I've waited since the last out of the ALCS series last year for today.
Opening Day of the Red Sox 2009 season.
I was off at work, had my lucky hat on my nightstand, and my Josh Beckett t-shirt ready to be put on in case of emergency; it was the perfect convergence of all things good.
Then Ang came down with a migraine last night, which forced me into full time caretaker while she laid in bed and begged me to hit her legs with a sledgehammer like Annie in "Misery" just to take the focus off her head. I was still good, although at one point around 9:30, and I hate to admit this, I actually was briefly considering duct taping Rakes and Trot to their chairs with just enough wiggle room to operate a PS2 remote and placing a mason jar underneath them so they could pee.
All that planning went out the window when I found out that the game had been postponed until tomorrow.
When I'll be at work.
Ain't life a swift kick to the gibleys sometimes?
On a positive note, Rakes scored 3 goals in his soccer game tonight, CC Sabbathia took the 10-5 loss to the Orioles, and I'm pretty sure I'm going to come down with a nuclear sized case of Montezumas Revenge around 3:30 at work tomorrow.
