There was a game tonight?

*Picture from the Boston Globe*

With all the buildup leading into tonight's game, you'd think it was the ALDS and not just another game in April. Of course I planned my day around 7:05 tonight, but I'm nuts so it's OK.

Apparently, the entire nation of Japan was watching, causing millions of Japanese folks to wonder why the little guy with the mustache called him "Matsuzaker"? Seems like Daisuke facing Ichiro is the Japanese equivalent of Ali vs. Fazier.

Well, 7IP, 3R, 3ER, 1BB, and 4K's usually will buy you a win: unless the other pitcher suddenly channels Nolan Ryan and flirts with a no-no through 7 innings. JD Drew finally ended that nonsense with a seeing eye single in the 8th, but Felix indeed was King tonight. 9IP, 1H, 0R, 2BB, and 6K's. Not a whole awful lot you can do with that but tip your cap to a great game and move on to tomorrow.

Mother Nature, in her infinite wisdom, has decided that tomorrow would be a nice time to dump a Nor'easter on New England. Doesn't she know Wakefield is scheduled to pitch tomorrow? If all these day games weren't enough, now I've gotta worry if they are even gonna get to play them.

Hopefully the game gets played. Hopefully Wakefield is spot on like he was last week. Hopefully the bats hit like Tuesday and not tonight.

Just for Corn Meal, I'm resisting the urge to reference "Shawshank Redemption" right now.

You have no idea how difficult that is for me to do.

scott h said...

Great post TEEED. When you figure out that I have nothing to do with the chicklets you will feel real BAD!

KAYLEE said...

scott I am way to hyper to go to bed anytime soon and I dont have school til 10:30 tomorrow:D

scott h said...

What the heck kinda school is that!

scott h said...

Ted I saw one of your ex's and she now lives in Texas, on Sunday. That Bonita Brooks chick, don't deny it .

KAYLEE said...

Scott:Its because some of the school has to take SATS and some of us dont so if you dont you dont have to go til 10:30 and we get out at 1:30 I know its stupid!

KAYLEE said...

I can so see ted dating someone by that NAME scott!

KAYLEE said...

okay noe I must get to bed:-)

KAYLEE said...

noe=now

John said...

Not a lot wrong with Dice-K today, just a great game from the other guy. I DVR'd it on ESPN satellite but couldn't resist checking it out live at lunchtime.
If tomorrow's game is on, it'll be 8:05 breakfast time and WFH perhaps!
The forecast looks exactly like the day after Opening Day 2005, lining up around the warning track in sleet and 30 degee temps, waiting to see the WS trophy and some rings. Good times!

Tex said...

ok the hype is over...now let's get down to bizness

Carol said...

Hi Ted - How dare Hernandez steal the Diceman's thunder... and he just turned 21. Also, the Boston area has been downgraded to just an inch of snow, so there's hope for today's game!

Mattie said...

So what, is Kaylee going to dog Wake now that she got on the Beckett-bandwagon? C'mon Kaylee, show some love for the boys!

Brother, glad to see you resisted your urges in dropping the Shawshank lines. I'm proud of you.

And Miracle-Gro, we know you're the blue hairs. Just admit it. You'll feel better.

chicklets said...

Lord have mercy, Mirdle got a speeding ticket!! She was apparently going 30 in a 70 on the highway. Unbelievable. Now, we can't afford to pay Tree Newt to be the guest speaker at our ladies convention because we have to pay Mirdle's bloomin' speeding ticket.

I hope everyone else is having a better day than we are.

Ted D said...

Mildred, I thought you spelled her name Myrtle, not mirdle. If you're gonna create characters, you gotta remember how to spell thier names!

Hi John, and I agree. Usually 3 runs in 7 innings gets you the win 9 out of 10 times. Hernandez was lights out last night. Game today has been postponed until May 3rd.

Ugh.

Carol, I wish you were a better prognosticator than you are a Mom! What am I gonna do NOW? :) But I appreciate the well wishes anyway.

Ted D said...

Crap: just realized I missed someone earlier:


HOWDY TEX!

KAYLEE said...

//So what, is Kaylee going to dog Wake now that she got on the Beckett-bandwagon? C'mon Kaylee, show some love for the boys!//

TreeSquirrel what in your whacked up mind makes you think I am dogging on WAKE NOW?

KAYLEE said...

//I hope everyone else is having a better day than we are. //

HOW CAN I WITH YOU CHICKLETS HERE?

KAYLEE said...

I stayed home from school for nothing today:-)

Tex said...

Just when I think Ive heard it all...I have to say Ted, when I encouraged you to do a blog...I had NO Idea you would grow to have Groupies!!

Ted D said...

It's a mad, mad world Tex. What else can I say. Athletes get the hot groupies: good old Ted gets 73 year old kookie birds! After talking to Scotty today, I've got a pretty good idea on who it is.

Did you get a clean bill of health from the doc today?

And Kaylee, see comment number one to see what you said about Wake: THAT is why he thinks you are dogging him. :)

KAYLEE said...

Okay that aint dogging him its stating facts there is a difference aint there?

Tex said...

Doc gave me thumbs UP. I still have up to 6 weeks of getting my range of motion in my thumb...but doing Great!!

Ted D said...

Good to hear Tex. I'm glad for you.

Kaylee, he was great in Texas last week. Your attention span come and goes quicker than Rakes. And that's fast. :)

Tex said...

just cos a pitcher doesnt win a game...doesnt mean they didnt pitch well kaylee

hey ya...I am on a roll today....both of ya got a shoutout on my blog

KAYLEE said...

Thanks TEX but,that aint what I wanna be known for!

KAYLEE said...

//Your attention span come and goes quicker than Rakes. And that's fast. :)//

TED I would hope that aint TRUE...I should have a better better attention span the a 3 year old:-)

KAYLEE said...

//just cos a pitcher doesnt win a game...doesnt mean they didnt pitch well kaylee//

TRUE but........not with WAKE!

KAYLEE said...

Crap I just realized is my mothers birthday today!

KAYLEE said...

*it is

chicklets said...

Oh,Ted, we have had such a stressful day! I told you about the ticket now we accidently gave old man Wilson a double dose of his sleeping medicine . We will be up all night reading to him just to make sure he will be ok. I'm tempted to just sit him in the corner.

PS I think we saw you today ! That red shirt looks good on you. YOU THINK YOU KNOW US R U K D N M E

KAYLEE said...

//now we accidently gave old man Wilson a double dose of his sleeping medicine//

WHERE THE HECK DID HE CAME INTO PLAY?

KAYLEE said...

//After talking to Scotty today, I've got a pretty good idea on who it is.//

ARE THEY A WOMEN CAUSE OTHERWISE I WANNA KNOW WHERE THEY GOT THAT PICTURE!

Ted D said...

Kaylee.

WILL YOU STOP SHOUTING! YOU ARE HURTING MY EARS!

Tex, the chicklets aren't groupies: they are stalkers. I wore a RED SHIRT today.

OK, I'm officially scared. No one from my family saw me today. Who in the world IS this? I'm thinking about where I went today, and none of my customers know about the blog. I've got to ask Angie who she has told about this.

Tex said...

maybe its angie?? LOL

KAYLEE said...

Ted i am sorry the caps lock button keeps going on....are these people psychic?

Ted D said...

Not Angie Tex.

BUT, it's someone out here or they are getting help in Oklahoma.

Scotty started getting jumpy today when I suggested a certain couple of suspects. Wonder if I'm onto something, hmm Scott?

Chicklets, IKDUNOT.

Columbo is on the case.

Ted D said...

Kaylee, if it's who I think it is, they aren't physic:

They just have a mole undercover: I might have to go Jack Bauer on my wife and/or mom. :)

KAYLEE said...

he'll never admit it if they are connected to him:D

Ted D said...

Don't worry: I'll fgure it out.

Even though I'm as dumb as I look, I watch A LOT of television: just have to draw on all those years of experience.

KAYLEE said...

I think there is a ghost in my house cause weird things are happening and nobody else is home.Its scaring me.

Tex said...

kaylee...just say BOOO!!! and they'll go away.

or get a sheet and pretend to be one too

KAYLEE said...

I am about ready too TEX!

Ted D said...

Tex, it's obvious you have not had a younger child in the house for awhile!

Kaylee, just don't answer the phone, whatever you do. Turn around in a circle 3 times and say "Whataburger".

That'll take care of it.

KAYLEE said...

TED,dont give me insane ideas cause I do every one of them:-)

Tex said...

Ted!! now I may not have lil kids around...but I have TONS of nephews and nieces who are having kids of their OWN!!! I know kids...dress up kaylee...have all your sibs dress up and scare the ghost

KAYLEE said...

Haha TEX I will put on my yankees jersey and scare em away:-)

KAYLEE said...

//but I have TONS of nephews and nieces who are having kids of their OWN!!! //

NEVER KNEW YOU WERE THAT OLD:-) at least yopu arent a grandma yet...(at least for another couple of years)

Tex said...

kaylee I aint that old. My oldest brother is 68 yrs old, then my sis who is 58, another brother who is 55...me at 48...and my lil sis who is 44. My nieces and nephews of the oldest three sibs all have kids who have kids.
MY son does NOT thank goodness

KAYLEE said...

sorry tex I couldnt resist that comment:D

Tex said...

i ignore most of what you say...you're 15 :-p

KAYLEE said...

haha AS most adults do :P

KAYLEE said...

Tex,It dont take a genius to figure out us teenagers arent the brightest people yet:)

Ted D said...

Kaylee, don't listen to Tex.

Turn around 3 times and say Whataburger.

Trust me. It'll work.

Tex said...

im just teasin ya kaylee. I like teenagers...reason I became a juvenile probation officer

KAYLEE said...

//Turn around 3 times and say Whataburger.//

I have to this even though I know you are full of it:)

KAYLEE said...

I know that TEX!

KAYLEE said...

YOU are strange tonight TED!

scott h said...

Who knows what evil grows in the hearts of man. I'm working my tailend off and Ted is running around like the "Ghost and Mr chicken"! I think I would check the door lock twice tonight. I wouldn't want the chicklets coming home to roost!

Tex said...

dem chicklets are really starting to grow on me

KAYLEE said...

oh no TEX we dont need more of them!

Ted D said...

Bub!

"Ghost and Mr. Chicken": one more piece of the puzzle Scotty boy.

::goes back to "interrogate" Angie Jack Bauer style::

KAYLEE said...

dont turn into an investigater on us now TED!

Ted D said...

Kaylee,

I'm just trying to get to the truth. I WILL find out the indentity of the Chicklets. In fact, ask Mattie. I've got a pretty good idea already. When the time is right, I will expose these two for the shameless liars they are!

KAYLEE said...

TED,

Okay you are just scarier to me tonight then usual I dont know why but you are!

scott h said...

Kaylee ,thats because he is EATUP. I think he should just embrace his fanclub.

KAYLEE said...

Scott:I"d have to agree with that .AND i thought you were the weird one I think Ted officially has taken that Honor now.

Ted D said...

Scotty,

I know. I know who the Chicklets are.

My interrogation techniques are apparently quite effective.

Never issue a challenge to a man with OCD.

Word to the wise.

KAYLEE said...

//Never issue a challenge to a man with OCD.

Word to the wise.//

does that go for me too?!Cause I can issue challenges if you want:D

Ted D said...

Kaylee,

My OCD is RAGING with these Chicklets. They must want me to start taking medication.

Chicklets, you have heard about paybacks, right? Old Ted may be slow, but I can hold a grudge with the best of them.

Do you think I know who you are yet?

KAYLEE said...

//My OCD is RAGING with these Chicklets. They must want me to start taking medication.//

START TAKING they are the ones that made me go on Blood pressure Medication:-P

KAYLEE said...

ps I wrote you a question on your comment on my blog:)

scott h said...

Ted did you check the back door?

Ted D said...

Yes I did Bub.

But only out of habit. If my detective skills are telling me the truth, I won't have to worry. At least for around 19 hours or so.

KAYLEE said...

YOU GUYS ARE TOO MUCH FOR ME TONIGHT!
