We are just 11 days away from the start of the 2016 MLB season. While there is technically three games on Sunday April 3rd (Plus one final Spring Training game), for the greater majority of us, Opening Day won’t happen until the following day, Monday the 4th.
So tell us, what are your plans for Opening Day? Do you have any annual traditions? I myself, usually go to the game, but this year I think I’m going to take a pass, although I still took the day off work as tradition. I declined to pickup my season ticket package in lieu of instead simply purchasing a handful of single game tickets. I checked out tickets on StubHub and other scalping sites, but I simply can’t justify spending $150 a ticket for standing room only, and double that for an actual seat. (Tickets for the next game are gong at face value.) So instead, I am currently weighing a few options. I could meet up with a few friends and head into the city for the game. (Baltimore is a lovely place to visit opening day, especially if the weather is nice. The streets are filled, local radio stations and bars/restaurants all have events, and there’s often a lot of live music.) Or I could go to a restaurant/bar that’s a little more locally to watch the game. Finally I could simply hit up the store, buy myself some hotdogs and KETCHUP, a few beers and enjoy the game in the privacy of my own home with my dog. So what are your plans? Are you working? Taking the day off? Going out?
