Trailing the damn Devil Rays 5-2. Three homers for 5 runs for them, one by Northeastern's own Carlos Pena. Top of the ninth.
The lead is nine over the Yankees, but they are winning (5-4) over the Birds.
This time next week I will be back home from ReplayCon 07, a tabletop baseball gathering in Pittsburgh. I am ridiculously excited about this, almost to the point of being too excited, where it couldn't possibly be good enough to live up to what I want it to be. There's something about a room full of people who have the same stupid obsession as you.
Flyout to center. One down.
It's stupid, in my precarious financial and personal life, to spend time and money on a hobby.
Gary Glover is pitching. I "owned" him in a tabletop fantasy league a few years ago. He was lousy for me then, and the entire Tampa pitching staff is lousy this year. But it's hard as heck to score 3 runs in one inning, even against crummy pitching.
I preordered Madden 2008 this year, which is something I haven't done in a while. I spend way too much money on crap like that.
Yankees lead 6-4.
Varitek, pinch hitting, drew a walk, and the Tampa announcers, typically, are whining. I forget how good the Boston announcers are sometimes when I have to listen to these idiots.
I'm thirsty, but I'm not going to get up, just in case the rally continues.
I think Bronx is Burning, on ESPN, is brilliant TV, even though I hate the Yankees. I hated them then and I hate them now, but the show is extraordinary. The book, which I HAD to have, is good too.
I am also pleased Hard Knocks is coming back on HBO. That was a really good show.
Strikeout, then force out at second. Sox lose.
We took two out of three, and lost to Kazmir, so that isnt all that bad, but you really have to beat Tampa. You do. You just do.
