Gloom, Despair, and Agony....

By now, I'm sure all of you know the tragic news. Curt Schilling will not pitch this year. I'm very depressed by this.

All good things must come to an end, eventually, and Schilling's pitching career is no exception. I just thought I would get to see him pitch one more year.

I'll be in mourning for a few days.

On the bright side, the Sox actually won a series on the road. And hopefully, they can pick up tonight where they left off in '04 with the Cards.


See y'all later.

i see your time of arrival at Fenway grows closer. The Schill will be there to at least see i would think. take the tour is a must. take a pic from the monster if they take ya up there. eat a sausage by the guinness beer vendor inside. dont forget to go find the statue of Ted Williams. go to the souvenir store WAY before 2 hours before the game. go find the "red seat" out in the bleachers...its where williams hit the long ball. if you go in before the game, Remy and D.O. put on their pre-show right outside of the souvenir can watch them.
other than baseball, do the duck tour, walk the freedom trail, get on for things to do. if you need any heads up for eating, let me know

Bickley, sadly the boys haven't followed your script. It's up to Lester to save the series today.

Getting excited for you and the family's trip to Boston, man! I'm so ready to go back it's not even funny.

I was sad about Schill until I realized that he went out on a high note. If he never pitches again, he will have thrown his final pitch in a World Series for the winning team. And not just any team: *ours*. What better way to sum up his career? If he can pitch again, I wish him well, but I don't want him to go out like Clemens, holding on too long. (Not that I feel bad for Clemens by any stretch of the imagination. I just want Schill to go out on top.)

Geez, Dawn, you made me cry. But you're absolutely right. He's going out a bit of a hero.

Thanks for the tips, Tex. I have been there before (last year, in fact), so I've seent he Williams statue and taken the tour, although we didn't get to go on the Monster for that one. Maybe this year we will. I'll definitely take the tour again...I think it's part of our package. We get a pre-game reception with one of the players, too...just don't know who yet. Doesn't really will be a Red Sox player. I didn't know about the pre-game, so we will definitely try to catch that. I wish I could meet that radio guy that always says "Can you believe it??" Heh. I like him.

Ted, I know what you mean about being ready to go back. I almost wish I were homeless, so I could just sleep on the sidewalk on Yawkey Way.
