I Love It When A Plan Comes Together

After that 7-0 home stand that found me in Fenway Park for the first time, I was convinced the Sox were going to run off one of those 15-5 winning streaks and start to put the rest of the AL East in the rear view mirror. Instead, they go to to Oakland and lay a 0-3 egg, then take one game in Seattle against a team that up until now would have a hard time beating Rudy from "The Bad News Bears".

So after staying up past midnight 5 out of the last 6 days only to watch a big pile of UGH, I needed a diversion from baseball. Just for the day, mind you. I'll be screaming profanities at Jay Payton and calling Brian Roberts a tool come tomorrow night. But today? I need some stress free downtime.

Tonight is the season finale of LOST and I'll be glued to the tv for the next 2 hours. It's the only thing on tv that consistently gives me goosebumps not named Ortiz, David and Ramirez, Manny and is also the only show my wife and I both watch. She's not that big of a baseball fan and I could care less what those bimbos on "The Hills" are up to.

Here's to the boys starting a 10 game win streak tomorrow night and to my mental break from the stress of a 162 game season.

Time to go get LOST.

You know where I was last night? Watching my little girl sit stone faced while seeing Elmo and all his Muppet friends dance at the RBC center. She was so excited, but once it started...she had on her best poker face.

Elmo and friends.

Yet I loved every minute of it.

Parenthood is awesome.

Good for you, little brother. I'm glad Caroline had such a good time.

So, what time are you meeting your shrink today?

Ha! Me too, and I don't care who's into "Kristen" or "Lauren".

I've missed a few Lost episodes due to the cable box inadvertently being unplugged while away from home, so literally I'm lost on Lost. The last episode I saw before missing episodes was where Ben shot his daughter. I think I'm only missing one or 2 and I recorded the 8 o'clock episode. So I've got some catching up to do. I can still view episodes online, yeah?

Ted D said...

Redbeard, you can still watch on

Dude, the season finale is going to blow your mind.

Oh the Hills. I DISPISE those shows! Id get too confused watching Lost I'm afraid.

So today is Manny's birthday. Ten to one he's a year younger instead of a year older!

Ted D said...

I think you may be right, Krystle!

Happy birthday to Manny.
