It’s Opening Day

Verse 1:

I’ve been counting the days in the winter haze since the leaves began to fall

Now it won’t be long til the sun comes shining through

when the camps start breaking my spirit awakens to that irresistible call

of that old American song that’s always new

Refrain:

And the robin is here

the sky is so blue

there’s a band, there’s music, and the flags are flying too

The grass is so green, it’s like never before

It’s opening day … I can be a kid once more

Verse 2:

Will the champs repeat in the summer heat?

will the races go down to the wire

In April every team has a chance to wear the ring

and a rookie phenom who tore up the farm and the fans who never get tired

of chasing the dreams that dance in the air every spring

Refrain:

And the robin is here

the sky is so blue

there’s a band, there’s music, and the flags are flying too

The grass is so green, it’s like never before

It’s opening day … I can be a kid once more

Verse 3

So spen the gates and let the people in

Let the sun shine in

And may the home team always win

The robin is here …

A new address

No one loves Vin Scully more than I do.

And I think it’s wonderful that the City of Los Angeles re-named the road leading to Dodger Stadium after the greatest baseball broadcaster of all time.

But I grew up with Dodger Stadium’s address being “1000 Elysian Park Ave.” That was the Dodger Stadium address since the team moved from Brooklyn. I sent all kinds of letters to that address when I was a kid, hoping Fernando or Gibby or the Bulldog or Saxy would send back an autograph.

And don’t forget that Elysian Park, located just outside the Stadium grounds, is an amazing public area! Located near the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains, the park is unique and gorgeous.

So forgive me if I’m reluctant to adopt the “Vin Scully Way” address. Give it a few years and I’m sure I’ll be OK with it. 🙂
