Chase_utley_us_1Ah yes, April 3rd is right around the corner.  While you may be freezing in some wintry weather, the boys of summer are getting ready for the 2006 season with a little World Baseball Classic.  The U.S. squad won their opener against Mexico on the arm of Jake Peavy.  Chase Utley put up a doughnut.

Fans jumping on top of dugouts, dancing, hugging and waving flags. During the game, for crying out loud.
