Baseball is Back!!! (But what about the sign?)

Which is the subject of this fanpost...

About two years ago, I had tickets to opening day, and I was so totally excited about it. Then, I got the idea from somewhere (maybe from my dad?) that I should make a sign to express my enthusiam about the fact that the baseball season was back. So I did. "Baseball is Back!!!" Notice the THREE exclamation points. And then, much to my delight, the sign was so popular that I was in the newspaper, and even in the Rockies magazine. I spent that year gathering autographs on the page with my picture, and of course, that was the year of the World Series.

Last year, I managed to get a ticket at the last minute, and so I brought my sign and my magazine. The sign was a hit. The Rockies lost badly, and the magazine was lost, in perhaps one of the most disappointing days in baseball I have experienced. The season was nothing like I was expecting, and by the offseason, I had had it with baseball, and effectively tried to ignore everything about it.

Of course, then spring training poked its nose in the door, and I can't help it. I suddenly realize just how much I missed baseball, and I forgive (mostly) everything I was on a soap box about before. What's the point? Baseball's back.  Like a little kid on Christmas morning, when the two hours before you can actually start opening presents are torturously long, so were all those games in ST this year. And now, finally, wonderfully, the baseball season is back.

This year, of course, I am in New York City, and I believe the sign has been lost in kid-moved-out cleaning. However, I would love to see it back this opening day. I am currently having trouble finding a picture of it, but I'm sure someone can track it down, and if I not, I can provide a good explanation of what it looked like. I would love it if someone could recreate it (I know this is really short notice), because what hey, no matter who's been doing what or trading who or who got injured or who thinks we'll suck this year...
