One night after SMC’s incredible catch (which is awesome but still makes me hate him, mostly for the 20 years of baseball games and zero foul balls I have to show for it), we are headed back to Fenway in both an attempt to catch another and in support of our favorite charity. Today is the first of two days of the WEEI/NESN Jimmy Fund radio telethon, and I want to encourage all of you out there to give whatever you can. I know that times are tough, but I’m pretty sure you all have 20 bucks to give to kids with cancer. It’s an awesome cause and should be a great night at the park with the Sox aiming for the sweep of the White Sox and alot of great people raising money to help heroic doctors and patients beat the shit out of cancer.
On a sadder note, Theo took another loss while the Sox won last night. For the second time this season, one of his Patriots style reclamation projects was thrown on the trash heap as Brad Penny, and his hot Ex Girlfriends were put on release waivers. It was fun at the start, but in the end Penny only won one of his last eleven decisions and looked like a pussy in doing it. Which is to say that I’m happy to see him go. Of course, this is for a happy reason because TImmmayyyy is back up to his old tricks for the Sox and the holes in the rotation are getting shallower by the day. Imagine bringing vintage 2008 Wiggler back in mid September, that’s like trading for a guy who will give you six quality innings every time out, just in time to catch the yanks and make another generation of Steinbrenner douches cry.
Off to the park, hope to see you there, and even if you cant make it please give to the Jimmy Fund this week.
