NOW it's officially spring. Today is Opening Day of the Baseball Season!
Yes, I know it was snowing yesterday. But today, the sun is shining, the grass is green, and the boys of Summer take the field for a six-month long celebration of Americana. Flag-waving, hot-dog-eating, popcorn-popping, cold-beer (or Coca Cola)-guzzling crowds will worship at the Church of Baseball. (And if you don't get that reference, you're not a fan. Period.) From March through October, America's national anthem becomes 'Take Me Out to the Ballgame'.
Today's creative thought: Whatever your business is, make today less about business and a little bit about life. Turn the radio dial (yes, a radio....thrift stores have them....) to an AM station that is broadcasting a game. (Any game - any team, anywhere. Majors or Minors. It's the sound of the announcer, the crack of the bat, and the goofiness of the organ reverbing through a stadium that matter, not who is playing.) Pop some popcorn. Open a bag of pretzels. Get some ice-cold bottles of Coke. Have your staff wear baseball hats - how about ones with your business logo?
Make today a Funday Monday and celebrate America!

(UPDATE: Rangers 2, Mariners 7. Holy Toledo, they won!
And as of right now, this moment, the Mariners are in first place in the American League West! LOL Because no one else has played yet.....)
