Kit Andrews: My Favorite Opening Day Memory

25 years ago, a guy I'd just met asked me to accompany him to Opening Day. While I didn't know him very well, who can pass on that ticket? I asked him to pick me up at the station. We were running late, and I convinced him the parking place in front of the old Red Cross building was "just fine… it's Opening Day, police have better things to do than tow this car." The weather was beautiful, the game was good, and the company was fun. We walked back to his car, which was still there, but it wore a big ol' parking ticket on the windshield. I offered to pay the fine, but he graciously declined and even asked me out on another date. Almost exactly a year later we were married, and now are happily raising three kids together. So for me, Opening Day marks a great deal more than just the beginning of the baseball season. It marks the beginning of my life with Mike.

In the years since, I've helped cover the parade, the celebrations surrounding good seasons, the building of a new stadium and the implosion of the old one… my favorite memory remains that Opening Day game with the guy who turned out to be the man of my dreams.
