Goatriders of the Apocalypse

Is it April yet?

This is an immensely long spring, it seems, and since I have zero interest in the WBC I'm not appreciating the wait.  To steal a line from John Lennon, it's just a long, long, long time.

I will say, briefly, that Bobby Scales is making a strong case to finally crack a Major League roster.  I still think he sounds like an Italian hitman.

Anyway, I'm going to the States this weekend and will be bringing with me my Andre Dawson Expos jersey to show off to my friends who will surely mock me and remind me that I'm supposed to be a Cubs fan.  I can't wait.
