 Fans in the right field bleachers cheer after Kosuke Fukudome of the Chicago Cubs hit a three-run home run in the bottom of the 9th inning against the Milwaukee Brewers during the Opening Day game at Wrigley Field March 31, 2008 in Chicago, Illinois. The Brewers defeated the Cubs 4-3 in 10 innings.  (Photo by Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images)

The 2008 season kicked off for our teams yesterday, but not the way we would’ve liked.  Both the Cubs and Tigers lost their openers in extra innings, but there were some positives.  Kosuke Fukudome went 3-3 with 3 RBI’s in his Cubs debut, including a dramatic three run shot in the bottom of the ninth to send the game into an extra frame.  Milwaukee would win the game on a sacrifice fly by Tony Gwynn Jr., who looked impressive himself.  Miguel Cabrera smacked a homerun in his Tigers debut, but Detroit would eventually lose to the pesky Royals in 11 innings, 5-4.  Hopefully our boys will get back on track in game two…both losses were tough to swallow, but it’s a long season!

    For the last time, HE’S JAPANESE! I understand you could care less about his native country, but I tend to think it’s a slap in the face to him and what he represents(Cubs greatness)! Get that shit right or there will be serious repercussions!
