It's akin to a miracle that we survived the boredom, but we did.
The stretch from mid-October to early April is a long one. Thank goodness there are holidays, family gatherings and what not to fill the void. Because the waiting is hard.
Our sojourn is over, though. And none too soon. The three of us are anxious. The famiily room couch has been empty, and the popcorn popper silent. And our car hardly knows the way to Anaheim anymore.
But no more. Baseball season is here!
Our champion Angels beat the Dodgers in three straight games over the weekend in the annual pre-season kick-off "freeway series."
Life is sublime once again.
