The fun part of the Yankees/Red Sox rivalry over the last few years is watching the teams play the game of "anything you can do you I can do better", both on the field and off. The crushing defeat of Pedro in yankee stadium and the hr by Aaron f**ing Boone, the Sox winning 4 straight, the battle for Jose Contreras, (a win by the Yanks turned into a loss turned into a win by the White Sox), the A-Rod signing, etc. A microsm of this is the last two days, starting with my previous post regarding the comeback win of the Sox and the collapse of the Yankees. 24 hrs later, the Yankees have the momentum, with a hell of a deal yesterday. Bobby Abreu completely addresses their outfield needs, the team is not on the hook for his contract extension,and Cory Lidle strengthens their pitching, either as a 5th starter or a middle reliever. This was not a deal that only the Yankees could make, the money should not have prevented the Sox from making a deal like this, and I am very frustrated with Theo at this point. I can only hope he has something bigger brewing.
Super smart (and oh so humble) I often wonder if heightened intelligence is a blessing or a curse. Recognizing the evil, lies, and corruption that dominate the world, I often retreat into films, comics, sports, and other distractions. Bread and Circuses, baby!! (Don't you just wanna hang out with me now; I must be a barrel of laughs). My blog is where you can read these thoughts, and soon enough you will begin to see, I'm a pretty cool guy. (There's that humility again)
