It's Super Bowl Sunday, so that has me thinking ahead to baseball season (and I'm not the only one). After this game is when I really start to look ahead to Spring Training, counting the days, beginning fantasy baseball preparation, thinking about pulling a few more jerseys out of the closet.
If the Colts win, they will share a birthplace with the World Series champion Yankees -- both franchises originated in Baltimore
. If the Saints win, um, well, their coach, Sean Payton, will have won the first Super Bowl in which he appeared as a head coach, just as Joe Girardi won the first World Series in which he appeared as a manager.
Happy viewing, all. Go, Your Team! Two weeks until pitchers and catchers.
