At about the same time today, three things happened.
39 year old Jason Varitek hit 2 home runs in a win against the Phillies, Rakes was crying in agony from water in his ear and was hopping up and down on one foot while slapping the side of his head and Trot, and I quote, "I dot this bump on my face when I was at the pool and tried to back-flip/cannonball into the water and hit my head".
If you had offered me 10 to 1 odds Rakes would cry over a sore ear, Tek would hit 2 home runs in a game, and Trot would hit his head on the side of the pool while attempting some idiotic dive I'd have put down $500 on the spot.
Ok, maybe not. But 2 out of the 3?
I'm pretty sure the Mayan's wrote about 'em when they did that whole "calendar" thing.
Not to worry. Rakes called me as soon as the game was over and let me know he, and the Sox, were all right.
"Sox won, Dad. 5-2. Who do we play next?"
