Blogging the Red Sox - first game of 2009 (my first blog, not their opener.. never mind)
So my first Red Sox game to blog about, after not writing the night that Lester pitched and lost. I know it's only the 5th game of the season, but for a Sox fan that is not too early to start worrying. I actually think it should be that way for any fan, but that's my opinion, man.
So after a brilliant performance by Beckett in game 1, the Sox lost games started by Lester, Dice-K, and Wakefield. They lost the first series 2-1 to the Rays, and a loss today would mean a second straight series loss, this time to the Angels. So the start today by Penny is bigger. for me, with a 5th starter in my rotations, I'm looking for 5 innings and 3 or less runs scored. Anything more or less is bonus. Well, it didn't look pretty, and I was unimpressed with Penny's physique, (have another beer and a jelly donut, jeezus), but he got through 5 innings with 3 runs, so not bad. thanks to HR's by Mike Lowell (F' U Tex, you d*@k, a 2 run blast, and another 2 run blast by Jason Bay (F' U Manny), and the Sox currently lead 4-3, 8th inning.
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)
