And That HappenedOK, that's a bit premature. But we do have game action!
Alex Rodriguez was booed, then homered in his first game since admitting he used a banned substance.
Since this was against the Jays, it's just as possible that the boos were for the nearly two year-old "I've got it"-gate than they were for the PED stuff. At least I hope so, because irrational, long-held grudges make me smile.
But hey, baseball, babies!

I’ve just returned from a week in Japan, where, for the first time, my lack of interest in the World Baseball Classic was overcome—albeit temporarily. Without the WBC, after all, I wouldn’t have gotten to see Big Papi and Jason Bay staring at me from Tokyo subway ads, nor would I have gotten to watch highlights on Japanese TV news of the Japanese team beating the Australian team—complete with Ichiro! highlight.
Now can we have the real thing, please?

I love how on ESPN and other websites lead with A-Rod got booed. But then in the context of the recap they say he got a smattering of boos. Hasn’t A-Rod been booed in every city that the Yankees played for the past 4 years? If anything, what is surprising is that the boos weren’t really bad and that people cheered after he homered. I’m sure when the Yankees play the Red Sox it will be nasty, but this doesn’t seem any worse than normal in the Yankee/A-Rod Universe….

I’m glad that “And that Happened” is back. Then again, tomorrow’s would have the Braves losing another one run game. Here’s to the new season!

For a second, I thought this was a blog plug.
@themarksmith: I just love that clip.
Craig, speaking of long-time grudges, I still hold one against John McDonald.
