::coughs violently after blowing dust and cobwebs off LJ::

Alright, so there was no baseball played at Fenway...Still, I left the office knowing the Mets had won and arrived home in time to view the final two innings of a Yankee defeat. All in all, that counts as a good day. (DLowe’s nationally televised pwn-age of the Phillies* the night before also counts toward the Monday good vibes, much the same way that going to Mass on Saturday night—back when I did that sort of thing—counted as going on Sunday.)

I was horrified, however, by the soul-curdling sight of Orlando Cabrera wearing the uniform of a Choakland A. What did Cabby ever do to God to merit sharing a clubhouse with Sweaty Pig-Face Giambi? Or Nomar Garciaparra, for that matter? (Not that I have anything against Nomar, but I imagine that’s gotta be awkward.)



*With apologies to any Phillies fans who may still be hanging around my long-neglected friends list—I’m sure you’re all wonderful people, but I find myself unable to forgive the fanbase en masse for their appalling treatment of Tito. (Why yes, I do hold grudges against complete strangers on behalf of people I’ve never even met…stop looking at me like that’s unreasonable or something.)

Hello again! :D Who could've guessed that Nomar and Cabby would end up as teammates 5 years later?

Oh and PS Papi and Wake were teammates against Masterson and Papelbon in a Red Sox version of The Match Game. And yes they won.

What's the old saying...

...about old age and guile vs. youth and skill? At any rate, it's nice to see the Wake/Papi love still going strong.

Anyways, it's nice to be back. I've been missing LJ something fierce--esp. since I recently started up on Facebook and have been finding it sorely lacking...but that's neither here nor there. It's good to see you're still here!

The third to last picture is making the slasher in me squee. And I was starting to lose some interest in them (still liked them but lately I'm on a HUGE Mike Lowell/Alex Cora kick...even if they're not teammates anymore)

It'd be nice to see ya around :D IF not, that's cool too.

Oh, man, you're posting again? Just when I'd started to seriously consider shutting down my account . . .
