In the Air

This is the time of year when cabin fever begins to set in.

There's no football on TV.  The Pro Bowl Sunday night doesn't count.  Basketball doesn't do it for me.  The same goes for golf.

Winter has returned.  Your outdoor options are limited.

Nothing at the movie theaters jumps out at me.  The mall?  There's nothing I need.

The days are getting longer, and there's a warm one on occasion.  Despite the tease, there's still quite a bit of winter left.

However, there's light at the end of the tunnel.  Pitchers and catchers report to spring training in a couple weeks, and ESPN has released its early season Sunday night baseball schedule.
