Yeah, you know that dude is going to be totally stalking the rolling rally today, whispering crazy talk out loud about how “They have the Precious but the Precious is Mines. Yankees betrays us. Wicked, tricksey, false. Where is it? Where is it? They stole it from us. My Precious.”
Don’t ever let your team win the World Series. The wanting it is way better than the having it. Last night was little more than an exciting baseball game. We cheered, we shrugged, we went to bed. 2004 will never happen again unless we hit another 86-year dry spell. I want to be a Cubs [...]
High as a kite on a windless night….
Sorry, this is unacceptable. If it happens, though, he should be required to grow dreadlocks. Maybe he can get a Damon wig from Locks of Love to tide him over in the meantime.
A couple of photos sent by my Uncle John. The first is of him and my grandfather presenting a Jimmy Fund check to Ted Williams.

He doesn’t know it yet, but when he wakes up he’s going to find that one of his favorite baseball players in the whole world just sold out to the Evil Empire. Yankees sign Johnny Damon We even bought your book, you dick.
We get a full-blown schools-closed snow day in Austin like once every two or three years. All it takes are enough icy bridges to shut down the freeways. So I would have told the biggest Red Sox geek in the house about Mirabelli when he woke up this morning, but he’s already up at the [...]
The Red Sox have traded Doug Mirabelli to the Padres for yet another power hitter. Not that I’m a big fan of Dougy. He can’t hit, for one thing. And for another, he was the only player who was embarrassingly uncomfortable around the Queer Eye guys during their Red Sox episode last year. And I [...]
