Countdown is On....



Better bite down real hard Wily Mo...the season is just around the corner and the Red Sox still have questions for us. I found this pic of Wily Mo reading an article about baseball superstitions....he bites his bat??? well to each his own I always say as you know one of my philosophies I leave by is "To Thine Own Self Be True". There's absolutely no real reason or rhyme to this post. I just felt in necessary to get on line and update. I've been out of town this week in Tornado Alley. Glad to be back in Austin. Opening Day is Monday in Kansas City and I still won't have DirecTV hooked up which gives me a perfect reason to visit my fav watering hole Pluckers with some friends to catch the Red Sox play. It's been a long long winter for me. But like I posted on New Years...I feel I've turned a corner and finally things are looking up. Life is good so long as it's baseball season right? Each year I tell myself I'm going to slack up on going to games cos I should probably be spending the money on something more important...course then I come to my senses.

My itinerary for the year SO FAR:

April 6, 7, & 8 Arlington, TX The Ballpark Red Sox vs Rangers

May 25, 26, & 27 Arlington, TX The Ballpark Red Sox vs Rangers

June 22, 23, & 24 San Diego, CA Red Sox vs Padres

July 16 & 18 Boston Fenway Pahk, Red Sox vs Kansas City Royals

July 20 Boston Fenway Pahk, Red Sox vs Chicago White Sox

September 8 & 9 Baltimore, Camden Yards Red Sox vs Orioles

Hand Over that Bat Wily....I may need to chew on it too.

Tex, that is an AWESOME picture! I'm stoked for the season to start: been a long cold winter.

And I've been reading here since, what , December? I can tell a difference. I like to think your new little brother and his nutjob family have helped a little in your outlook! :)

'Cause all kidding aside, I'm really glad I've made myself a new friend. And I can't wait to meet her in Sept. along with Matty and hopefully Scotty.

Keep the Faith Texas!

so many people talk bad about the internet as a way of meeting people...and I know there are crazies out there. But I think Im a good judge of character...I think Wily Mo may be the player I get a tshirt for.

Ted D said...

WMP is a good choice, but I'm going Texas: my next shirt is Josh Beckett.

Tex, i got a lotta laughs tonight, which I needed. Thanks for being a part of it!

Tex said...

well of course i mean AFTER i get my Beckett shirt :)

John said...

Your itinerary is amazing. I make that 14 games and counting?
I'll be at the three in SD of course, the most in a season since my 5 in 1999.
It's less than three months away! WooHoo, as the younguns say.

I am not sure about Wily mo this season.I hope he does well though!

Matt said...

Tex, I'm really looking forward to B-more! You're already like family to me and Ted. And I think Wily Mo is a perfect choice for a shirt. I think I'm going Wake. My Kap shirt may have to be retired in his honor.

Kaylee said...

thats why......I dont mess with people on the internet except for you guys over on teds blog and SG

Tex said...

Camden is gonna rock out with all of us there!!

Ted D said...

Tex, where have you been tonight? And Baltimore is gonna be great.

I second what Matty said: you are already an honorary member of the family. However, if you wish to disavow this bunch of nutjobs, I would not blame you!

3 days 'till opening day. I can't wait.

Tex said...

ya think this single girl just sits at home on a friday night?

Ted D said...

No Tex, I KNOW you just don't sit around at home! Just missed your smiling voice after a hard day at market. If I had to work like this year round, Angie would divorce me: poor thing is pulling her hair out with me not getting home until late for the last week.

Have a great Saturday Texas!

Kaylee said...

Tex said...
