I was sitting right here writing about my thoughts on Pac-Man when my Dad called me to see if I was watching the game. He doesn't even like baseball. He's only been watching it for the past week because he knows I like baseball. Well, because he knows I like the Sox. When he told me it was tied up, I thought he was joking. And it was a really bad joke. And my Dad is not a jokester. Knowing that; I knew he was serious.
Thank you, Dad, for making sure that I saw one of the greatest comebacks in MLB history!!
I will be at Ramparts tomorrow night for game 6. I will have on my blue shirt and my blue hat. I will be drinking beer from my right and smoking cigs from my left. I will never cross my legs above the ankle. I will only do shots with my left hand. I will "air-kiss" from the left. "High-Fives" with left hand only. "Hip-checks" will also only be done on the left.
And the Sox will win because all of my neurotic, superstition-driven," can't-stand-if-the-Phillies-win"; - dribble actually means something!
ps...I'm nothing if not superstitious

Turn the lights out...
I don't know about you; but, I am so happy that Pac-Man is gone. At least for 4 weeks. Maybe more. I was surprised that Dallas opted not to discipline him over his latest indiscretion. I was not surprised that Goodell did.
I understand Dallas' position. They didn't necessarily try to sweep it all under the rug. "They" (whoever They are. GM? Head Coach? Legal team?) did an internal investigation and determined that Jones did not break any of the conditions of his contract. Simply because no charges were filed.
I'm sorry. I have to interrupt this post to say: GO SOX!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Just won 8-7 bottom of the 9th!!!!!!!

I've switched up my strategy. I am not watching the Sox game tomorrow night. I will not be taking phone calls or texts during that time. I'm going to wear my blue hat all night. Reverse psychology; if you will.
Wow...I obviously need to re-think my priorities.
I am convinced...
If you happen to be walking behind me and see this guy:
Shoot him because I think he's trying to hurt me.
It's the only explanation I can come up with.

I've taken a deep breath. And a thought came to mind. Danny Ford sitting in a mountain retreat somewhere with a big cigar in his teeth. He just watched the game. And he's saying, "They should have never let me go, ya'll!" Of course, if he were still the coach; we would be on some type of probation. And this game probably wouldn't have been televised :)
peace....whatever that means

I do know this: When a team comes to Death Valley; they are READY. No matter who you are or how good you are; you are READY. It is considered a Coup to be able to beat the Tigers in Death Valley. The scary turtles from Maryland were all about that. And it's flattering. To be a team that other teams really want to beat at your house. Maryland did it. And we served them breakfast. Southern Hospitality.....
We are at Wake Forest on Thursday. Go Tigers!!!
Here's hoping that E. Manning, Jacobs, Owens, Barber, F. Jones, Chambers, & D. Jackson all stay healthy!
Btw...I picked up Chris Henry off waivers....Hmmm....what do you think??
I know, I know.....
I've been a slack-ass. The Sox have been through the first round of the play-offs and I have said nothing here. In my defense; a very good friend of mine got married on Sunday. I have been doing Bachelorette things for the last several days. I had a glass or two.
I watched the game Wednesday with my pink Sox hat that was deemed lucky last season. (I wore it for all the play-off games and the World Series.) I did go to the Best Red Sox bar (where I work) to watch the Friday night game. I wore my pink Sox hat and they won. I dropped the ball on Sunday. That was wedding day. I was home in time for the last couple innings and I Fell Asleep! Without my hat!! Sacrilege! And they lost :(
Last night I watched every play (with my hat) to see Bay put his hand on Home Plate to win the game 3-2!!! And I do have to say that I really like Bay. He's what we got in the three-team trade when we let loose Manny. Whom I adore.
By the way: Varitek SO had control of the ball on that out!
So, now we're looking at meeting the Rays in Tampa on Friday. I can't decide how I feel about it. I'm hoping it isn't crazy. The Sox/Rays meetings have been kinda volatile this season.
In either case; the craziest scenario is if the Sox meet the Dodgers in the World Series. I know that's what alot of people are hoping for. Damn.....what a game that would be!!
I love that dirty water.........
