Happy 2014 From Section 331

Hey, all, a quick note…

Just wanted to wish those of you who have stuck with me here over the year and those of you who are just joining the “fun” in progress a safe and happy New Year’s Eve  celebration this evening. I personally am having a handful of people over  to eat, drink, and watch bad movies, and staying away from driving or noisy bars, and Amateur Night. I can’t do the bar thing unless there is a really special event occurring, and it’s been a while since that has happened. I’m good with it though; staying home or at a friend’s house is considerably safer and saner, for sure.

I am definitely ready to say goodbye to 2013. It’s been a hard year for baseball and a bit of a strain on me personally. Money’s been tight, my health got really iffy back in January and then again at the end of September, I lost a cat that I’d had since she was a kitten to old age back in October, and while some of my favorite teams made it at least as far as parts of the playoffs, the Mariners spent 2013 being awful, and the Orioles and Tigers tanked it up toward the end of the year, leaving me with a World Series that I just really didn’t care about.

This year is going to bring a lot of baseball fun with it. I am hoping to get more prolific at writing here again (with Daniel helping out from time to time, the space itself will at least be a little more active), FanFest is right around the corner, then the SuperBowl, then only a few short weeks from that, pitchers and catchers report, then Spring Training, and then Opening Day, and a visit to the east coast for me, complete with more pictures and reports from two of the other teams I back which I am looking forward to just about more than anything that might happen this year! And more Mariners baseball with Robinson Cano, and Felix, and, what the heck, even Willie Bloomquist. I can smell the grass and feel the sun already. There are also plans to bring back Fridays at Safeco, starting this week; I have a lot to share photo-wise, since I had so little time to write last year. I still take the camera every time I go to a ball game, and  I still go pretty nuts with it, so I have quite a backlog of pictures that should probably be posted. We’ll start up again 3 photos at a time on the 3rd.

So this is me wishing you a very happy new year. Stay safe and well tonight, and raise a glass to better and more baseball ahead. Cheers, everyone!

    Happy 2014 Megan! I am with you on 2013, it was horrible and can go straight to hell, so I’m doubly excited for the fresh start and excited for our Mariners. I’m hoping to make it up to Fan Fest, maybe with one or more of the boys this year, so I hope to see you!

      I will be there on Saturday, since my work schedule has changed and now I can be. 😀 Probably hanging out at Dugout Dialogue for most of the day. 😀

    If Cano is going to be at FanFest, we will probably have to check it out. Nice to see that the Mariners are willing to invest in good players. How about Tanaka???
    Merry New Year! 🙂
