Spring Training Hype-Ometer, Week 1

by Ryan "petzrawr" aka The Pet Razor

As you know, we're all about innovation here on the bolg. So here's ZWR's hype man Ryan with a new feature we like to call the Spring Training Hype-Ometer. Be sure to stay tuned to ZWR all spring training long as we continue to bring you the world's most face breakingest coverage of all the SERIOUS events taking place in Clearwooder.

Take it away, Ryan: 

Holy crap, you guys. It’s finally here. You guys! IT’S HERE! IT’S SPRING TRAINING! And as you may be able to tell, I am pretty freakin’ hyped about it. It’s been kind of a rough week for me, so pitchers and catchers reporting couldn’t have come at a better time. Seeing actual baseball players on an actual baseball field is like seeing an old friend for the first time in a long time. It just makes me feel good. So, so good you guys. I am pretty freakin’ hyped.
I’d be hyped just because, you know? But then Roy Halladay rolls up to the Carpenter Complex in a roadster he restored this off-season (Editor's note: on top of wrestling anacondas... no big deal.)? GTFO. I can’t even handle that picture. LOOK AT THAT SMILE!
I could look at pictures of the team working out all day. And I have been. Because it’s the 2012 Philadelphia Phillies, you guys. We’re so close. It’s almost here.
Man, you know what I just realized? I’m so hyped for pitchers and catchers reporting that I haven’t even had time to get hyped for my own trip down to Clearwater in March. I’m so freakin’ hyped for some Scrapple Benedict and those baskets full of free pastries at Lenny’s. OH MAN! And drinking Yuenglings on the beach while scarfing down some grouper at Frenchy’s Rockaway. UGH. I am so hyped I can’t stand it!

I guess what I am trying to say here is that I am pretty freakin’ hyped for spring training, you guys.

  1. There is nothing better than a Roy Halladay ear to ear grin.

  2. Only 45 days until opening day, you guys.
