Happy Opening Day!
The Mariners open in Minnesota against the Twins at 5 today, though the M's home opener isn't 'til next week.
Eliza and I have attended four out of the last five home openers (all day games, which always seem to be chilly), but couldn't get tickets this year (blame Junior).
But we're going the next night, April 15, which also happens to be tax day, which also happens to be the fifth anniversary of our first date, which also happens to be Ichiro's tentative 2009 debut (he's on the DL with a bleeding ulcer).
So, it should be the first Mariner game with both Ichiro and Griffey in the lineup.
