Anyway, Thursday night was the home opener and they were hosting the Rome Braves. This area is Atlanta Braves country. And I've been a Braves fan for many, many years. Still, it's easy to cheer for the local team, even against an affiliate of the Braves. And we came to cheer. In fact, we came early to cheer. Guess who was first in line at the gate? That's right. Your humble servant and the wife were the first two fans in the gate for the 2005 home season.

Yes. Yes, it did.
