Well, it appears that I drew the short end of the stick I'm so excited about being chosen to wake up in the middle of the night to watch baseball and run a game thread about it!
I actually couldn't be much more excited. Normally. at this time, I live for that first Sunday night baseball game; where it could be the Royals vs. the Devil Rays and I'd STILL be excited about it; it gives me my baseball fix, even if it's not the A's opening day yet.
The year is different. Not only are the A's the first team to take the field, but it's a full week earlier than usual! Who cares about tiny details such as game times?
And by game times, I mean 3AM on Tuesday morning. Yes, the middle of the night. And I've been around this site long enough to know that it's not just me that is crazy about the A's, so something tells me I won't be game threading by myself.
I have two questions. Is there anyone reading AN right now who is in Japan? And will you be up for the first game of the season?
