Let’s see, a Heymaker, two for Albert Pujols, two for some cat named Garrett Jones to help the Featherswords beat the L.A. Overrated Prima Donnas, Mark Buehrle makes the best pitcher defensive play ever, Oakland A’s fans, all four of them, rip the team’s owner, and the Yankees lose! Was this the best Opening Day ever or what? Would have been better if the Mets and Phils had lost, but Roy Halladay was very good, and the Mets got lucky with that stupid opening day lineup they used. That won't last long.
By the way, I wish I could say I came up with Heymaker, but I didn’t. Craig Calcaterra used it on the suggestion of someone from Twitter. I like it much better than J-Hey, which the Atlanta sports writers are trying to claim they invented. "Mr. Heyward" is still my preference.
Well, take that back. For a couple of seconds, I thought about using "JC" in response to a friend who is a Giants fan. He used to refer to Tim Lincecum as "Jesus' Son", but in one of his Facebook posts yesterday, Lincecum magically became "JC." I think I will refrain from that one, as I don't want to step on anyone's religion.
