Be Afraid. Be VERY Afraid.

While I was hard at work trying to convince someone with no disposable income they just HAD to have that new sofa Brad Penny and the Red Sox lost 6-2 to the Blue Jays.

And while this makes me moderately unhappy the fact it was Game 2 of a 3 game series, which is now tied 1-1 and Jon Lester is pitching tomorrow helped me realize it's just one game in a season that has 162 games before you even GET to the one's that count.

Unlike some people I realize that a great hitter connects 3 out of every 10 a/b's and if a team wins 2 out of 3 games every series it's pretty flipping good.

However, those that don't usually have had some severe head trauma or can't spell Cat if you give them the C and the T so I don't take it to heart so much.

And from the look Beckett is giving in this picture, I imagine the entire Yankee lineup is wondering who is getting a 98 mph fastball to the ribcage in a future game.

The thought of this happening has me absolutely giddy.

Even with the fact Trot jumped on Rakes head at the pool tonight figured in.

It's amazing what I can overlook when the Red Sox are concerned.

I do like this picture of Beckett.
less than 48 hours before i lay eyes on the boys.
You want to talk to me about giddy???

I'm happy for you, Tex. Fly your flag with pride and try not to get arrested.

Tex said...

Typically, the flag with Sox sigs on it doesn't get flown....since ya know I AM IN Texas :)
the significance of the flag at the game loses its affect since thats the Rangers symbol. Ive thought if I could find a smaller Sox flag and sew it inside the Texas flag and fly it there...but THEN Im afraid I WOULD get arrested ;)

Ted D said...

Isn't that like against the Texas State Constitution or something?

Tex said...

i posted the texas state flag code on sg. i think im in big trouble

Ted D said...

Caught that, Tex. And yeah; you may be in some hot water.
