Celery WILL Race on Opening Day

by Amy Moritz

All you Celery fans out there can relax and rejoice.

The Twitter shenanigans about Celery being suspended for Opening Day was an April Fools joke. And for the record, Buster is actually pulling for a Celery win. The vegetable is winless in three years of the Wing-Blue Cheese-Celery race at Coca-Cola Field.

Buster: "Sorry, I'm so excited for the season, I wanted to get the fun started a little early. I'll be rooting for @BisonsCelery Thursday!"

If you can't have fun with Opening Day, when can you have fun?
