Well, I went into the game tonight expecting a loss. But not the way they did. The bats all decided to sleep tonight – and Wake looked, to me, really uncomfortable.
Kevin Millar hit a homerun tonight. I’m happy for him…but it’s bittersweet for me when he gets it against Wake. Tina Cervasio just interviewed him after the game – he hit a homerun, helped his team win and he still sounds like he’d rather be in Boston. I wish there was a way to get him to fit back onto this team. I miss him something awful. I think the Sox do too. They don’t have ‘that’ guy on the team any longer. It’s too difficult to get if you don’t get it, but Millar was huge for this team, in so many different ways. I miss him terribly.
I think the post below this might break a record for most comments on my blog. I’m getting a kick out of Yankees fans worrying about what a Red Sox fan says over what their team is doing – which is tearing up the AL East right now – but that old myth about how Red Sox fans are more obsessed with the Yankees than Yankees fans are with the Red Sox gets thrown right out the window with the comments on this blog by Yankees fans. Hey, traffic is traffic, I guess.
George Kattaras hit a 2-run homerun (his second of this post-season) for the Portland Sea Dogs tonight. They’re winning tonight and they’re 1-0 in this series. George is the left-handed hitting catcher the Sox got for David Wells. Keep it up, Sea Dogs!
I’ve spent tonight watching the Sox game and filling out order forms for the K Cancer t-shirts…along with reading the comments here. It’s been a full night and I’m still not done. Off to read my daily dose of abuse from Yankees fans in email. Someday, I’ll write a book about these messages. Some of the things written to me would turn your hair white. Ah well, such is the life of a Red Sox fan not afraid to be herself.
Have a great night, folks!
