Red Sox Chick/Toeing the Rubber

Because you always need a backup plan

Need something to drink after that game?

I hadn't planned on taking any photos...but I got at least one!

You know what?  Yesterday wasn’t the worst game I ever attended in person.  Think about THAT for a moment.

Great seats, crappy game, good company.  It came out as a win for me.  Let us not speak of it again.

After the game was a bit of interesting.   I was one of many invited to the Charity Wines launch introducing this year’s Red Sox Wines:  Jon Lester’s CabernAce and Clay Buchholz’ ChardonClay. Photos taken by my friend (and friend to many of you!), Kelly O’Connor, were used to inspire the artwork on the bottles so there was a lot to be happy about.  Plus, there was free wine.  I mean, really, why turn that down, right?

It was a very nice event and I truly appreciate the invite.  Lester and Buchholz were both there with their families explaining how 100% of the proceeds of the sales of the wines will go to the Jimmy Fund (ChardonClay) and the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (CabernAce).  If you’re out and about and hit up a liquor store in the Massachusetts and/or Rhode Island area, keep an eye out for these $14 wines.

I’m a red wine fan from way back but after tasting both I was surprised to find that between the two I enjoyed the ChardonClay a bit more than the CabernAce.  They’re both good wines that you’ll enjoy AND be doing a good thing when buying them…so get thee to the packie!

Tonight Tim Wakefield gets another shot at at “W” thanks to Wednesday’s marathon game that Daisuke ending up pitching in.  Here’s hoping the win actually comes!

(I KNOW I’ve been promising a contest that hasn’t happened yet…I’m going to put it off until the beginning of the week..and this time I mean it!  Contest on Monday for another book giveaway!)

  2. Alas I watched this one to the very end as a karmic gift to my exhausted and beloved ball club. My plan is that all the energy donated by my sad eyeballs will magically power Wake and the Sox to victory tonight 🙂 Great post, Cyn–reminding all manic-depressive Sox fans to chill and cherish. And go buy some ChardonClay and CaberACE !
