Way Back When-esday

Cheryl over at Twinfatuation hosts this one. Go on over to see who else is playing – and join in too!

*Sniff, sniff* What’s that I smell? Is it…? Can it be..? SPRING TRAINING IS IN THE AIR!!

Today’s post is in honor of the wonderful game of baseball. The Red Sox have their first full workout today. WOOT!

As you know, there’s a slight rivalry in our household…I’m a Sox fan; Mike’s an Indian’s fan. We started the confusion for our kids early 😉

Mike (and Indians fan)  and I (a Red Sox fan) went the Sox/Indians game on Wedensday. The Indians won, but we had a good time anyway 😉

We were in the last row in our section…and Mike’s seat had a lovely obstructed view of Home plate.

I could see home plate from my seat…around the pole.

If we looked straight, we had a lovely view of 2nd base. (You gotta love Fenway! 😉 )

Thursday Theater – Giggles

Goddess hosts Thursday Theater. Wanna join in? Go add your name to the list!

This week’s theme is Giggles. Mike and I went to the Red Sox/Indians game last night. And while the final score didn’t make me giggle…listening to everyone sing Sweet Caroline in the middle of the 8th inning does!

A Moment of Silence

…For my beloved Red Sox. They were SO.CLOSE. *sigh*

Ah well – the Rays truly outplayed them this time – but it was great to watch.

Manny, Manny, Manny

You may or may not know that I’m a Red Sox fan. I don’t blog about them often (actually, ever) – but I have to try to sort through my feelings about “The Manny Trade” and figured this might be a good way to do it.

So … right now we’re hearing that he’s been traded in a three team deal. (Hansen and Moss are gone too). And We get Jason Bay. I know nothing about Bay…but it seems like that’s a lot of players leaving for what we are getting! I’m hoping that there are other things involved, but we just haven’t heard about it yet…

I’m sad that Manny is leaving because (when he actually plays) he’s a KICK BUTT hitter. And he brings humor to the game. I’m okay with him leaving because of some of the publicized antics lately (throwing a 60 year old man to the ground, b*tich-slapping Youkilis, among other things).

So. It’s too bad that a hall of famer is leaving us – but if he’s disrupting the team too much, or if he’s going to be a super diva – SEE YA. And let’s hope we won’t be playing against your team too often…
