Open Thread and Ichthyomancy: Marlins at Nationals (4/2)

I'm sure there are better words than can be spoken, such as, "the store clerk wasn't able to pick you out of the lineup". But today, these are the best: it's Opening Day!

The suffering through the long offseason is over! We get baseball again, real baseball. Our all time favorite sport is once again in season, so let the fun begin. And as always: Go Fish!

The Marlins open the season against the Nats on what should be a near perfect day. The temperature is expected to be in the mid-70s with a 14 mph wind blowing from first to third.

The Marlins starting pitcher is Dontrelle Willis. The Nationals will send out John Patterson to take the mound.

Game time is 1:05 p.m., oh why not.

The game is scheduled to be on Sun Sports for all of you who are lucky enough to get to watch it.

Ichthyomancy is well rested after the long offseason and is ready to go. Your name will be added to the table when you make your first pick.
