Today is The Ballclub's second birthday. As always, we would like to step back from the state of our team for a moment and Thank everyone who has stopped by here for a read, or a kind word, and everyone who has befriended us on Facebook and MySpace.
The second season for The Ballclub was difficult, and that's being kind. For myself, and for just about all of my Blogging Bretheren, the 2008 season became less about the games themselves, and more about the sanity of an entire fan base. There were enjoyable moments, and there were certainly great games. But as a whole, there wasn't much relaxation. In many ways, I think many of us expected things to end the way they did. That didn't make it any easier when it happened, but if nothing else, this particular team had conditioned us to expect the absolute gut-wrenching worst, no matter how much we were led to believe otherwise. Much of the same team is expected to return for the 2009 season, the same old team in a brand new ballpark.
It may seem like a recycled comment, but maybe the third year of The Ballclub will be the charm.
