My first day as a wild and crazy guy went like this:
10:30 a.m. Saw Ang and the kids off with a kiss, a hug, and a wave.
11:00-1:00 Went to the bank, got a haircut, and returned my overdue Jackie Robinson book to the library.
1:00-5:00 Alternated between watching "Deadliest Catch", messing around on the computer, and vacuuming the carpet and mopping the hardwood floors.
5:00-11:45 Took a shower, ate supper, and watched the Red Sox play the Devil Rays.
11:50 Went to bed.
It's official: I am the most BORING single man I've ever seen. Thank God I've already found the love of my life, because based on yesterday, I don't know if I would EVER be able to get another woman's attention.
As for the game, the final score of 12-6 in favor of the Sox is a little misleading. The DRays just sort of hung around, and in the bottom of the 9th, Pap gave up a 2 run shot by Johnny Gomes to tie it up at 6 apiece.
It took a bases loaded walk by Lugo, a bases clearing double by Youk, and a 2 run double by Manny in the top of the 12th to get the Sox ahead, and Javier Lopez closed it out. To say the Devil Ray pen is horrible is an insult to all the truly horrible 'pens. They are brutal: watching that debacle makes me appreciate the job that has been done by pitching coach John Farrell and the Red Sox pitching staff all year: here's to ya fellas. Great job.
As for today, I think I'm gonna practice that trick with the water Youk is doing: looks pretty exciting.
