PITCHERS AND CATCHERS REPORT!

I don’t think I’ve ever experienced a winter this winter-ish before. It has been the longest, most boring and depressing winter. My area has experienced record snowfall, and my school has closed so many times that my spring vacation now ceases to exist. My 200 foot uphill driveway is still covered with a 3 inch sheet of ice. Every day is gray and I miss seeing the sun. In a panic, my teachers have been assigning boatloads of work, realizing that the year is half over and the AP exams are approaching, desperately trying to make up for the lost time due to snow. Do I have anything to smile about?

The Groundhog says spring is on the way. The other day, bright and early, I left my house for school. Although bitter cold and gray like every other day, I sensed something was different. The outside air had that light scent of spring. I can’t explain it. It just smells so good, and it only happens in the spring.

Maybe the groundhog was right. I heard it’s going to get up to 50 degrees later this week. HEAT WAVE!!!

Last week was my first full 5-day week of school since BEFORE CHRISTMAS. I’m starting to get back into the rhythm of things. And things are finally looking brighter.

Today is the day I’ve been waiting for, and it’s finally here: PITCHERS AND CATCHERS REPORT!!!!!!

Ahh…It’s a beautiful thing.

Pitchers and Catchers Report. My Yanks have a lot of new faces this year who are pitchers and catchers. But one face who’s been part of the Yankee family for a long time will not be there…

Aw, Andy…I’m gonna miss you Andy.

Pettitte, along with Tino Martinez, was my first favorite. Saying goodbye to him is not an easy task – but at least he went out on his own terms. Knowing he can still pitch makes it even harder to watch him hang up the spikes. Andy Pettitte was the best pitcher I’ve had the pleasure of watching. It just doesn’t feel like it will be the same without him.

I think Andy is on his way to the Hall of Fame. I was challenged to a debate, where my opponent claimed that Andy WON’T make it. I say he will, and I have amazing reasons why. I suggest if you agree, vote for me! http://fanvsfan.com/claims/pettitte-won-t-make-hall

I can’t wait to actually SEE a baseball game again, even if it is Spring Training (where the Big Guys play like 3 innings). I don’t mind that. I like seeing the rookies.

I’m getting SO EXCITED! Spring Training is here! Which means SPRING is almost here! Which means WINTER is almost OVER!!!

WHICH MEANS MY YANKEES ARE COMING BACK TO MEEEEE!!!!!!!!

Last year we went to spring training and my nephew got Andy’s autograph on a ball. Pretty cool! Love this time of year when baseball begins.
