Mariners baseball is almost here.
Let that sink in for a moment. The hydro races, the piping hot garlic fries (or communal drumstick of the King’s Court, if that’s more to your taste), the crack of the bat and the frigid, could-be-December-but-no-it’s-April weather is all scheduled to return in just five days.

We’ll have to wait until 2014 to find out.
