I need to let go here.
First of all, congrats to LA, hope you guys go all the way.
Driving in to Boston this morning, I was listening to the Steve Earle radio gig he does on Sirius. He was paying tribute to the great Bakersfield, CA country musicians like Buck Owens. Dwight Yoakum was big time in the mix, too. Love songs, sad songs, and drinking songs.
Thinking back, maybe a tribute to Texas musicians would have been better?
Hit the Eastern Standard bar at 10:15 AM, had a couple of very tasty drafts & headed off to Fenway. Met my brother there, and headed to the seats. What a beautiful day.
I really can’t remember a more electric atmosphere at Fenway – you could feel it the second we walked in.
It was Sweet Caroline at the bottom of the 7th, then it all fell apart. It was like living high in the penthouse, then falling into a pile of shit. A stunned crowd at Fenway.
Friggin’ Papelbon – but I’m not going to go there. I’ll just get more aggravated.
LA deserves the win. Hope they go all the way.
Back to the drinking songs
