Sunday thoughts of randomness. My football team won. So there’s that.
The Miami Dolphins won. AGAIN.
I’d like to point out that they have won three consecutive games. And I have been paying attention for exactly THREE CONSECUTIVE GAMES.
It’s nice when a sports team listens to you.
Speaking of listening, as we all know, no one listens to Ben Cherington. Certainly not the owners. Who rejected Sveum (who is now a fricking Cub. Who I didn’t really like. But do now, since we can’t have him) in favor of Valentine (really?!). An EIGHT week manager search.
This Cherington guy isn’t off to a great start. But it’s not entirely his fault. He’s not the guy who let Theo go with a pay-for-it-later plan.
Shaugnessy put it eloquently:
The Sox are like a guy who “sells’’ his house, and lets the new owner move in before closing. The played “seller’’ has to go to court to evict, or make the new owner pay. It’s a joke. Epstein had tremendous value and the Sox let him walk and now they are begging. Pathetic.
Shaugnessy was on a roll today, making the astute observation that we’ve all ALREADY MADE that the Sox offseason is worse than the 2011 season.
…the goofy owners make more errors than Julio Lugo in a day-night doubleheader.
So, Friday. Went out. Karaoke. You may or not know how obsessed I am with karaoke. I am obsessed with karaoke.
Got the best mean comments. But mostly indifference from a baseball-less North Carolina.
“Um, you do know he’s not on the Red Sox, right?” ~Pompous ass at bar. He bought me a drink. So I only gave him the finger once.
“Red Sox? More like Red Sux.” ~Pompous ass number two. He was rewarded for his CREATIVITY with an accidental (you can’t prove it was on purpose) foot stomp and grind.
But then he bought me a drink too, so he was forgiven.
“You guys had a rough season.” Pompous ass number three. Who I completely unloaded on, sitcom-wit style. Upon reflection, maybe he was being sympathetic. Oops.
He didn’t buy me a drink.
And that was my weekend.
Hope to see “DAVID ORTIZ SIGNS BAZILLION YEAR CONTRACT WITH SOX” in my morning news alerts. Do not read this. It is a lie.
PS- Now that Heidi is gone, maybe they will hire me. You should all write letters. Thanks.
Oh. And I’m kind of glad the new format hadn’t gone into effect this year- because we would have made wildcard, and it might have hurt extra in October. Is that wrong?
