Starting pitcher M.C. O'Connor
It was the Vernal Equinox--the first day of Spring--when we saw The Trophy in Mt Shasta. Looks like spring, eh? I've been having a hard time getting excited about the news from Spring Training and at first I thought it was just the lingering hangover from the months-long celebration of the Giants winning the World Series. Then I realized it was more about living up here in the north state where IT IS STILL WINTER!! My local ski area, Mt. Ashland, got THREE FEET of snow in the last seven days. The thermometer outside my window says it is just about freezing. The wind is blowing hard from the south. It will rain on me when I walk to work this morning. I'm not complaining--I love living in Siskiyou County. But I'm not quite convinced it is spring.
In other news, Matt Cain pitched poorly yesterday.
p.s. That's me on the left and JC on the right with our lovely brides in front of the Recreation Center in Mt. Shasta City Park. Yes, that's the TrophyMobile taking up the handicapped parking spaces. Note the fellow in the safety vest spying on us from the doorway. I think his job was to keep an eye on the fancy Toyota.
