Posts Tagged ‘Red Sox’

Happy Tuesday everyone. Figured I’d try out a few weekly recs of things to do this week, rather than making you feel bad about all the fun I had with my week that you didn’t have. I’m nothing if not a giving person afterall.

Here we go then.

1. The Hangover: So good. Just see it.

2. Red Sox-Yankees: So yeah, you may not be able to get tickets, or afford them, but you can still watch the game on TV. I’m sure by now you can all appreciate the sentimental bias this blog has towards one of these teams, but you should still tune in if you like baseball, because regardless of the fact that they’re two of the best teams in baseball, there’s also just the history and rivalry and all that jazz. Besides, we’ve beat them five times in a row now. Would you want to miss 6, 7, or 8?

3. Burn Notice: I’m pretty sure I’d love this show anyway, even if it didn’t have Bruce Campbell, but it does, and that makes it all the better. Just a smart, fun, well written show, and they’re only one episode in to the season. Just go online to the USA channel website and watch it right there, then start watching it. If you haven’t seen an episode, don’t worry. It isn’t that hard to get in to it, and if you really need to know more, just look it up on Wikipedia.

4. The Boston College Flynn Recreation Complex Pool: I work there now, so I feel like I need to tell you to go there. Unless no one else is in the pool. Because if no one else is in the pool, the lifeguards don’t need to work, they get to go on break. If you get in the pool you ruin that. And then I ruin you.

Yelling at Teenagers: My teenage years may not be all that far behind me, but that doesn’t mean telling a bunch of obnoxious 15 year olds that no, you can’t flip sideways off the diving board to try and land right next to someone, isn’t fun. So go out there, and give those young punks a piece of your mind.

More fun to come later this week, hopefully.

P.S. – Justice prevailed in my own personal Cold War. I’ll tell you about it if you ask me in person.

I’m not dead. Just saying. Though I hate format crossing, here’s the twitter update of what I’ve been up to since I last posted:

Since last post, got Master’s, started job hunt, ran 2nd Boston Marathon with Caitie, it ruled, will run Disney and Boston next year I think, Started 2nd blog (see link)

The second blog is also through wordpress, and it’s called “IMovedInWithMyGirlfriend” Check it out sometime to see what I’m up to. If you couldn’t tell, I moved in with my girlfriend.

I also have about 600 weekly recs to catch up on. Some of them include:

The Boston Marathon. Yeah I ran it

Ryan Keough – hilarious comedian out of Connecticut. Our dads went to high school together. We went to high school together. We’re considering adopting a son so he can go to high school together.

The Red Sox – They are playing again.

A-Rod – Throw rocks at him, he sucks.

Roger Clemens – See “A-Rod” above.

The Seals at the Aquarium – Amelia turns 24 today I think.

Trader Joe’s – I work there now. Stop by and visit. Buy stuff from there. They treat their employees and customers with dignity. And integrity. That’s their #1 Core Value, actually.

Steven Wilson’s Insurgentes album. It’s fantastic. His first “true” solo release, it basically ruled hardcore.But it’s not hardcore. It’s ambient/obscure pop/rock/nothingness/everything.

Kings of Leon’s Only By the Night – Late on the wagon on this one, but better late than never. Another album title in five syllables, this one is their most mature by far. It rules. Sit down and actually listen to the album as a whole, because when music was invented, it was meant to be listened to as a whole. Beautiful work.

Star Trek – Movie was awesome. Not even a trekkie.

The Ruins (the book) – Not sure why this is on here, really. I read it. All of it. From the beginning to the end. Maybe that’s why it’s on here? Still not sure.

…Those are just a few…

There are more, but I’ll try to come back to this soon. Hooray.

The subtitle of this website is enough to make me happy. That’s like 1/6 of his RBI total all of last year. Spring training is the place for him to start getting hits. Can’t wait for baseball season. Can’t wait.

Hubba Hubba. Hello Nurse? No way. Hello M.D. who's been on call as the Resident in NBC's ER for the last fifteen years. Yeah. That's more like it. I feel like a stack of flapjacks with a big pad of butter melting all over them. Yeah, like that.

Unfortunately not a post-apocalyptic zombie flick directed by Danny Boyle starring Julio Lugo and Mark Kotsay, pitchers and catchers report to Fort Myers in less than ten days. I’m excited. It feels like forever since baseball happened. I can has?! I can has!? I can HAS!? I CAN HAS!?!?!?

Thank goodness. No offense Josh Bard. And to all of the people who are upset about this, and complained about the contract offer, the Red Sox effectively got two years’ worth of him (if the option is exercised), for one of last year’s paychecks. So shut the hell up. And please don’t sit near me when I go to the games.

In a move that completely surprised me, The Boston Red Sox and WEEI have announced that Sean Casey, major leaguer for 12 years, has decided to retire and join the staff of the new MLB Network. This really upset me, as he brought so much to any team he played for, including the Red Sox. Known for always playing hard (not to mention batting .302 over his career and making three All-Star teams), Casey made a point of finding an apartment close enough to Fenway Park so that he could walk to work and get to know the people behind the team. Wow. Hopefully, he’s super happy, and Hazel Mae has nothing to do with this. ::Hisssss!!!::

 

I wish him the best of luck, and I hope that he enjoyed his time in the bigs, as well as for the Sox. Good luck, dude!

      I heard yesterday someone say that they liked the Yankees because they’ve won the most championships, so they’re the best team to like. They then asked me why I’m a Red Sox fan, when I laughed at them and explained that I root for the Red Sox.

     When I was four, I played on “Litterbug” T-Ball team. Litterbug at the time was a waste removal company that was owned and operated by the head coach of the team. My dad was the assistant coach. One night, the two of them decided to take our team to a minor league game in New Britain “The Hardware City,” Connecticut. It happened to be the AA affiliate of the Boston Red Sox – the cleverly titled “New Britain Red Sox.” Playing at Beehive Field, owned by Joe Buzas, it was like watching magic happen. To this day, I still agree that more than 3/5ths of the time, minor league ball is better baseball than in the bigs, because you’re playing to eat, and playing because you love it, etc. I remember the game as well as a four year old can, and I loved it. 

     Through the years, I saw the likes of Mo “The Hit Dog” Vaughn, John Valentin, Tim Naehring, and more guys come through New Britain. It makes sense that as they got older, and better, I did, too. So that’s why I like the Red Sox. It’s not because I’m a fairweather fan. O! How I hate you, casual fan who asks me how many World Series the Red Sox have won. You are a turd in the toilet of big business baseball. Don’t ever ask me if I’m a real Red Sox fan again.
