Ready for spring to finally show up

I think I can speak for everyone when I say I’m sick and tired of the cold weather.

The spring sports season was supposed to be under way by now, but I can’t help but feel like winter just won’t end.

If there was any good to come out of the recent poor weather conditions, I may have found it.

I met a friend in Kansas City on Monday to attend a Royals game — my second of the season. The plan was to return to Minnesota and work on Tuesday.

But lucky for me — and unlucky for area teams — the weather didn’t allow any events to be played.

So at the last minute, my friend and I decided to make another day of it.

We quickly found tickets for Tuesday’s game, and spent the day seeing the sights in Kansas City.

It turned out to be a thrilling 5-4 victory for the home team, despite a game-time temperature of 45 degrees. Of the three games I’ve seen in KC, it was the first win. Another positive of the trip.

And while I’m OK with the weather allowing me one more day to get away, I’m ready for the nice weather.

I’m ready to start watching high school and college sporting events here.

And even though the drive to KC isn’t bad — thanks to interstate — watching games in southwest Minnesota is a whole lot closer.
