Some would say that I can be monomaniacal about the Durham Bulls.
I really don’t think that is the case.
For example, just today I learned that there is another national championship team in the Raleigh-Durham-Cary-Apex-Morrisville-Chapel Hill Triangle region. That is, a team other than the Durham Bulls. Of course, I may be forgiven since this particular team doesn’t play baseball, and has a coach with a name you can either say or spell — take your pick — but you can’t do both.
But it looks like we’re gonna have to share opening day with ‘em whether I like it or not. [Durham Bulls] For what it’s worth, if you think baseball players wear funny outfits, how ‘bout them baggy shorts.
Actually, what could be a better way to celebrate the opening of the season than to recognize both of Durham’s championship teams (and Charlie Montoyo’s Manager of Year Award)?
