Now That's More Like It

This is much better. Boston wins 5-0 over the struggling Tigers. The Tigers whom Sports Illustrated picked to win the World Series this year. The Tigers who are 0-7. I know. It's just the second week. I just think it's funny.

Dice-K leads the league in strikeouts, too. That's great. And Youk is still errorless, but I've lost count. How many consecutive games now?

And just to show what great fans the Red Sox have, Bill Buckner was welcomed at Fenway Park today to throw out the first pitch for the home opener. The guy that everybody blames for the '86 World Series received a standing ovation for at least a solid minute, maybe 2. It was very touching. I swear I saw him wipe a tear from his eye a couple times. He would probably say it was dust.

On this side of the world, the Rangers lost their home opener to Red Sox nemeses, the Baltimore Orioles, who are obviously cheating somehow. Heh. It wouldn't hurt the Rangers to help the Sox a little, here, would it??

Man, it's good to be talking about actual games again. I love baseball season.

TTFN, y'all!

Bickley, let's just hope the Tigers don't wake up until after they leave Fenway.
