With Pitchers and Catchers

It is one of those rites of spring, or at least one of those subtle hints that Spring time is right around the corner. There are actually a few signs that pop up that let you know Spring is on its way. Theres the Philadelphia Flower Show, a March Madness Bracket, your first sighting of a blue bird of happiness and finally for many people there is the start of Spring Training with Pitchers and Catchers reporting for camp.

And with Pitchers and Catchers, there is also the crazy ways that these fine tuned athletes find to get hurt. Falling out of bed from a nightmare, falling down the stairs with your luggage, and this years earliest entry, submitted by the snake bitten Cubs pitcher Kerry Wood. Of course, since they train in Peoria, Arizona, you have to wonder how many margaritas Mr Wood was sipping to find himself unable to get himself out of the hot tub. At least he didn't end up looking like the California Raisin.

Yep, that's how you know it's baseball season - Kerry Wood is injured.
The reports are saying he's "Day to day", but isn't that true for all of us?
