Opening Day Memories And Traditions

First anyone have any opening day traditions?

I have a few.


Tonight I will pop in a CD which is a mix of songs I always play the night before

 

They are

Here Comes the Sun
A Summer Wind

Opening Day (by Terry Cashman)

What A Wonderful World

Take Me Out to the Ballgame

Go Cubs Go

Fly Me to the Moon

 

For the home opener we always have a big family breakfast before heading down to the game.  Ever since I was a little kid.  We say a little prayer for a good season and good luck and head down.

Favorite Memories:

Opening Day 1998 the first one after Harry.

2003 the day after it was cancelled due to 7 inches of snow.  (looks like the same fate awaits the evil southsiders tomorrow).

The return of Ryno in 1996

Tuffy Rhodes 3 homers in 1994.
