The Boston Red Sox: Defenders of the 2004 World Championship!! "Whoever plunges into his experiences with the momentum of hope, will remember so that he cannot forget." - Soren Kierkegaard.

It's not the curse of the Bambino, it's the curse of Sarah and Mike. Whenever we're around to watch live feed of the game, the Sox always lose, never fail. They looked a little lackluster today, honestly, except for some seventh inning excitement that consisted of Mirabelli and J.D. going deep one after the other. JD extended his hitting streak to 16 games.
In other news, Manny's grandma died again - no wait, his mother fainted - oh no wait a minute, it was his hamstring. Ya, that's right, his hamstring - ya, that's the ticket! - Anyway, Manny was a late scratch from the lineup but did make an appearance as a pinch hitter late in the game. It looked like Schilling was reading him the riot act before the game. I'm sure that the media is going to blow this way out of proportion, but I really wish they wouldn't.
Congrats to David Ortiz and his wife for the birth of their son D'Angelo!
I don't think I'll be making any posts until after the All-Star Break, so ta-ta for now!
