Face of Pain

My big fat head is not normally this big and fatHey! Does you face hurt? Well it's killing me, ha ha ha. I am the living punchline to a 5 year-old's joke. I have had some sort of severe toxic reaction to poison ivy this weekend. This morning my eyes were so swollen I couldn't open them when I woke up. Now I'm on mega doses of Prednisone to get rid of my elephantitis. Since it's a steroid I'm hoping it will give my baseball career a boost too.

Red Sox Celebration

Championship Banner Unfurls at FenwayAfter opening this season in Japan, the Red Sox finally had their home opener and had the final celebration of the 2007 World Series Championship in a grand show that they've become quite good at putting on. Members from championship Patriots, Bruins and Celtics teams were all on hand as were the trophies. I think this was the first time all four major sports championship trophies won by Boston teams were together at once.

Here is a great column "Anything but a Yankees fan" by Boston Globe's Kevin Cullen that really sums up living in New England. He's got a few years on me, but everything he writes rings very true for me and most folks I know around these parts.
