I don’t know about you, but I am happy that it is April.

April is the month that Major League Baseball begins, unless you’re a fan of the Houston Astros; their season always starts in May.

April is the beginning of the NBA playoffs.  Some years, Texas is lucky to have three teams make the playoffs. This year could be one of those years as long as the Rockets keep winning and either the Hornets or Grizzlies lose a couple of games.  If that doesnt happen, Go Spurs and Mavs.

If you aren’t a fan of the pro game, there is always UTSA athletics.  Baseball and softball are in full swing with multiple chances to catch them play.

April is also Fiesta.  In honor of Fiesta, the Roadrunners will play their inaugural spring game in football on Saturday at 2 p.m. in the Alamodome.  It’s a taste of September in April.  By the way, it is free to get in but parking is $5.  UTSA has to get money somehow, right.

Back to that Fiesta thing.  It began as a way to celebrate the anniversary of the battles of the Alamo and San Jacinto back in 1891 but more on that in two weeks.
