It's Opening Day at Fenway! I swear, I can't believe how excited I am about this team already. Now, I realize we are just a week into the season, but I need to gloat about the fact that the Red Sox are 5 and 1, while that other team just south of us is 2 and 4, and at the bottom of the division. Juvenile? Yes. But these boys have plenty of weeks ahead to break our hearts; I have to get it in while I can.
Seriously though, Trot Nixon is on fire already: slugging .600, with 2 HR's and 7 RBI's in just 6 games. Papelbon just slid flawlessly into being the closer with ease. I feel a little bad for Foulke though, with all the speculation on how he's going to come back from the knee surgery only to have a crappy first showing and then have to watch this kid rack up 3 saves in 4 appearances. Whatever, it's a business first and foremost, as we all know. Anyway game time is 2:05 EST. :) NESN HD kicks ass!
Speaking of ass, I swear to God this dog is going to ruin every pair of pants I own. (And Dave, he's too young for puppy school right now!) This morning, he was loving my pink VS pj bottoms. They are cotton, wide legged, and fall just above my ankle. Well, at one point he grabbed on, and between him tugging and me twisting and bending over to push him off I looked like the girl in the old Coppertone ad. LOL. Too early for tan lines though. I can't wait until summer.
Off to wade through laundry. Someday I'll have something thoughtful and meaningful composed to post here again.
