Don't be Afraid of the Dark

Tonight brings an end to Daylight Savings Time. A sad occurrence in and of itself as daylight seems to be the only thing Americans have the ability to save these days.

This antiquated ritual of "fall back" makes our already too short days seem even shorter and is a harbinger of the many long and cold nights ahead. The only upside is that we all (well, except for those holdouts in AZ) get an extra hour of much needed sleep tonight.

So when you're driving to and from work in the dark come Monday, just remember that there are only 106 days until pitchers and catchers report. But until Spring Training comes around to impart optimism for a new season seemingly full of possibilities, let's chill (literally) and try not to be afraid of the darkness outside...or within ourselves.

As the fellow below once said, "The big lesson in life, baby, is never be scared of anyone or anything."
