Only four more days, Reds fans. How excited are you?

I’m excited, but I must concede that I made a mistake. For several years in a row, I took the day off and attended the Opening Day game in Cincinnati. This year, I planned to watch the game on television…but I forgot to clear my schedule.

It gets worse. Not only am I working that afternoon, but I have particularly heavy docket…and I’m going to be at a courthouse that’s almost an hour away from home. I’m doomed to miss the game. The best I can hope is to be able to listen to some of the game on the radio, at some point (and watch the game on DVR later).

So I’m excited … and sad. Poor me.
