They get bigger…

April 9, 2008

3.5......

Not the greatest picture, but it works. From left to right: 2007 WS Ring, 2004 WS Ring, 2001 WS Ring, 1993 NLCS Ring.

Pretty incredible day, from the rogue jet looping the formation on the flyover to seeing Bill Buckner finally lauded for being what he was, a great player, to Pesky and Ortiz raising our second world series banner in 4 years, today went off without a hitch.

Then add Dice-K dominating and us winning the home opener. Oh and one of the coolest parts was seeing our own Baghdad Jamie carrying the flag of Iraq onto the field for the pre game ceremony and Sox Nation, I think, had a pretty good day. P.S. Great to see you again Douggie! You better keep in touch!

Sarah Mckenna held her own today, and I think proved she’s up to the task of entertaining the fans of Sox Nation with pertinent, relevant and important people.

Now if we can find a way to get past the Tigers 2 more times before they wake up and become what we all know they will…….

Oh and one more thing, my ’86 Sox are creeping back into contention as the season winds down….
Not many games left on the schedule

    I just have to tell you “GOOOOOOOOOOOO YANKEES”. WHAT? you’ve never heard sports players get mad at their teammates before? I’m sure you have been mad at your teammates many times. What do you want Kobe to do, talk to them softly and give them cookies each? STOP CRITICIZING AND ENJOY THE NBA CHAMPIONSHIP GAME! Stop showing your ring and have your Celtics enjoy their moments, you got yours last year.

    I just have to say that the Yankees and Kobe Suck.

    “After the time of all those bleeps, we almost pulled off one of the greatest comebacks in history,” he said. “It seemed to motivate them pretty well.”

    Kobe- “almost” pulled it off doesn’t count. The Celtics did pull off the greatest comeback in Finals history. You didn’t see Garnett yelling at Pierce because he was 0 – 3 in 3PT shots. Kobe is the most talented player in the NBA but I would take Kevin Garnett for being an all around player with Class.

    Curt: I read the article today in ESPN.com about you having surgery and commenting that you’ve likely “thrown my last pitch forever.”

    Did you just realize this? Because I’ve known you’ve been done for over a year. You’ve had a great career and I have a lot of respect for you. Not too many baseball players can say they’ve beat the Yankees on 2 different teams and played an integral part in each! But, it’s over. That article and your comments are so obvious…who are you kidding? You’ve been done so long.

    Also, do me a favor. Either become a journalist or not. I assume you will be working for ESPN or Fox soon, but get on with it already. I”m sick of all your comments about every athlete and sport while you hide behind being a red sox. Leave the red sox and go join one of the sports analysis teams on Espn or Fox or maybe even get your own show on the NESN. Stop hiding behind this blog and your status as a hall of fame red sox and get out there and get in, for example, Kobe’s face with your comments and criticisms. Let’s see you say those things to his face. Howard Cosell had a great career doing this and I’m sure you will too, but at least he had the gutts to just do it and not hide like you do behind your legendary athletic status.

    I’d like to see the next article about you in ESPN.com be your announcement that you have officially joined a tv network. Let’s see if you have the gonads to do that, otherwise, shut up and keep your comments to yourself. Only the classless people up in boston care.

    and thanks for allowing Bill Buckner a chance to walk in the sun. Sports can be very unfair. Glad to see this myth, like “the Curse” [Copyright CHB–Ed.], finally put to rest.
