Red Sox Nation Loyalty

I am a big baseball fan and tonight’s game was Red Sox baseball. We could of quit, walked away, tossed in the towel and called it a season but we (ah, not so fast . . . so many people did. My friends who texted me, went to bed, gave up, cursed the Sox, etc.) I didn’t. I believed! Or, I also had so much caffeine in my system from working out tonight too that I couldn’t have even thought about going to bed.

The game was about over with the Rays up 7-0. I thought so too. I did. I even went far enough to give the Rays credit and wish them the best in the World Series. I will also admit that I do think the Rays are a better team than the Sox but we have a series.

Becket will go on the mound Saturday night and we will have a great game in Tampa.

Why is this so exciting? This is the American Game and the Red Sox are America’s team. Yes, not the Yankees! Who cares about the Yankees anyways.

Tonight was perseverance, passion, hard work, dedication, commitment, teamwork, loyalty. Tonight was why we love the game of baseball.

Tonight was a night I will never forget.

By the way, my wife is feeling really ill with major stomach cramps. I don’t know what happened but she got back from the gym and was bent over in such pain that she thought we would have to go to the hospital. I was pissed . . . I’m like, “Dude, we can’t go to the hospital the game is on.” I was thinking hard about what I should do. I mean should I give her A LOT OF benedryl, punch her in the head, fall deathly ill myself and go down to ManTown so I could watch the game and maybe she would feel bad for me or if she was ready to die with internal bleeding should I call 9-1-1?

I got her saltine crackers a ginger ale and told the dog to keep her company. Thank God for a good dog and crackers. I slowly left and watched the game and pretended that I cared and said, “If you are not good by 1:00 am we can go to the hospital.” I just checked on her and she is sleeping . . . Wow!

I think we would have gotten divorced had she made me go to the hospital during this game. I mean internal bleeding and cramps really aren’t that bad, are they?

Do you think I am wrong? This is Red Sox baseball.

This is Red Sox Loyalty. Don’t ever question my loyalty to Red Sox Nation.

PS – The Yankees Suck

PSS – I’ll blog tomorrow about my wife and her internal injuries but I am thankful I didn’t have to go to the hospital.
