“…in the last five years…” doesn’t mean anything!

August 6, 2006

I ran across the funniest quote today while reading the Sox “TC’s Mailbag” on Boston.com.

but the Yankees have seemed invincible before (for example, when they added A-Rod in ’04, Randy Johnson in ’05, and Johnny Damon in ’06) and have less World Series titles than the Sox in the last five years.”

Seriously? This Sox fan is high. They say “World Series titles in the last five years” as if the Sox have won 4 of 5 – or even 2! 5 years in baseball doesn’t mean much of anything!! Try the last 88 years?!? That would be Yankees 24 and Sox 1. Seriously. People are funny.

Not only that – he had to say the last 5 years cause 5 years ago – the Yanks won it THREE TIMES IN A ROW! Three. In a row. C’mon – they Yanks didn’t even win it for the whole of the 80’s and half of the 90’s – that doesn’t make them any less of a force now.

Piffle. People say funny things.

A fabulous baseball weekend…even if someone stole my chicken.

July 9, 2006

If you knew how easily I move on after boyfriends, you would be in awe to know I am still broken hearted about this last one. *sigh* I’m working on it though.
I went with a friend to the Phillies game Friday night. I got the fireworks out of my system. They had an amazing fireworks show! It made me feel better after missing the 4th of july.

So I wake Saturday morning. Almost Saturday afternoon I guess. I’m thinking – that game was fun. I should go to another. So I rented a car and drove to DC to hit a Nationals game. Yes, that’s me.

I posted a fun post on Craigslist (that’s how I roll) – and found a boy to hang out with.

The game was great. Well, it was great if you’re a Padres fan. Not so good if you’re a Nats fan 😉 Anyway – Young was pitching for the Padres, and he’s on my fantasy baseball team – so I was so rooting for him (5-2 they won!). And I love Mike Cameron, who used to be on the Mariners – and he hit a homer on his first at bat.

I bought a Nationals “Eagle”(seriously – it’s a CHICKEN!) – spent $30 on the damn thing – and someone STOLE it after the game at the bar. I was pretty pissed.

The I stayed in DC, and went to a cool outdoor sports bar for the World Cup Game (Yeah! Italia!). I drove home today – all sportsed out and chickenless. I can’t even find one on line. If you see one – let me know!

Fireworks at the BallPark….
