SEASONS CHANGE: APRIL, MLB & NBA

April 17, 2015 1 comment

Hello everybody!

I hope that everyone has filed their taxes. 

As the old bromide has it, “April comes in like a lion, and out like a lamb,” so I guess species transformation is about 1/2 of the way there.

In my bandwidth April comes in like a basketball and out like a baseball.  MLB is 2 weeks into its 162 game marathon while in the NBA jockeying for that coveted #7 seed in the East, Go Celts!, will yield the playoff-intensity basketball that is, y’know…intense.
