What is Truck Day, you ask? Glad you asked. It is the day that all the team gear leaves Fenway a truck bound for Fort Meyers, Fl., aka Spring Training Camp.
The next best days are Feb. 12th and 14th, where pitchers and catchers are required to report and their first spring training workout occurs, respectively.
And for my birthday on Feb. 18th, the Sox will have their first full squad workout. Thanks Red Sox. Good birthday present. I appreciate that.
That means Major League Baseball is not that far away and better days are coming. And after experiencing the Longest Winter Ever©, I am overjoyed to see the beginning of the season. Bring on the heat and humidity, hot dogs and peanuts, and strikes and homeruns!
And yes, only us screwball Red Sox fans could get THIS excited over a truck.
And Marlene…I am not a truck.
