The old postcard phrase "Wish You Were Here" came to mind as I reviewed the latest round of Spring Training photos from Friend of the Blog Norm Schimmel. If this blog entry were my response, it would read, "I Do, Too."

I recently chatted with the guys from the always entertaining Bird's Eye View podcast. We talked Spring Training and whether it really matters. The conversation got me to thinking about Randor Bierd. Remember that guy?

Opening Day with Dad & G

Jan. 30, 2015
