"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the season of wisdom, it was the season of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope..."
Wow, that Mr. Dickens could turn a phrase... but I digress. Hope springs eternal. Unfortunately knees and ankles do not.
So looking back on watching interleague play the year that Bonds & Tejada both won MVP honors, I wonder about this year's titanic matchup, Bonds vs. Thomas. Dueling legends of future Hall of Fame celebrity. So will we be delighted by two elder statesmen of the game, crushing balls to fans delight, or vaguely embarassed that these two old men are trotted out; a dim reflection of past greatness?
I personally will have to wait until June 19th to see our A's, but you few, you lucky few, who have such a short wait 'til spring, can share your thoughts and hopes! Go A's!
