Unfortunately, I didn't watch any other baseball than my Mariners, so I didn't really celebrate Opening Day as it deserves to be celebrated. I did, however, switch over just in time to watch my Ducks come from a 4-0 deficit (technically it was 4-3 when I changed it) and beat the Jets, 4-5. It was sublime. Now I'm watching the rest of the M's game.

Feels good to have baseball back!
