Tomorrow night the Seattle Mariners return to the Emerald City for their home opener. Now Brandon might have his Red Sox, but I'll always be a Mariners fan.
I grew up in a small town about 50 miles outside of Seattle and through default became a fan of all the local teams. I'll never forget watching the 1995 Mariners advance in the playoffs. I'll never forget how all the kids would want to be number 24 in little league because of Junior.
Sure Seattle might not have the history of New York or Boston, but the history that is there is special to Mariners fans.
It's new season. And with every spring there is the chance that your team might make it to the post season. Spring means believing. Let's go Mariners!
