For lo, the winter is past
Ernie Harwell, the longtime voice of Detroit Tigers baseball (and Georgia native), opened each season with a verse from Song of Solomons. I never fully apprciated the true nature of the rebirth a new baseball season offered until I lived in the Mid-West. The sun is finally out, there is a hint of green in the grass and the Masters will be shown on TV in all its glory in a week.
