reds opening day

Hope springs eternal in the human breast;
Man never is, but always to be blessed:
The soul, uneasy and confined from home,
Rests and expatiates in a life to come.

–Alexander Pope, from An Essay on Man

The start of spring always coincides with the opening of a new baseball season. It’s quite appropriate.

After all, isn’t it the virtue of hope that guides every baseball fan in their longing for a World Series championship to conclude the season?

Yesterday I had the opportunity to experience this hope in a new found way by attending the Cincinnati Reds opening day game.

I’m a life-long fan of the Reds, but have never made it to this ceremonious celebration of the city of Cincinnati, spring, and all things baseball. Until yesterday.

With a come-from-behind three run victory, I definitely concur that hope springs eternal for the upcoming baseball season!
