Spinning Right Round

"More baseball!" said the man who was bored at work.

"And so it shall be!" said....... someone else.

Here I sit, listening to my beloved Red Sox put a pasting on the hapless Tampa Bay Devil Rays (what's the opposite of 'hapless?' hap? hapful?), and I'm feeling very content indeed. Why? Well, not only do I experience the joy of listening to the Red Sox at work (and radio is the only way to experience play-by-play. Turn the TV down, yo. Radio UP!) but I get to leave work in about 15 minutes, pick up some friends and head on up to Lowell (the only downside) to catch the Sox' Single-A affiliate Lowell Spinners kick some Batavia Muckdog ass. As you may know I'm a big fan of minor league baseball, and this trip to Lowell will be a special one for two reasons. Once concluded, both me and my friend Andrew (who will be in attendance as well) can say we've been to a game at every single level of the Red Sox organization. Yep A, AA, AAA, and big leagues. Now that's some dedication! Ladies and gentleman, put your hands together. And, as an added bonus, playing with the Spinners on a rehab assignment is newly (re)signed Red Sox journeyman Gabe Kapler. Yes folks, he's back from Japan and will be ready to join the big boys as soon as he irons out the kinks in Lowell. Should be interesting to see how well he does against the young'ns on the farm team.

Because I have to leave here soon however, I'm rather pressed for time and thus have no more of that precious commodity to write. So, I'm going to sign off here with promises to chat later this week - probably tomorrow. Have a good one folks.

P.S. Oh yeah, I didn't win the iPod. I'm not pleased, but I have only myself to blame. Jinxed myself by writing about it in the first place.

I'm sorry to hear you didn't win an iPod. After all your efforts and calculations, how could that be???
