I have been to three opening days, 2007, 2009 and 2011. I am not going to opening day in 2013.
I was just naming home openers, but you are right. Didnt Marte blow the 2003 opener in KC or am I mixing up 04 & 03? The memory that sticks with me from the 08 opener in Cleveland was Alexei in centerfield.
