This is what a sweep looks like.

Alex Cora, with his right arm pointed skyward scores the winning run on a throwing error by Orioles pitcher Jim Miller in the bottom of the ninth. Only thing that would make it better would be his middle finger extended and him yelling "How you like those apples?" to the fans of the Yankees and the Rays.

After taking 2 out of three games from what seems the last 12,000 teams they played, the Sox finally got to use those brooms they bought at the dollar store to celebrate a sweep.

Which means I've spent tonight in some sort of baseball Twilight Zone; Yankees playing the Rays and while I can't actually WISH for the Yankees to win, I'm not exactly upset they are in fact beating the Rays in the 9th inning.

I think I need a shower. Or get scrubbed down with a wire brush like people exposed to radiation.

Up is down, down is up, and I REALLY just want the Red Sox to win the division.

The fact the Sox need the Yankees help to make this happen has caused me to break out in hives.

Maybe Michael Stipe was right and it really IS the end of the world as we know it.

And no; I don't feel fine.

Buck UP Soldier! We got one more month of this Fight and then the WAR.

I'd say you need to send Ms. Hathaway to the store for some of that pink stuff and mix it with the red bull. Then send her on a mission till November.

meanwhile, I'll let Josh know you're counting on him Friday night

Ted D said...

Tex, I gave Miss Hathaway the week off; I figured I'd need her toward the end of the month.

Thanks for the smelling salts; I really need to sack up and step up to the plate.

Tex said...

yah, quit yor bithing. it aint like you're actually the one who's playing. your career doesnt depend on it. its JUST a game to us. we're just spectators. it means nothing but fun.

oh HECK who am I KIDDING??

Ted D said...

Tex, I was just getting ready to ask you to explain all that to my ulcer. And my upset stomach.

And oh yeah, my shrink.

I can't stop smiling.


Ted D said...

Crys, I thought about Tex and you when they announced it the other day! Believe me, I'm smiling too!

Sarah said...

Can you believe that the Yankees have done something that we have not been able to do all season - win a GAME at Tampa Bay, let alone a SERIES??

I just hope we can continue our winning streak against the Rangers this season... 7-0 isn't enough :)

Ted D said...

Hey Sarah; yeah, it's pretty amazing isn't it? Let's just hope that changes when we head back that way.

I'd forgotten we hadn't lost to the Rangers yet; keep it going!

Tex said...

Josh is pitching tomorrow. And I get to watch. ::Grins Widely::

Ted D said...

::Is jealous::

Ted D said...

You're evil. You realize that, right?

Pure Evil.

You're not getting a Christmas card this year.
