Is It Spring Yet?

Just because she loves her some Josh Beckett, tonight's picture is for my big sister Tex. Well, plus the fact I think she's had a rough week at work and I'm hoping the combination of a photo of Beckett and me actually figuring out one of her Jedi tricks will put a smile on her face.

Big breakthrough with Rakes tonight; we finally figured out how to get past Level 5 on Star Wars Lego's and now we're trying to defeat Darth Vader in Level 6. And yes, it was Rakes who finally did it while I high fived him and kept asking "How did you do that?" If you ever wanna feel like a moron, play video games with a 4 year old. It's a good thing I have low self-esteem.

As for baseball, when the fact Juan Gonzales is attempting another comeback is considered big news, it's pretty much a given there is not much to say. Knowing that doorknob, he tore his hamstring buttering a dinner roll so let's just say I won't hold my breath.

Spring Training can't come fast enough. I want to turn on NESN and see palm trees, Beckett going bonkers on Ryan Howard, and Jim Ed Rice in a hideous floral shirt. Give me Daisuke and his interpreter telling us how he's gonna go Bob Gibson on Slappy, Papelbon giving out Riverdance lessons, and a countdown clock for when Manny is due to arrive in Ft. Myers.

It's 32 degrees, there is ice on the tree in my front yard, and I'm giving serious consideration to filling out the application to try and get Jo Frost to come to my house.

I need baseball.

NOW.

you FIGURED it OUT!!! :)

yes you made me smile as wide as the Rio Grande. Its been a long week and finally tomorrow I go to my office and hopefully get some things finalized. It was a productive week yet I still feel behind. Having to cancel my spring training plans. Don't ask.

I cant say HOW disappointed I am. I was hoping it would be THE time to snatch Beckett's autograph on my flag. :(

Ted D said...

Yes I did! Thanks to you. :)

Glad I got you to smile and hopefully you can decompress this weekend. I HATE to hear you are having to miss out on Spring Training. I know how much that means to you. :(

I will say to the world, or the 10 people who actually read this thing, that my mission come May is to get Beckett to sign your flag in Boston. Between me, candaon, and Kelly's camera, I think we've got a realistic shot.

Tex said...

yah well let's just hope we don't get arrested doing it :)

Ted D said...

No worries.

You've still got that badge, right?

Tex said...

no badge...just my texASS charm and smile. oh and me and josh do have one other thing in common. We use this certain word alot :)

Ted D said...

Yeah, I've heard rumors about that.

Man, I hope I don't have to use the words "Ang" and "Western Union" in the same sentence come May.

Tree Newt said...

You could spend your time watching your local NHL team slowly fall apart at the seams. It's quite entertaining, really.

I am so frightened by the prospect of the phone calls I will be receiving from Beantown come May, I don't know what else to say.

Tex said...

mattie just be ready to say "how much do ya need?" :)

Ted D said...

C'mon Matt. What are brothers for? ;)

As for your Hurricanes, I've got nothing. Maybe you can lure Pave Bure out of retirement?

And Tex. I like the way you think.

CC said...

Just do it - The application! You know we'll be rooting you on and roaring with laughter when you hit the airwaves :O

Ted D said...

Carol, while I'm sure Rakes would be the breakout star of reality tv, I'm not sure Ang is ready for the public admission she married a moron.

She feels bad enough already. I don't think I can put her through all that. If she's OK with it though, I say let's do it.

CC said...

I think it would be a positive experience, and I'll be Rakes agent.

Ted D said...

I agree on the fact it would be a postive experience.

However, if ANYONE is gonna make money off that heathen is is going to be me!

CC said...

Be sure to include your blog on the app - That would provide some valuable insight and likely clinch the deal :)

Ted D said...

Good point, Carol. Although if they take a look at my writing talent it may end quickly.

CC said...

Just call me Carol Epstein LOL

Ted D said...

It's a deal, Carol.

You say that it's 32 degrees outside? I say that it's 32 degrees/snow-ice on the ground. At first it caused a two hour delay but after almost getting ready, it's now a snow day for me!

As for Supernanny, I don't watch the show but for you guys I would just for laughs.

Tex - sorry to hear about no Spring Training. My shot was ruined when I looked to see that Japan was more important then playing at the Blue Jays place (which my aunt happen to live RIGHT behind their ballpark...)

scott h said...

I'm not saying anything. Unless you start listening to Helter Skelter and calling yourself Charlie.

Redbeard76 said...

And to think I held onto a Juan Gon rookie card thinking he was going to be someone.

::kicks dirt::

Hi Tex!

~**Dawn**~ said...

24 days 18 hours & 21 minutes til pitchers & catchers report. Not that I'm counting or anything... =P

Redbeard76 said...

//It's funny. I'll probably marry someone who's not a sports fan and I'll HAVE to convince him to name our child after a sports player//

Krystle (& Ted and everyone) - my wife tells me if we have a second child and it's a boy, his name is Jonathan Michael. After Papelbon and Lowell? Mmm-hmm.

~**Dawn**~ said...

::pokes head up like a gopher::
Did someone say Lowell?

Tex said...

hey everyone. its friday so at least I have that going for me. Im not sure im excited about the beginning of pitchers and catchers anymore :(

Redbeard76 said...

why wouldn't you be Tex?

Tex said...

im not going to spring training...i dont get to see TekASS and Beckett

Krystle THE Red Sox Oasis said...

Sweet. I want to name my child David Michael after Papi and Lowell. David's my uncles name so I can kill two birds with one stone no?

Ted D said...

Bub, you are too much. I have noticed I've been saying "man" a lot though.

Stephen, buck up son. All of us thought he was a sure fire hall of famer. Talk about a flame out of epic proportions. And I like the name for your yet to be born son; always good to work the Sox in when you can.

Dawn, it'll be here before we know it, right? And you popping your head up like a gopher? LOL!

Tex, I know it's killing you, but it'll pass, I promise. Just think, THIS year you have Tedapalooza to look forward to!

Krystle, please tell me that name is for a child WAY in the future?

Tex said...

\\THIS year you have Tedapalooza to look forward to!//

you always make me smile :)

Ted D said...

Glad to hear it, Tex. I try. ;)

Krystle THE Red Sox Oasis said...

Ted - oh yes. WAY in the future. I'm too into my future to think of children. I'm not being a teenager today who gets pregnant just to get pregnant.

I mean I was accepted into a college today, I'm not having kids just yet =D!

Ted D said...

Glad to hear it, Krystle.

And congratulations on getting accepted to college; that's a big thing in someone's life.

Krystle THE Red Sox Oasis said...

It is =D!

Now it's one more to apply to. Take SATs ONE more time and hope I get into my number one school!

Tex said...

Ted. you're gonna love this one

Ted D said...

Why am I scared all of a sudden? Heading that way, Tex.
