By this time today I expected to be starting the coals in the Coliseum parking lot. Oh, the opening day parking lot, a carnival of glorious green and gold, East Bay vibe on full display, victorious even before the first pitch is thrown.
Alas, that day is not today. Nevertheless, we A’s fans should try to summon up just a little bit of that Oakland spirit today, feel the new season, even if the new season ain’t quite feeling us yet. And when the Opening Day does arrive, whenever that may be, we can celebrate making it through…up to and including the first pitch."Kraut will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no kraut."
