Interesting

25 Mar

I must really be tapping into something here. Yesterday Boston.com and UniversalHub.com linked to me, driving more than 500 hits to this very blog. Now today, Globe critic Ty Burr is linking here from his own blog on Boston.com. I guess I must be doing something right. And thanks to someone named Brian Keaney for alerting Ty about my post.

That’s One

25 Mar

One win for the Sox.
One come-from-behind win for the Sox.
One lame performance by Dice-K.
One game where J.D. Drew’s absence was felt (in a good way).
One game where Manny came through twice.
One game where Ellsbury made an awesome catch.
One crucial bunt by Pedroia.
One playing of “Shipping Up to Boston” to greet Pap.

One down, many more games to go. Woo hoo!!! Baseball’s back!

I Love the Sight of Red Sox in the Morning

25 Mar

There’s something really odd about waking up early (early for me, anyway. I wasn’t going to wake up at 6am) to watch baseball being played live in Japan. But at the same time, I woke up just in time to see the Sox come back in sixth inning, and that was pretty cool. It was fun seeing Pedroia and Manny get big hits. Funny to see that Dice-K must have sucked if the team was losing when I turned on the TV (jeeeez, some things don’t ever change — even in his home country). And just good to see the team on the field, playing a close game (too close), that actually counts. All is right with the world again: baseball is back. And hey, it sure does beat watching V.B. and Kim Carrigan.
