It was a good game and a promising start to what turned out to be a lousy season but, what I remember most of all is watching the game on ESPN and Jeff Brantley and Dave something were the announcers and Jeff Brantley was being very critical of Jay Payton and saying, "You gotta move up on a fly ball. That's fundementals." But then Brantley critizied Armando Rios for backing up on a fly ball.

My college roommate and I, and a couple other of our buddies skipped classes for the day and went to this game. We were in row O of the Upper Deck, and the wind was whipping off of the Long Island Sound on an already frigid day. I had bronchitis for 2 weeks after this game. But it was worth it as Al Leiter got my hopes up for the season and made me forget (albeit for one whole day) last season's disappointment. He pitched a beaut that day, and Weathers did a nice job shutting Pittsburgh down in the relief job. Too bad these whiny, overpaid, underachieving useless bunch of quitters never got anything else good going that season. This 2002 team reminded me exactly of the 1992-93 bunch!! It makes me want to puke just thinking about them!!

Once again Al pitched a great game to start a what could be exciting 2002 season. I was excited watching the game with my grandma. The only down side was Mo Vaughn going 0 for 5. Al always had good opening day. Just a shame; they could have had a good season.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
