Totally cool – I love how Fenway looks so different. I think if you watch it on my blog you get to avoid their super-annoying advertisement when you watch it on nhl.com.
I went to the Sox game on Tuesday with Karl. It was a nice night with great weather. We sat next to a nice woman who had last been to the park to see Yastremski, in 1979. And Tim Wakefield pitched a gem. He gave up one run in 8 innings, and the game lasted only [...]
This guy’s pretty funny. If you don’t have the patience for the full 2:29, use this link to skip to the 1:47 mark and watch the Youkilis impression. Found via The Red Seat on Facebook.
Today was Truck Day. I rooted through my closet this morning and carefully chose what to wear. The Red Sox red socks that Aunt Ellen gave me were guaranteed. First try was the 2004 long-sleeve shirt with my Youk game jersey over it. Turned out the jersey had some beer stains (how did those get [...]
I’ve had multiple requests about Monday’s game. I don’t think I could describe it, couldn’t do it justice. I got enough requests that I’ll give it a try. I’ll set the stage a bit by saying that I was at Sunday’s game, the loss, the night before. That was a long, slow, game, but dramatic and [...]
For reasons that defy logic, the most popular post on my blog my post from last summer about the parrot in the Red Sox bullpen. I’m not one to argue. I people love the parrot, they love the parrot. Here’s a parrot update: The parrot has been absent all year. I saw 20ish games, and [...]
Everybody else in the Red Sox world has probably seen this already, but I’m just digging out my inbox, and I only saw it today. Papelbon in a high school talent show. It needs to be seen.
A week without a post. Ugh! Here are the excuses, perhaps as a form of update: I’ve been spending a lot of time at Lambda Phi of Alpha Delta Phi. I’m delighted to report they got 19 pledges. A fair amount of time at work. Finished Sprint 2, kicked off Sprint 3. Three Red Sox [...]
So long, Manny, and thanks for the trophies. I was at that train wreck of a game last night, and while I knew intellectually that it might be Manny’s last, I didn’t believe it. In retrospect I wish I’d watched him a bit more closely, just to squeeze the last drops out of the Manny [...]
I’ve been to hundreds of Red Sox games (really, hundreds – you do 10 to 50 games for 18 years, and it adds up). I can’t remember a game as pathetic as tonight’s. I’ve seen worse pitching before. Beckett wasn’t awful, just not good. I’ve seen worse hitting before. There were some hits, and I’ve [...]
