Between the cold, the snow and the general ickyness (is that a word?) we have lived through since Christmas, many of us. . .okay me. . .have been in total hibernation mode. Now that we’ve seen a little sun, felt a little warmth, maybe we can put away our warm winter throws and get ready for spring and summer. After all, the White Sox opener is Monday.
