03/31/08: RAYS at Baltimore

TV: OVER THE AIR/ION Ch. 66

Introductory Note:

Welcome everyone, this is opening day, and this is our first ever game thread with SBN2.0. Ironically the feel of newness translates over to our team, we've moved forward. This season is about now and later, win enough and we'll get our new ballpark, perhaps save our ace, and maybe gain some new readers (fans) along the way. The title simply means "Start of the future" in Latin, and I think it fits what we have going on here.

Final Thoughts:

One of the cool things we can do is schedule game threads to post on their own, meaning no longer is a rushed post needed, so here's an idea, let's play a game inside of the game. Essentially all you have to do is pick a player before the first pitch (today 3:05) and after the game we'll open up a MVP poll, if your player wins you get a point, at the end of a week we'll post the standings. (Note: if one of you guys wants to handle this, just email me or let me know).

So, yeah, we're nearing game time, and I have but two requests from you guys today:

1) Enjoy

2) Let's blow this damn server up! 1,000+ comments today folks, you don't even have to refresh anymore.
