So what will we do now?
So the season's over. At least this gives the front office plenty of time to work that contract stuff out with theo and josh byrnes... always lookin' on the bright side here at reb sox, that's what we do, even when we want to run up and down the halls in a mad rage, kicking the cat and screaming at whomever thinks this is an appropriate time to be laughing and having casual conversation in the living room. No, we must take a deep breath and think of all the things we just won't have to worry about for awhile... like the utter suckitude of our bullpen, and the failure of our "dangerous lineup" to come through when it really counts... no, we won't have to worry about those things until April.
Things we will have to worry about:
- reb sox needs a new banner. I'm sure it won't get done for a few days, but eventually I'll get something up there. In the meantime, surely it won't hurt any more than anything else...
- the patriots. they've got some serious work to do there in foxboro.
- protecting tito from jere, who is surely in a blind "never take out timmy" violent rage right now. and since he won't be distracted by football, tito might need some serious protection for quite some time.
I'm sure there's lots of other stuff to worry about, too. My brain can't even wrap around the issue of the coming months. I'm gonna go drive to NH in the pouring rain right now; Surely that will be therapeutic.
So long, 2005 Red Sox, and good luck you other sox fans. You've got a great team, and I think this could be your year.
Although I am bummed, I have to say, I am not feeling all that bad, unlike previous years when it actually hurt after the Sox lost the last game of the year. Winning a World Series will do that for ya I guess!
In Theo We Trust
mr.blackn'white, the thing about our recent success in boston and foxboro... not only do we have the feeling to look back on, but we also know what a championship team looks like... and what it doesn't look like. Knowing the team just didn't have it this year makes it almost a relief to see them out of it, at least for me.
@ least we rooted for a team, which did NOT inject itself, full of enhancers.
layout comment: It's a lot wider than the old one. With the browser width I usually read blogs at, the banner says: "REB S loves football in f."
Cool banner! Not sure if you know this already, so forgive me if you do. If you resize the banner so it's less than 800 pixels wide, the majority of your readers should be all set. (As an example, the banner on my site is 770 pixels wide, just to be safe).
Hope that helps!
(Note to take out the spaces that I used above)
If you get rid of the div id=header code, it will get rid of that yellow border as well unless you like it, then leave it in! ;-)
