Thanks to my next to oldest son procuring a ticket for me, I plan to attend Opening Day for the Cincinnati Reds on Monday. We are leaving early in the day and will return late in the evening. I will not be available on Monday, and since I expect this trip to beat the crap out of me physically, I doubt I will be doing much writing for a few days after the game. If I weighed the cost-benefit ratio every time I did something, I never would do anything. I know that I will be in poor shape for a few days after the game, but this is likely the only time I will be able to attend Opening Day, so I intend to ignore the cost and enjoy the game. A great pain reliever would be if we beat the *&*^% out of the Saint Louis Cardinals.
