    Groupie???  ;D


    No, thats cool. I wish we had more than basketball in Orlando. My son is not into fishing (yet) so it would be nice if we had more local pro teams to go watch. You guys got it all. Baseball, basketball, football, hockey. Enjoy it.

    I was just one of the kids who grew up when the team first came into the league.
    I remember going to the local sports store with my father and him buying me the first Florida Marlins hat that came out in 1992.
    I went to the second game ever (my father couldn't get tickets to the first opening day as it sold out rather quickly).
    I remember sitting on the right field side by the foul pole.
    Where my father got two baseballs in between innings.
    lol

    I have since been a huge Marlins fan.
    We had season tickets following that first season up until 98.
    My father stopped going to many games after the first fire sale so I started going a lot again once I got old enough to go on my own.
    Haven't missed an Opening Day since!

    Oh yeah! Love the fish! I'm lucky I live 20 mins from Roger Dean and get to meet the players, watch the coaches working with the pitchers and my kids get autographs before the games.

    Not so lucky that I live far from Land Shark and further from the new stadium. :'(

    Way to go Eric...I have been to every Cubs opener since '89. Got tickets this year and couldn't make it so they were donated to a buddy where I will be attending in spirit.

    Without the Cubs there would be no such thing as "just wait until next year"

    Wow the Marlins Bullpen was awful tonight.
    Thank god they managed to get a win.
    Tim Wood called up the day before Opening Day due to an injury to Brian Sanchez came through with a quick 1-2-3 10th inning to get the save.

    I nearly threw up and smashed my TV when they blew the lead and let the Mets get tied up. Glad they pulled it out. I cant figure why the left the pitcher in for so long...

    I only watched till the end of regulation. No way could I have dealt with extra innings. Not a good way to start the year.

    It's hilarious hearing the "Marlins suck!" chants in the background as they win the game with a stellar job by the bullpen!
