Opening Day Festivities, USSM Prediction contest
10:00 AM: I’m on KUOW’s Weekday, talking about the Mariners, the Cheater’s Guide to Baseball, and all things baseball.
Also at 10: Tampa Bay Devil Rays @ New York Yankees, ESPN
11am: Chicago Cubs featuring Lou Piniella @ the Cincinnati Reds, ESPN2
1-3ish: USSM pre-game chilling at the Pioneer Square Saloon. I sign books, and trade books for beer. Hang out!
1: Boston Red Sox @ Kansas City Royals, ESPN
3:35ish: M’s versus Oakland, in an unusually important series for the M’s — if Oakland flattens them to start the season after last year’s ridiculous drubbing, that’s going to be tough to come back from.
4: Baltimore Orioles @ Minnesota Twins, ESPN2
6:21pm: Ohio State vs Florida in the NCAA Tournament final. If the M’s game is a blowout, I expect to see fans streaming from of Safeco to Pyramid/Sluggers/etc to catch that game.
7: Texas Rangers @
Anaheim LA Angels of Anaheim.
Contest: email us with your guess for the highest and lowest announced attendance numbers for the 2007 season. I will painstakingly collate them, and prizes will be awarded at season’s end.
