FINALLY.



Manny turned 36 yesterday but decided not to overshadow his birthday with his 500th HomeRun Event....so he waited till tonight. You know so he can celebrate two days in row from now on. During the 7 th inning when no one was on base....of course so it would be only him crossing the plate. The Man Child finally made it. After a slump of a time...waiting and waiting...I just knew that he'd do it for Ted and me when we were at Fenway in the middle of May...but NOoooooooooooooooooooooo. Manny's on Manny Time and Tonight was the Night...and OF COURSE...Kelly and Cyn were THERE!!! Beth, Crystal and Horsham were there as well. So alittle of SG helped Manny out and were a part of history. Congrats Manny...now when ya gonna hit #600? :)

video Excerpt from the Globe today in answer to my question: {Ramirez has already assured one and all that he intends to hit 600. Last night, his goal was more modest. "I want to hit 501."}

Tex, even though it wasn't for us, how cool is it that SG got to be a part of history?

Manny being Manny has never been better.

TEX!

Hope the move has been ok. Sounds like at least you have a nice little kid to greet you when you come home.

Nice to see the boys back in Fenway, no??

:)

Tex said...

the little kid is simply adorable. She is quite the personality too. and a bit of a diva. unlike me and her mama

It was an amazing experience. I don't normally get emotional but I was tearing up when he hit #500. Knowing that there have only been 23 other days like that and I was there was overwhelming.

I wonder where we'll all be for #600? Let's hope it's in a Sox uniform.
