A Dog in the Road

An off day for the Red Sox leaves the Soxaholix feeling empty …

Mike:
Amazing how we can go through the entire hot stove season without baseball, but once the season starts, an off day … well, how's your head?

 

Doug:
Empty. Yours?

 

Mike:
Full.

 

Doug:
Of emptiness?

 

Mike:
Yes. Exactly.

 

Doug:
Today there was a dog in the road. He just stood there looking at the oncoming cars. I thought he might bark, but no. He just looked. I felt such a comradery. Myself and this dog, standing our ground in the midst of a brutal foreign routine …

 

Mike:
Even SoSH has been quiet.

 

Doug:
Yes, the big excitement was reading mother fucking Yankees fan Michele go all petulant on our asses.

 

Mike:
Yeah, typical malcontent Yankees fan, she was channeling her boys Jeff Nelson and Karim Garcia … [Laughs]

 

Doug:
Seen the forecast? Rain, rain, rain. Motherfuck everything but the weather. Let weather come through and through and through.

 

Author's Notes:
Doug's dog speech and weather speech are rooted in Letters to Wendy's passages, 2/15/97 and 2/21/97.
