Opening Day and the Great American Game – Go Out There and Take It! (Go Sox)

Many people mark the beginning of spring in different ways - nicer weather, longer days, etc. I always welcome spring with the beginning of baseball season. Yesterday, I had the good fortune of attending the Mets’ opening day. The weather was great and the fans were rabid, and I just hoped all afternoon long that no one could tell that I am really a Red Sox fan.
            The Red Sox played their opening game against the Yankees on Easter Sunday. To open the game and the season, young Joshua Sacco performed his own version of Herb Brook’s “Miracle” speech (delivered prior to the United States’ Men’s Hockey team’s game against the Soviet Union during the 1980 Olympics). Here is his fiery rendition of the speech that might make all the Yankees’ fans out there cringe – especially in light of how the game ended. Enjoy!
