Our own little "unofficial" start to spring...
I thoroughly enjoyed "Truck Day 2013". flower

In Boston, nobody cares about whether or not the groundhog sees its shadow come Feb. 2. Instead, the coming of spring announces itself on 18 wheels of a JetBlue-sponsored Big Rig on Red Sox Truck Day.

Amidst below-freezing temperatures on early Tuesday morning, Red Sox fans came out to Fenway in full force to send their team—or rather their team's equipment—off to Spring Training in sunny Fort Myers.

The truck was stocked full of everything from bats, balls (20,400 to be exact) and gloves to more serious items like 20 cases of bubble gum and 60 cases of sunflower seeds.

But it's about so much more than a truck.

Just like singing "Sweet Caroline" in the bottom of the eighth or signing Pesky's Pole, Truck Day has grown into its own tradition unique to Red Sox Nation, now 15 years strong.

It marks the unofficial kickoff of Spring Training, but this year in particular, also a fresh start. The horrendous 2012 performance of the Red Sox didn't deter fans from coming out for the first step of the 2013 season. Truck Day served as the beginning of a hopeful turning point led by new manager John Farrell.

"And I understood that in an age where there was so much ego, because of the camera, that it was very important to look for that kind of player, ... I began to look for the kind of player that doesn't need his ego fed by stardom, but will do what he's supposed to do because he knows the game and loves the game, and will do the job the right way even if someone else gets the glory." ~ Bill Belichick

This years edition of the Red Sox features many veteran free agent signee's that were acquired as stop gap players while the team developes it's minor league talent. I don't think much is expected from this group but if some of these vets can find their groove again, who knows?

Keep your eye on Mike Napoli. I think he's the next Nick Esasky. Plus I got word from a close friend that he's drinking the "elixir of life". ; )
