The World According to kcillini77

A Few of My Favorite Things

Filed under: Uncategorized — kcillini77 @ 9:23 pm

We’re headed into my favorite time of year. Spring, when hope springs eternal. I could wax philosophical about the wonder of Easter and the new life that sprouts up in the natural world, but right now my thoughts turn to sports. March Madness is right around the corner, and though there are probably only six or so teams that could legitimately win it all, I’m sure I will fill out a bracket where Illinois wins it all. I always do. This team is nowhere near the talent of the 2005 team that made it to the championship game, but as March approaches, it’s all about the chance. If we make the field, who knows what could happen.

March Madness may be my favorite sporting event, but more than that, I cannot wait for baseball season. We have our Opening Day tickets for the Royals and on April 1, everyone will be even in the standings. I know the Royals aren’t going to make the playoffs this year, but Dayton Moore is changing the way business is done in Kansas City, and the future looks bright. Regardless of the standings, I just love driving around town or mowing the lawn listening to a game. The fact that the game is played almost every day for six months is what makes it magical to me. You lose one day and get another chance the next. Play Ball!

  1. Amen to that, Matt. March Madness is absolutely the best time of year, and hopefully I’ll be needing to take it easy on the couch by that time (on account of the baby :). Maybe I’ll even be cheering on my Jayhawks (sorry Matt 🙂 while in labor. He he.
    Also, there’s something so comforting about baseball. It’s so consistent, you can fall asleep to it, have it on in the background, afternoon, night, it’s great. Even as I get older there’s something about spring and summer that makes me feel like a kid again!

  2. Listening to a baseball game outside, sipping on an iced tea. Doesn’t get any better then that.
