
  • I would love to see Domonic Brown become the everyday right-fielder with amazing defense and offense which will earn him the NL ROY title.
  • I love those late-night West Coast games that I stay up until the morning for.
  • Since we clearly have the greatest rotation in all of baseball, I've been anticipating this upcoming season for that reason (along with 19 others, of course!)
  • Opening day means spring, and spring means warmer weather and lovely day games.
  • If Jimmy Rollins is doing as well as the media portrays, it should be a great season for him, which we all missed out on last season.
  • The July 31st trade deadline will be an interesting one, and I actually can wait for it.
  • If 2010 was the "Year of the Pitcher" than what will 2011 be? Maybe the year of the catcher? Viva la Chooch!
  • Baseball is my life in a nutshell, my world revolves around it and I need it just like Chase Utley needs his hair gel which I also cannot wait to see get all gross under his helmet.
  • I love Carlos Ruiz's post-game interviews and I hope that there will be many this season.
  • I can already smell a victorious postseason, can't you?
