After Tip Off Tuesday & Opening Day

Concatulations to all my friends who are Florida fans, but I gotta say, I'm bummed. Although my heart is with the Boilermakers (my daddy went to Purdue), after them, I root for THE Ohio State University.
This is a picture of mommy and me getting ready for the game. I assured I was on the card table to try and snag any of the guests snacks while they were distracted by the great game (alas, I got nothin'). I'm focusing on the OSU postcard Tiki & Riley sent me when they were my Secret Paws. I was hoping it would bring us luck...but it was not to be.

For those concerned, I did get lotsa chin scritches and an extra bit of stinky goodness before bed to make up for the loss.

The extra treatsies and pets I got when the beans got home from hunting and gathering was to celybrate the big Cincinnati Reds win on Opening Day! The Reds beat the Chicago Cubs 5-1 before 42,720 fans on a gorgeous Spring day at Great American Ball Park. Mommy and daddy weren't able to go this year because of work, but "next year..." they said.

The Reds line dup for the National Anthem.

We guess it's Florida's year. Sigh.

Onwards to Baseball Season!! Mommy & Daddy actually got to watch the Cleveland Indians opener against the Chicago White Sox on TV, because they were both home sickie. They won too. 12-5. Congrats to both of our teams.

Ah yes... opening day. I had forgotten about it.

This surely means that spring is here!

I don't know much about baseball, but it's better than basketball. I know this because my human doesn't watch basketball. When he watches baseball, I can curl up in his lap and get Love and Affection. Anything that helps me get that is OK by me.
