While live blogging the game last night, I literally yelled out loud when Jonathan Van Every’s home run left the park. I was watching the game alone (although online with lots of folks – thanks, again, for stopping by!) and I don’t usually get that vocal…but JVE’s home run was certainly something to yell about. I love it when the ones who get no publicity get some glory!
I’m not going to get into how Jon Lester gave me a headache that lasted until he left the game.
Sox won. Van Every gets his moment in the sun. All is well in the universe.
Speaking of the universe, it has been very kind to me lately (with a big push from many of you!).
Yesterday I get an email from someone at Comcast Sports Net asking me if I’d like to be one of three Boston Red Sox bloggers featured on Saturday’s inaugural edition of “The Baseball Show“. Be up at 8am on a Saturday to possibly talk to Lou Merloni? Yeah, I think I can swing that. I’m quite appreciative that the folks at Comcast asked and I just hope I don’t drop too many r’s! The segment I’ll be a part of will be pre-recorded but you all will get to catch it around 9:55am on both Comcast Sports Net and WEEI Radio. For those of you not in the area, you can also listen to it at the Comcast website or WEEI.com. My part in it all will be short but the opportunity to plug the blog is much appreciated.
No rest for the weary: Sox are in Florida for a four-game series against the Rays with Beckett taking the mound against Matt Garza tonight. Beckett won’t give me a headache, right?
