Red Sox Nation has a new member



Just another reason to love Jack Bauer: not only does he defeat multiple terrorist's in 24 hours, he's a Sox fan to boot. Jack, I hear there may be a few "people of interest" you may need to "talk" with over at Yankee Stadium.

Sorry for the quick post: Baby Trot is sick as a dog with some nasty stomach thing, and he ain't sleeping. And if he ain't sleeping, Mom ain't either. Mom not sleeping means I can't "waste my time" on the computer tonight until everyone of the little monsters is in bed and sound asleep.

Whoever said being a Dad wasn't a glamorous job?

hope he feels better.I feel the same way.I think i got the flu:)

Tex said...

LORD TED you act like this Jack Bauer is real..you DO realize it is a tv show??? and he's wearing a Sox hat cos its baseball season and they need higher ratings.

hope Trot gets better...

Ted D said...

What do you mean Jack Bauer is not real?

Jeez: some people. :)

Thanks for the thoughts on Trot: poor kid has been through the wringer the last 6-8 months. If it's not one thing, it's another.

Tex said...

ted back to your predictions...I hope you plan on the Sox winning more games than predicted...cos thats way under 100

scott h said...

Alright,I am following protocal.You ganged up on me while I was in a go fish card championship. (springbreak out here) but I came to the new story to defend myself. This is not a bash the soxs statement but I have put a pencil to it and I dont't think Beckett gets past 12 wins.Hopefully someone else picks up the slack! Now line up so I can take pock shots at all of you!

scott h said...

Oh yea, I hate 24!

Tex said...

am I straight or crooked?

Tex said...

come on Hit me with Your BEST shot!!!

Ted D said...

Scott, as of now, we are no longer related. You hate 24? What kind of sicko are you? And to think, I defended you. Beckett wins 12 games? You are on: name the bet old man.

Tex: the pen wins 20 0r so games every year: by my calculations, my predictions total over 80 wins. We will be fine.

And Bub, I think you meant "pot" shots, not "Pock" shots.

I'm just sayin'.

Ted D said...

All right, I'm pissed. Scotty, how can you say you hate 24 and that Beckett will win 12 games max in the same breath? What kind of person are you? I feel like I hardly know you anymore. Job freedom has changed you my friend.

You need to seek help.

NOW.

Tex said...

i think scotty boy has been smoking that grass he sells

scott h said...

Ted you should never bet on your own boys, first you are blinded second you wont get in the HOF! 24 sucks, one minute they can track their man all over the globe then two min later they freaken can't find a car. Drives me nuts. TEX , never mind we won't go there. Ok Ted you really have got to cut your tv some slack.

scott h said...

Tex as far as your straight or crooked question, only your hairdresser knows for sure!

Tex said...

Scottie I got "in line" for ya...and you gonna diss my hair???

Ted D said...

Tex, he has no idea what he's talking about: his 24 comments alone make him unreliable!

Have a great day everyone, you too bran muffin.

Matt said...

Am I the only one who noticed Scotty's total hack job on the English language in his first post on here? Protocal? I assume he meant Protocol. And when you write Sox it's already plural. No need to add an "s" to the end. I'm going to start a blog: Remedial English 101. Bub, you get free tuition.

Tex, Ted's life revolves around Sox games, the new seasons of 24 and Prison Break, and "business time." That's it. He has blurred the line between truth and fiction. Don't upset him. It's a precarious place he's in...razor thin.

The Sox win the AL east this year. That's my prediction. The Stankees can't possibly win it again with that patchwork rotation.

Ted D said...

Matty,

You nailed me spot on except for family. The order is family, baseball, business time, 24, and Prison Break!

Waiting on the DirecTV guy as I type.

scott h said...

Ah yes the Pharisees pick up stones and begain to circle the common writing man! Mattie I bet you are the guy who doesn't hear the sermon because he is busy searching the bulletin for mistakes!!!!!!! I stand by my orig. statement 24 sucks. Did you notice how ted tried to blend 24 and business time into one event!

Matt said...

Technically, Bub, I'd be a scribe, not a Pharisee, since I'm concerned with letters and such.

Can't comment on whether or not 24 sucks, as I've never watched it. Theodore does seem a tad obsessed with Jack, though.

Ted D said...

DirecTV guy just left: Bring on the season. Scotty, have you ever even WATCHED 24? Best show on TV.

Your taste, besides in women since you did have the good sense to marry my sister, is sorely lacking.

scott h said...

Mattie have you checked my boy crosby ,I told you I was a penguin fan right? How are things on the farm? Where is Ted. I thought he was holding the cable guy hostage. I figure when the van pulls up and see the two hela monsters standing out front Ted gets instant service!

scott h said...

You don't watch 24, you endure it. I think I can route your direc tv thru your computer to me so I can get for free.Give me a couple min. Worse case you go to jail and my computer blows up!

Ted D said...

Would you stop? Please? You are KILLING me!

So, you're a Penguins fan now? I'm not the fan Matt is, so I don't know this, but they MUST be in first place.

Kaylee said...

Okay Scott from now I will not take
any more lip ffrom you about my spelling until you shape up yours and your grammer.
FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I got someone on board with my about beckett!

Ted D said...

Kaylee, he ain't on board with you: he don't even know who Beckett is. He's just trying to get me to start getting aggravated at him.

And Yes, for a grown man, he does have some really poor spelling a grammar habits!

scott h said...

Kaylee, don't back down from old Ted. He is just miffed I won't get on board with outback Jack and 24. Matt started all this dog my writing. Just because he writes poems on the back of biodegradable tolet paper for practice!!!!!IF this stupid site had spell check I would be a freaken funkin wagner also. Now , Ted how are the boys, back to eating solid food? Where is Tex, Doggin you three is like watching a one armed paper hanger.BORING

Tex said...

Matt you talk like revolving ones' life around the Sox is a 'bad' thing...why do you think I had cable last year? to get MLB XtraInnings...if I date someone they HAVE to like baseball...and everyone knows that the months of April - October where they can find me.

Scottie...ya know someone has to write these laws in texas...I am working.

Ted you need to get ahold of this Blog...your family is taking over!!

Ted D said...

What in the world is a, and I quote, a "freaken funkin wagner"? We ALL need a "Translate Scott to English" pocket dictionary.

Tex, my family taking over is the story of my life. Sad thing is, we crack on each other harder in person! Hope you had a great day.

Scotty, Trot is a lot better. Ate today for the first time in 2 days. If you could hear the noise here, you'd think nothing was ever wrong. I'm just waiting for Angie to start hollering at me to get downstairs.

Tex said...

I posted again...and hope to post my last spring training story by tomorrow.
so i can get caught up.

Whats wrong with YOU FOLKS??? I understand the Scottish language. You have be an "out of the box" thinker or live in a box

Kaylee said...

UH scott I never was on board with TED on that!

//We ALL need a "Translate Scott to English" pocket dictionary.//

I dont I am rigt there with him!

Kaylee said...

Tex,
Dont tell him to take scott away.He is like me in many ways therefore,I like him:)

Ted D said...

All right: it's well established I am not hip. No argument from me. So would one of the cool crowd please tell me what a freaken funkin wagner is?

Kaylee said...

He has me on that one!

Tex said...

im not trying to make scottie leave...why would I get rid of him??

a freaking funkin wagon is a dictionary

Kaylee said...

I got know idea....TEX was just trying to make a point!

Kaylee said...

meant I dont know!

Ted D said...

Really? A dictionary?

Man, I am out of touch. Badly.

Maybe living on the edge of fantasy/reality is not such a good thing like Matty said. :)

Thanks Tex for your explanation. Scotty would have just given me another riddle.

Tex said...

Scottie IS a riddle

and Im a woman that's how come I can understand him

scott h said...

You know its kinda fun to sit and listen to a bunch of heehaws try and explain who you are! Tex is the oscar myer winner.Everybody knows that a freaken funken wagner is a dictionary. Kaylee don't worry they couldn't drag me away with a wet noodle. In fact I see us all someday sittin at a game eating popcorn, hotdogs, icecream, peanuts, crackerjacks and drinking pops?

Ted D said...

Sounds good to me Scotty. Would it be OK if I had an adult beverage instead? :)

Tex: congratulations. You are now an Oscar Myer Winner. Enjoy!

Tex said...

I'm a hotdog!!! wooo HOOOO!!!

Kaylee said...

//Kaylee don't worry they couldn't drag me away with a wet noodle//

For you scott.It would take alot more than that.I guess i wont worry though!

//In fact I see us all someday sittin at a game eating popcorn, hotdogs, icecream, peanuts, crackerjacks and drinking pops?//

Id go for that but,I hate hotdogs!

Kaylee said...

What the heck was with beckett that inning?

Ted D said...

My guess? Working on something he was having trouble with. Sounds like he cruised up until then.

Kaylee, you and Scotty gotta stop reading so much into ST stats. They don't mean a thing. Manny and Papi are hitting below the Mendoza line: you really think that will carry over into the season?

Tex said...

its all in the phrase Spring "TRAINING" Training Training!!!!

Countdown is in the works. April is around the corner...and I see the seams of the breaking curveball coming

Ted D said...

Thankfully it's Texas, the voice of reason.

What about a dancing Knuckler Tex? You see that one?

I wonder where Oat Bran and Scotty, king of the one liners, went.

Christine E. said...

Hey Ted:

So Sorry to hear Trot is sick--hope he is back to being his hell-raising self very soon...after all he cannot start the season on the DL..:-)

Congrats and welcome the the DirectTV family--I have had it for 4 years and will never go back to cable...One suggestion: Get TiVo!

I have never watched 24--although I would like too--But I think it's too deep into the show for me to start now..:-)

Hope you are well!

And Joel Pineiro gets the win tonight!

Go Sox!

scott h said...

Ok one last time here you go.Trouble in ST means you have been in a coma for six yrs and just woke up or you got a part time job as a beer taster in the off season. Dancing knuckler ? new kinda texas line dance? If your studs come to camp with their heads on straight, than the average joes can get their mojo going! Always has always will be the breakfast of champions. I'm going into coaching.

Kaylee said...

//Kaylee, you and Scotty gotta stop reading so much into ST stats. They don't mean a thing. Manny and Papi are hitting below the Mendoza line: you really think that will carry over into the season?//

We are all about trying to raise a reckus here thats why we do it!I know they dont count!

Kaylee said...

//Im going into coaching.//

Oh god Scotty you are scaring me now:)

Tex said...

ya know....spring training is practice and even when the games get started....there is 162 of them...its gonna be a long season if Im gonna have to listen to Sox bashing. I think Ted needs guidelines for writing on his blog

Kaylee said...

Oh TEX you want me to take my bashing somewhere else?!

Ted D said...

Hi Christine: you have a lot of guts jumping into the cesspool this post has turned into! You have got to think my family and I are complete nut jobs. We are'nt. Except for Scott. I've had DISH, but Uncle Bud and MLB forced me to switch. Good thing my love of the Sox is stronger than my hatred for the greediness of MLB. Thanks for the kind words on Trot: he's good. Ornery, but good.

Bub, for all that is good and holy, please stay out of coaching: we need these kids to have all their faculties before entering the real world! Just messing, you'd make a great coach. However, A dancing knuckler refers to Tim Wakefield, our KNUCKLEBALL pitcher: would you PLEASE try to keep up?! :)

And my little blog just broke 50 comments: Wow. The fact that if it were not for my nutty family it never would have happened is not gonna damper my enthusiasm.

Thank you to Tex, Matt, Scott, Christine, Stacy (when we are not talking about marbles) and Kaylee for faithfully coming by. It means a lot for my fragile, living in fantasy land ego.

Kaylee said...

TEX I JUST JOIN IN wITH ALL ThE Fun!

Glad trot is better.my on the other handd if i could not feel like throwing up for 10 minutes id be happy:)

Ted D said...

Kaylee, I gotta say: you are the most talkative, chipper person with the Flu I've ever seen.

You may need to look a ritalin: I'm just making a suggestion.

Kaylee said...

sorry already on that for other reasons TED being sick dont stop me.

Matt said...

I think it's classic that Ted's shortest post in recent days led to the highest number of comments!

Scotty, I figured you'd turn into a Sid the Kid fan at some point. I got to see the 'Canes beat his Pens 2 weeks ago...he's the real deal, fo sho.

I was thinking: How do I get all this crap about being such a tree hugger when my wife drives a gas guzzling Tahoe?

I'm thinking about getting "TREENEWT" as my license plate.

Ted D said...

Fiber all, I'll chip in a fin for the "Treenewt" plate: the ensuing comedy would be well worth it. Matty, you gotta tell me, are the Penguins in first place? 'Cause that sounds like a Scott move if I've ever heard one.

As for the gas guzzler, just chalk it up to a weak moment when you are filling out your PETA membership card!

Tex said...

matt may have a peta card but scott has a pita card ;)

Ted D said...

Tex, you have GOT to meet us someday: we are the goofiest family you will ever meet. Lot of love, but man, do we bust each others marbles like there is no tomorrow.

Tex said...

Ted I got a feeling...i'd fit right in.

Ted D said...

Tex, without a doubt.

We'd make you an honorary member.
