Not Quite The Opening Day I Was Hoping For

I've waited since the last out of the ALCS series last year for today.

Opening Day of the Red Sox 2009 season.

I was off at work, had my lucky hat on my nightstand, and my Josh Beckett t-shirt ready to be put on in case of emergency; it was the perfect convergence of all things good.

Then Ang came down with a migraine last night, which forced me into full time caretaker while she laid in bed and begged me to hit her legs with a sledgehammer like Annie in "Misery" just to take the focus off her head. I was still good, although at one point around 9:30, and I hate to admit this, I actually was briefly considering duct taping Rakes and Trot to their chairs with just enough wiggle room to operate a PS2 remote and placing a mason jar underneath them so they could pee.

All that planning went out the window when I found out that the game had been postponed until tomorrow.

When I'll be at work.

Ain't life a swift kick to the gibleys sometimes?

On a positive note, Rakes scored 3 goals in his soccer game tonight, CC Sabbathia took the 10-5 loss to the Orioles, and I'm pretty sure I'm going to come down with a nuclear sized case of Montezumas Revenge around 3:30 at work tomorrow.

Sorry bro. I know you've been looking forward to today for, what? 6 months? Well, 24 more hours, and you'll be able to finally enjoy baseball again.

On a side note: am I the only person who's computer takes 10 minutes to load all the junk on Jr's blog? This thing runs smooth and sweet until I click on RSD's page. Jr: take a lesson from your tree-huggin brother: simplify!

Don't bring me down with your tech problems, little brother.

24 hours? yes.

My access? Not so much.

I might have seen the first hour today, before work. Tomorrow's first pitch? I'll be in traffic on the way in to Wellington :(

Sorry, John. I think I'm going to Tivo it, although that never seems to work out well.
