"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Lighten Up, Francis

WBC, spring training…Yo, is it Opening Day yet?

Oh, and there’s also March Madness which brings us to Will Blythe’s 2010 Esquire piece on Coach K:

Hatred makes scholars of its practitioners, which is to say, all of us. We study the objects of our disdain like old dons in the British Library poring over ancient manuscripts. No less than lovers, good haters notice everything about their enemies. Every tendency, every inconsistency, every speck of newness. Hatred focuses the attention.

As a North Carolinian raised and educated in Chapel Hill, with a robust distaste for the privileges of class, I have hated Duke University basketball and all for which it stands for as long as I can remember. And my attention has been focused.

As a Yankee fan I have no idea what Will is talking about.

Hahaha, nice reference to Stripes. I feel for Pineda even though he is tough to watch at times. For those of you hoping that Ellsbury may magically disappear, Hicks had a good day in CF.

I've been watching Pineda pitch for two minutes and i'm done already lol. We need starting pitching so bad.

I guess Joe couldn't watch anymore either. Or I assume he had a pitch count target.
