No, It doesnt. (jk)

The first springer will be March 4th. That is when I will get my first!

Congrats to whoever managed to yard one out of the Willy today.

I would have to say the Cowlitz springer is the first confirmed one so far this year.

Worry about yourself Sir!

In my experience if you say anything enough people will believe you... for example "Obama wont raise your taxes" or "Portland, the city that works" - you get the idea right?

Just out on a shake down cruise when we were surprised by this early springer. Just finished my favorite meal of the year(1st springer & asparagus). Thanks for the comments and good luck to all this year.
