Ramblings from the Sick Bay

*Picture from the Boston Globe*

Stuck home with this cursed flu bug, I've been struck with some undeniable truths:

First, men, particularly THIS man, do NOT do well with being sick. I have reverted back to being 8 years old, whining and moaning, with the pinnacle being 2 nights ago when my poor wife went out at 10:30 to get her girly man of a husband a bottle of Gatorade. Bless you sweetheart: I don't deserve you.

Secondly, after watching the repeats of "Sportscenter" and "Baseball Tonight" for the 20th time in a row, there really is NOTHING worth watching on daytime TV. To offer proof, I'm currently watching the Scripps Spelling Bee. Seriously.

Finally, the Boston Red Sox are, without a doubt, THE team to beat this year. Into town roll the Cleveland Indians, with the second best record in the AL and scoring runs like they are going out of style. What happens? Curt Schilling and Josh Beckett happen, throwing back to back gems you expect from your ace(s). It doesn't get any easier for the Tribe: Daisuke Matsuzaka, he of the 7-2 record takes the bump tonight.

For the award "Best 1B in the AL NOT listed on your All-Star ballot" I give you Kevin Youkilis: Is there anyone who is hotter at the plate right now than Youk? Plus, he's playing 1B like he's been doing it for years. One word of advice Kevin: DO NOT shave that chia pet you have growing on your chin and upper lip. Trust me.

How hot is this team? On consecutive nights without Ortiz in the lineup, and with Wily Mo (God love him) playing RF, they have beaten a very, very good Cleveland team. Do you think the Yankees, with their poor pitching, dead bats, and now, the Arod "Stripper Gate" controversy, are looking forward to this weekend?

Wonder why Rogah is going to make his debut MONDAY in Chicago?

Rogah is skeeered of the Bahstin Boys!

Ted D said...

I think you may be right Tex.

Stacy said...

Isn't he still pitching for the Mud Hens (or something like that)?

Definitely saving him for AFTER Boston.

Stacy said...

Oh, and men not doing well with being sick? Not exactly a news flash. :)

Ted D said...

Yeah, I know Stacy: I'm not exactly the Lewis and Clark of the blog world.

Tex said...

men are babies when it comes to them being sick. its like the whole testosterone seeps out of their pores and they revert back to infant stage...WHA WHA WHA!!!

Carol said...

My John could easily belong to the 'big baby when sick club'. It use to catch me by surprise, but now it has sunken in -lol.

Sorry you're so sick and that there's nothing on daytime, but we are benefitting from it with your good post(s)!

Ted D said...

I think all men fit that category Carol. Hope you are feeling better, and that Baby D is weathering your sickness well.

The game tonight is making me nausous for entirely different reasons. Thank you for your kind words. :)

Carol said...

D is running around with a big smile as we blog/speak! Let's turn it around Sox - I want (another) sweep!

Ted D said...

You spoke it Carol: Bases loaded, nobody out in the bottom of the 7th.

Keep prognosticating Carol: it's working!

Christine E. said...

Glad to see you are moving away from deaths door...LOL

Although the way THIS game is going...it might drive you back there....

Hope everyone is well!

Bases loaded--go Sox!

Ted D said...

Hi Christine: Papi JUST missed the grand slam, then pops out. :(

I still have faith: they have 2 innings left.

Though I am feeling a little bit sicker now.

Ted D said...

Of course, I was not counting on Shoppach hitting the first pitch from Romero out of the park.

Ugh.

Carol said...

Pass the Pepto.

Ted D said...

On it's way Carol: you want some Maloxx also? I've got it too.

Carol said...

Hold the Maalox with Lowell's 2-run homer!

Ted D said...

Gotcha.

8-4. 4 runs for this team is nothing I tell you, nothing.

::prays::

Carol said...

The "Mother's Day miracle" comes to mind Ted!

Ted D said...

There you go Carol!

Just needed a Mom to remind me!

Christine E. said...

The could not score on bases loaded-no outs?

Don't deserve to win this game...not at all...

Do you think 13.5 games is enough?

Pass the medicine over here--I think my hives are back..(sigh)

Ted D said...

::passes Pepto to Christine::

Yeah, I was upset that with the bases juiced they could not put across at least one. Papi JUST missed the grand slam.

::sigh::

Carol said...

Papi's been kind of quiet.

Ted D said...

Words of wisdom, Carol.

You sure you aren't a prophet(ess)?

4 runs in the bottom of the ninth? It's possible.

Christine E. said...

How the HECK did Pedroia get a 311 batting average? When did that happen?

Oh hell....

Ted D said...

LOL Christine!

He has been on a very, very silent tear here lately.

10 game hitting streak I think.

All this moaning and complaining. Don't you know over on Peatmoss aka Ralph Nader's blog illegal aliens are being denied entry to our wounderful country!
