Red Sox Chick/Toeing the Rubber

Because you always need a backup plan


Much to my surprise, at the end of the 8th inning last night I found myself wanting one of two things:

1)  I wanted the Red Sox to mount a 7-run rally and come from behind to win or, short of that,

2)  I wanted John Lackey to get his no-hitter.

Sadly, I got neither.

  1. “I wanted John Lackey to get his no-hitter.”

    I absolutely did not. That he didn’t was the best thing that happened all year IMO.

  2. Dayum! I was in the park last night. Had I known you were there, I would have:

    1. Bought you a beer
    2. Let you buy me a beer
    3. Thrown you in with the pirates
    4. Charge the dugout to give the “fan” speech about winning

  3. Sorry to hear there were so many shitty “fans” at the game last night. That’s terrible that they were booing Clay. I thought he looked better last night. He needs some confidence, booing won’t help.

    Baseball (and football) is my happiness. To have such negativity surrounding my team is so disheartening. It’s one thing to lose a game, it happens, but to have the media and “fans” constantly bashing the team. It’s terrible. It really sucks.

  4. Hi,
    Had to lurk a little on your blog to see what you had to say about the Angels and Lackey’s effort.
    He’s never had much luck in Fenway, it was exciting to see him get that close.
    As a fan of the game I understand how you would want him to get the no-hitter. I feel that way for other teams too.
    You are still my favorite Red Sox fan– a true class act who says it like it is.
