The Promise of Spring

It’s Thursday, and you know what that means? Nothing much at all.

Tomorrow, however, my countdown to the start of Spring Training hits 7, so pitchers and catchers report in exactly one week. With the temperature today reaching a high of 16 and that bastard groundhog seeing his shadow again, I’m in the mood for the sun, and baseball certainly will give me the promise of that.

Anyway, here is a song I’ve loved for a little while now. It’s all smoke and bluesy, and I can just feel it in how she sings. And while the title contains the word Spring, so it kind of fits my mood, warmer weather certainly wouldn’t kill anyone around here about now.
