last night here in boston the yankees took the first game of this series against the red sox. i was watching the game on tv - the first time i have looked at anything on television for quite a few months. when the score was 1-1, and the red sox pitcher had wiggled out of a couple of dangerous situations with yankees on base, i decided i had to make the ultimate sacrifice, and turned off the tv. and it worked - we won! have to be careful with the schadenfreude, though, since there are still a couple of games to go over the weekend.
nb just found an excellent name for a player, currently with the mets. he is called angel pagan. really truly he is. look here.
