Everyone! Everyone! It’s opening day! How awesome is that?!?!!
Opening day, Tokorozawa. Chiba meets Seibu for the first game of the 2010 season. Naruse faces Wakui. Does it get any better?
I left the house at 7:30 for the almost 2 hour trip to Seibu Dome, figuring arriving 1.5 hours before the gates open and 3.5 hours before the game starts would be plenty of time.
There are several THOUSAND Lotte fans in line in front of me. Really, thousands. And there’s a line stretching behind me at least another thousand people – all the way into the parking lot. And it is still 45 minutes before the gates even open!
Baseball fever; we all have it.
