Sorry for the shouty caps but you know, sometimes they're just necessary. And this was definitely one of those times. Every year, right around the start of spring training, when I should be ecstatic that baseball is right around the corner, instead I feel this wave of disappointment that has me wondering why the hell I didn't plan a long weekend down to Fort Meyers to enjoy warm weather and baseball activities. And every year I say that next year will be the year that I make the trek south.

What makes it even worse is when you have a friend that happens to find themselves at JetBlue Park and they start torturing you with pictures and commentaries of what's happening. WHYYYYYYYYYYYYY?? Why must you be so evil? (Probably because before she left I said, hey, send me some pictures. Well that was stupid.)

In the meantime, I'm stuck here, in the cold, snowy, wet, damp, cold, dismal, cold north where there is absolutely NO baseball happening. But down in FLA...shit is happening at Fenway South! The pitchers are doing drills to hone their fielding skills. Big Papi is yucking it up with the fans and whining about his contract. Jackie Bradley Jr. is once again trying to win the centerfield job. And Mike Napoli is growing his beard.

But most importantly, this team has turned the page on last season and will embark once again on the mission of winning another World freaking Series!  The Red Sox have won back-to-back Championships just once in their long history—the 1915 and 1916 seasons. That was a long ass time ago. I think they're due for another repeat performance.

So because I'm such a nice person and I sort of want everyone to be as tortured as I have been today... I'm posting the pictures from JetBlue.

Happy Friday!!

PS: Thanks, Krista, for letting me live vicariously through you today, and for all the great photos!!
