Best Thing About Today? The Fenway Hawk

Sometime around mid-game today, the Fenway Hawk did a drive by of the infield then flew majestically back out toward the Green Monster and beyond.

It was the highlight of today's game.

Even though Daisuke struck out 8 and walked 0, he still gave up 10 hits and 5 runs while the Red Sox managed a whopping 4 hits off the immortal Vincente Padilla in a 6-3 loss.

I could try and unravel the box score, break down the career statistics of batter vs hitter, and expand upon my views of baseball in the land of the rising sun, but it won't make a bit of difference.

I live my life by this simple credo.

Some days you're the bug and some days you're the windshield.


The Red Sox were made of glass.

Off day tomorrow, then the Yankees come to town. 5-0 so far this year with Beckett going in Game 1.

It could be worse.

I'd have to agree. The Fenway Hawk swooping down to pick up a smaller bird, then releasing it and doing a fly-by was the best part of the game. Too bad it wasn't picked up on video!

They did show him flying from the infield toward the outfield during the game. Bird got a standing O!
