we’ll have to wait till tomorrow afternoon to see our beloved local nine “descending
the stairs from the grandstands.” From the stands? Are they for real? This
positively reeks of Steinbergism.One
SoSHer’s take...I'm already getting excited for the
2010 home opener...Dave Mellor will get to work
immediately after the 2009 season, plowing and fertilizing the warning track,
cutting seed lines with a disc harrow, enclosing it in a thermal insulating
tent, and planting an acre or so of Butter and Sugar Corn. Five months later,
the Sox will make their entrance Field
of Dreams style. Kevin Costner will throw out the first ball after
tearfully asking Tek if he wants to have a catch. Meanwhile, Timothy Busfield
will pace back and forth in the owner's box, repeatedly imploring John Henry
not to sell Fenway
bloggers galore over at Full
Circuit Clout! And remember: “Drink DUFFY'S PURE MALT WHISKEY. For when you are not looking well!”* In a Q&A on his Web site
(subs. only) Bill James writes that “I think my first favorite player was Tito
Francona, Terry's father...”* If you
haven’t yead read Boston
Pedroia profile, please do so now.* “If
it ain’t broke...”* Seal, we
hardly knew ye.* 2:10 p.m.
and it’s, uh, still not really raining...
EDIT: From the window, that appeared to be the case. But I just stepped out onto Brookline Ave and now it's raining really hard. I stand corrected!
