Red, Andy, and A Prayer.

I find I'm so excited, I can barely sit still or hold a thought in my head. I think it's the excitement only a free man can feel, a free man at the start of a long journey whose conclusion is uncertain. I hope I can make it across the border. I hope to see my friend, and shake his hand. I hope the Pacific is as blue as it has been in my dreams. I hope.

Tim Wakefield is 11-3.

I hope he pitches in the All-Star Game.

I hope Joe Mauer has 3 passed balls.

I hope Derek Jeter trips over second base and sprains his groin.

I hope.

And hope, like Red say's, is a good thing.

I really need a nap.

Love this movie! Love Mr. King,Mr. Freeman! One of my favorite movie endings of all time! And yes, I love Melbourne,FL's own Timmeh Wakefield!

Becky, it's without a doubt one of the best of all time. And Timmeh is an 11 game winner and going to the All-Star game; life is funny sometimes.

Ok, you can't use it anymore. That's it. You've used it too much. Now, you must use something else.

There is no statute of limitations on Shawshank. I think it's in the Constitution.

Or something.

Last night's game ROCKED--especially from the bleachers. We were pretty darned loud when Wake left the game. Oh, and the whole rest of the time, too. Super fun!!!

Penny, that is awesome you were at the game last night! And Wake was fantastic.
