It took awhile, but it was worth it.

Screw the locusts, frogs, and pestilence that has been thrown his way, John Smoltz got his first win as Red Sox tonight. Forget the fact it ended up 15-9 with me pacing the perimeter of the house and wondering who I had to gibley punch, my man got his first win in the American League.

Big props to Papi and Tek for their efforts and a bigger sit down and shut up to the Royals for theirs.... All's well that ends well and the Sox end the night 2 games up in first place.

If anyone with some stroke is reading this I need a full time nurse with a portable EKG machine to spend the next 4 months helping me read bedtime stories to Rakes and keeping me upright.

The pay sucks but I can promise you non-stop action and free laughs.

It's not much but it beats Enron.

Good for Smoltzie...he has a way a silencing the nay-sayers. :)

We of course got the FOX game, but it was fun watching the Angels come back and whip the evil empire. Johnny Damon even struck out several time; the proverbial cherry on top!

Stacy, I kept flipping back to the Yankee game, only to feel my blood pressure rising by the minute. I finally decided just to watch the Sox game and let the chips fall wherever.

It all worked out in the end.
