Game 1: Opening Day!

It's a brisk 29 degrees in the Bronx as I'm typing this, and the high for this afternoon is expected to be in the low 40s. That may not be ideal for a baseball game in the early Spring ... but I'm finding it difficult to care, given that Yankees baseball is back. And this is your Opening Day game thread.
