Taking Over Charm City

I knew tonight was in the bag precisely when Rocky Cherry came into the game. Seriously; your name is Rocky Freaking Cherry and you're pitching in a Major League game? You might as well go by Buck Naked and be in the porn industry.

Tek and Jason Bay go yard (Twice for Bay), Lester is channeling Curt Schilling circa 2004 and the Red Sox shake off the suck from yesterdays 15-4 beat down by the Blue Jays and beat the O's 6-3.

All of a sudden I'm not scoreboard watching and freaking out if the Rays actually win. I STILL think they hit a speed bump in the road on the way to the playoffs; Cinderella always loses her glass slipper, no matter how many times you read the story. Maddon and the Rays have been living on borrowed time all year; something tells me it'll catch up to them sooner or later.

In the meantime, I know there is a God. 'Cause there is no way I'd have gone through the nonsense with Rakes this afternoon I went through without the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow being a Red Sox victory.

Daisuke tomorrow and hopefully Rakes will be civil.

Or else all that money I spent on tranquilizers will have just gone down the drain.

I'm glad we won tonight. It was needed after the Disaster last night, and yes I capitalized disaster. Rocky Cherry IS the best name in baseball by far.

Yes a birthday is like another Christmas, but I'm sure it sucks to have a birthday in December =p.

I don't start classes until September 3rd. That day I have 4 and yes 4 classes. So far, my studen loan place sent my money to the wrong schol...beautiful if you ask me.

Spent the weekend in Vermont. Not the best place in the world but I did learn some construction, especially after slamming my thumb with a hammer. That's fun my friend.

Rakes not be civil? Sense when Ted?! =].

Krystle, I thought you'd started already. Good luck next month; and I'm with you. Last night was a welcome sight; hopefully more to come tonight.

Tranquilizers for Rakes or for you? It could be beneficial either way. ;) Especially with Daisuke "I'm going to load the bases and try to get out of this jam and cause your heart to explode" Matsuzaka taking the hill tonight - you might want to save some special K for yourself.

Nope, I still think the best name is BOOOOOFFF!! Bonser. Rocky Cherry just makes me want to do the time warp again. (Might be before your time Krystle, but RHPS is timeless, you might be up on it.)

Ted D said...

For me, Redbeard. For me. And Boof Bonser, Dick Pole, and Rocky Cherry; the trifecta of oddball baseball names.

If my parents named me Rocky Cherry I would have changed my first name to Bign and be done with it!!!

So glad we won last night and w/ Tek homering that was icing on the cake.

Kyle and I caught the 7th on and it was a game worth watching. Glad Lester gets another notch in the win column.
Here to Dice tonight!! May he rule the mound!!

Ted D said...

Great game for sure, JMP. Glad you and Klay got to watch the game together.

Dude, Cinderella always loses the slipper, but she also always gets the prince in the end. You ever finish that story when you read it to the kiddies?

Ted D said...

Listen, this is MY story and I'm sticking to it. In my version, there is no prince, no pot at the end of the rainbow, and no post season for the Rays.
