I ask you, how can I possibly see the Sox any other way now? Believe me, I don't take for granted the opportunity for one sec, even though Dave finds my allegiance to the Sox odd because I didn't grow up in MA (New state motto: When we say equal, we mean equal), and I'm not a nutcase about the sport itself. I just like choosing a team and sticking with it through thick/thin.
I remained true to the team even after we moved to the Midwest, and Dave jumped ship to become a MN Twins fan. He said he'd had 40 years of being fan of a losing team, after which my Boys from Boston promptly won the Series. Ah, the sweet smell of "I told you so..."
Tonight, we're headed to Brookline to watch Boston play some team from Cali, oh yeah, the Giants. And even though I love watching the players -- cause, sheesh, they're so strong, and such fine specimens of the the body human in it's glory (and I love the pants) -- I have to admit I've got a little crush on BoSox cutie GM, Theo Epstein.
What else have we done on our vacation this week? Slept. A lot. Ate. A lot. Watched E. Read. Vegged. And yesterday I had lunch with Bella/author Caroline Linden, who's got a new novel coming out in September. And Tuesday, I hooked up with Suzanne Brockmann to chat about "Force of Nature" and some of the cool stuff we're planning at LifetimeTV.com for its release in August.
So here's a few pics of BoSox guys, Theo, Twins pitcher, Joe Nathan, who's a thing of beauty on the field, and, well, Hugh, just because we haven't seen him in a while.
So I ask you, can you be a fan of a team without being a fanatic for the game? And, who's your favorite hottie athlete?
Encore! Check back Monday for Debbie G's winner!
