savor the sweetness
how dark it seemed in red sox nation.
the air became heavy
as a storm gathered far in the distance
and appeared suddenly, as if out of nowhere,
raged on for days
then was gone, in an instant... and unexpectedly.
*Bob Wickman just smiled and made a thumbs up. You know what that means.*
And now it is sunny. The air is light.
*oh, you don't? It means the Yankees SUCK*
Yeah, the summer has turned.
But we've been over that, right?
Ah, it still feels good to dwell on it. After all, today felt so sure, and the confidence of the nation was well placed. And Manny, though it's nice to hear that you love us, you can show us in that way any day. Also, thanks for making Runny Elves PAY for those walks.
Manny's not the only thing shiny and gold right now... the whole team looks refreshed after a quality "nap" yesterday. Our second baseman is finally starting to grow on me, and Gabe makes a splash in his short playing time, once again. He didn't have much of a chance on that score, but you've got to love his bid to knock the catcher over.

The guys have hit the field in Foxboro, and I start to remember that there is life beyond baseball... football, of course. Now most of you readers would not realize this, but I am a football fan first. But it's much different to blog about... I'm not sure I'll be all that good at it, and so far I have not been feeling inspired. Now that camp has started, I'm sure that will change quite soon.
I'm looking forward to reading your entries about The Pats.
