Opening Day of Major League Baseball Chills Tradition

Ahh, Opening Day.

The gray skies give way to chilly weather, reminding us that spring is in the air. Go ahead, try to say that sentence with a straight face.

Did anybody else confuse themselves into thinking that Opening Day was set for Monday, rather than today?

Over the past few years, the first MLB game was ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball game, which occurred in between Final Four games. Then everybody else opened up their seasons on Monday, finishing just in time for the NCAA basketball national championship game.

But this year, MLB decided to push Opening Day a few days early. I got confused, and judging from the weather at Yankee Stadium (among other places), Mother Nature got confused as well.
