Funny how you have small memories of each Opener. Oddly, I can't remember much about the last two.
2003 - Rain delay, Loaiza got the start.
2005 Opener vs. Cleveland, Infield hit by Rowand?, Ross Gload stab & Shingo save
2006 - Opening Night, Rain, Thome Bomb
2007 - Contreras' wife serves him divorce papers and the Sox get destroyed
2008 - Crede slam (vs. Minn or Detroit? can't remember)
2009 - Rescheduled game due to snow, Wise gets booed out of the park for leading off, Thome homer
2010 - Buehrle start, Konerko homer, great Rios catch
2011 - Cold day, Edwin Jackson pitches a good game
2012 - ? I'm getting old.
2012's home opener was against Detroit and AJ had a big triple at one point in the game, the opening day game was against Texas and Dunn hit a homer. The 2008 home opener was where Crede hit a grand slam against Minnesota but opening day that year was in Cleveland and I think both Buehrle and CC were knocked out of the game by the third inning. 2004 was against Kansas City and I think that Bill Koch blew a save by giving up a homer to Carlos Beltran.
I have been to three opening days, 2007, 2009 and 2011. I am not going to opening day in 2013.
