Spring has Sprung

The Captain doing what he does best; leading.

Javy Lopez, Pap, Beckett, perennially grumpy Jon Lester and some random 55 year old bald dude wait their turn to perform agility drills. Wait a minute; that's John Smoltz. Now I realize why he's always got a cap on. My man looks like Mr. Clean.

Major league baseball players basically taking a P.E. class should not make me giddy.

And yet?

It does.

Baseball, REAL live baseball is just around the corner.

With apologies to Jon Bon Jovi?

Everybody say "Yeah, Yeah, Hallelujah, Amen".

I have an unabashed hatred for Javy Lopez and I don't even know why.

That miserable scum bag.

Ted D said...

I hear ya, Tex.

Rich, you are a strange, bizarre man.

Rich in the garage said...

Well now that Timlin is gone I need someone new to hate out there.

The guy with the funny delivery seemed like a smart choice.

Ted D said...

Rich, you'd make a great case study for a psych major someday. Looking forward to hanging out with you in a few months.

Marc said...

Hurray!!! Its finally started!
I think its time I moved to the Ft. Myers area. Then I could get my "fix" in person!!

Tree Newt said...

Dude, you telling Rich he'd be a good psych case study is the proverbial pot calling the kettle black.

And kudos on a very obscure Bon Jovi reference.

I like you.

I want my therapist to be like Robin Williams in Good Will Hunting.

And then ill take a job at harbard and solve equations on the wall for fun.

Tek looks like he's explaining the finer points of 'Duck Duck Goose'...

Absolutely cannot wait!
Hallelujah, Amen!

Tex said...

ahem. why am I not on top anymore???

Ted D said...

Marc, I think you should move; that way I've got an insider right there.

Matt, don't throw rocks at my glass house. And Rich, Matt is my little brother and was dropped on his head when he was little.

Bridget, feels like Christmas right?

Tex, I added the new blog roll that puts the most recent post at the top; not sure if I like it yet, so you may be back in front soon. I don't mean anything by it though.

That 55-yr-old Mr. Clean, as you called him, is 41 and in better shape than most 25-yr-olds. Have you watched the guy go through is workouts? I would take the balding head any day - give me the strength, sheer skill and equal-to-none competitive edge. Don't mess with THE MAN!

Ted D said...

Smoltzie's Biggest Fan, not long ago I said Smoltz was going to be Schilling without all the Schilling; tough veteran with nerves of steel and a will to win you don't see very often. Like most of my lame attempts at humor, this one didn't work as well.
