Red Sox Chick/Toeing the Rubber

Because you always need a backup plan

I love a parade!

Mike Lowell waving at us!!! (With Alex Cora)  Taken by me! 

I have two bosses. The one who went to Colorado and so graciously sent me something to post here, and the other, who has been sending me Red Sox stuff via email for the past week or so and ‘debriefed’ with me every morning after each game. Yesterday, I went into work early (and left early for the parade!) and my second boss, pretty much, didn’t expect me to do anything but talk about the Red Sox. So, yes, I realize how special I have it. 🙂

Yesterday was great. Lots of screaming (I feel like I’ve smoked a pack of cigarettes and I don’t smoke!) and just general merry-making. I’ll have a detailed ‘report’ of the events of the day later on tonight, but, for now, I just have to say thank you to my friends Kelly and Cindy for being so much fun (and so crazy with me)! We had a blast – and we even got ourselves on Kyle Snyder’s video (hey, it helps when you bring a poster-sized version of a picture of the guy!).

The dinks on Comcast Sports Net were complaining about the Rolling Rally being ‘done’ and saying the Sox should stop at a designated place and ‘talk’ like the Patriots did. I have to disagree. First off, the Sox have only done this twice…it’s way too soon for it to be ‘old’. And did you see how many people were at City Hall Plaza, even though they knew the Sox weren’t going to stop and ‘talk’? Luckily, Kelly scoped out a spot for us on Boylston Street where the crowd was only two deep (and we were right in front at the barriers!) so we didn’t have to deal with the insane amount of people who came out for this thing. It was great to see all of the red in the city, though, and it was especially satisfying to see all the "Don’t Sign ARod" and "Sign Mike Lowell" signs and t-shirts. Way to come through, Nation!

I’m sore, I’m tired, and I just want to sleep for about three days. That won’t be happening, though, as today ‘real life’ kicks back in. No complaints from me. Spending the fall and winter warm with the knowledge that our boys did it again will keep me going!

Man, I can’t wait to buy the dvd set. 🙂
