No Tears (For Now)

The holiday weekend was tough on Sox fans, as they club continued to find itself, taking only 1 of 3 from a mediocre Atlanta team …

Bill:
Well, I suppose the days were made to be wasted … the years and the loves were made to be wasted … [phone rings]

 

Doug:
Dude, cheer the fuck up. We can't cry, and it helps to laugh — it's like letting out dreams, ideals, poisons …

 

Bill:
Fuck, you're right. Christ should have laughed on the cross, it would have petrified his killers … [Laughs]

 

Doug:
Now you're talking. These next ten games, all against those who'd usurp the wild card crown, will be a good litmus

 

Bill:
Yeah, and at least now the Sox are not all sugarcoating the problem anymore, no more feel our pain bullshit.

 


Bill:
Big fucking whoop. Did you hear that 60% of American teens have never fucking heard of Canada? [Laughs]

 

Author's Notes

Comments
