Players Report to Start Working on Their Tans Day is Here!

Happy Generosity Day (don’t give chocolates, give kindness!  It’s the truest show of love.)  I’m being trendy and skipping Valentine’s Day.  But I love you all anyway. 

More importantly!  It’s also Players Report to Work on Their Tans for a Month Day. 


Doesn’t the look on that guy’s face remind you of Pat Burrell, ever so slightly?

Seemingly, I am not the only person excited about this.  “The leisurely pace of spring training has been replaced by frenzy,” is how The San Jose Mercury News puts it.  This is all so weird for me as a pre-Championship-Era fan because even just last year the Giants were in the Relative Unknown category of the world and are now in the Semi-Superstar category.  The truth is that Spring Training games don’t start for a month and the regular season is 162 games, no matter what, so I think that may be its own frenzy killer.  It’s amazing to have so many Giants fans everywhere, but we’ll see how the Giants do under a spotlight.  It’ll be a season to remember, that’s for sure.

I think the Grammy’s filled up everyone’s lame TV quota and the good stuff all starts today at  And, you know, on the CW at 8/7 C.

It’s time, beautiful people.

p.s.  Has anyone else been getting these ads in Pandora and YouTube?  I’m not much for “Together, We’re Giant” but it’s still pretty great to see Giants ads everywhere.

    Happy Valentine’s Day!

    I have good news for you. Spring training games begin in a mere 11 days. I believe that the Giants and KNBR intend to broadcast them live starting on Feb 25. I, personally, will be listening to Dodgers Radio online at

    Diamond Girl,
    I like the Generostiy Day sentiment.
    Yeppers it is the offical start of the MLB farmer tan invitational with teams from Arizona to Floridafighting for the 2011 title. Always great to see the pale white skin exposed to the elements as they sweat, strain and pop the mitt for the first time of the year.
    Wonder if Burrell wore his “Machine” attire to camp…..possibly not, hemight still be lost in Zito’s mansion.

    Seedboy- as I remember it from past years, KNBR usually broadcasts one or two Spring Training games a week. I am pumped. I miss Jon Miller and Dave Flemming a lot.

    Don’t even, Renegade. Don’t even. The whole Pat Burrell/Machine thing is one subject I refuse to talk about. I hope Zito showed him the door or something.

    Thanks so much, Mark! I love blogging here and am looking forward to continuing through 2011.

    Congrats on the Championship, and I can attest to the mass amounts of Giants ads, due to my residence in Northern Cali. But alas, I am a Cardinals fan and did not enjoy the 2010 playoffs as much as you I’m sure. Anyway, love to hear the excitement about Spring Training, and I am following it all on KNBR 680. Good luck this season.
