Remove shoes before entering, please

Everyone anxiously awaits Game 3 of the ALDS at 4pm in the Fens …

Susan/Circle:
Is it wrong to envision a sweep here?

 

Mike:
Hey, if imagining a sweep is wrong, then I don't want to be right.

 

Susan/Circle:
Yeah, like Squeaky writes, the scars from last October are healed. "I'm not expecting the other shoe to drop anymore."

 

Mike:
Yeah, fuck the other shoe. Screw that whole expression. Who the fuck drops their shoes anyway? And why does this second shoe cause so much terror? It's just a shoe for fuck's sake. [Laughs]

 

Susan/Circle:
Alas, no more shoes, then. And while we're at it, no more of this writing on the walls either. Who are these retahds doing all this scribbling? Haven't they ever heard of instant messaging fercrissakes? Nobody reads walls anymore. That's so 1st Century.

 

Mike:
Right on, walls are for scoreboards, screens, and clanking doubles off.

 

Susan/Circle:
The skinny cornrow kid gets the start today. Any reticence over that choice?

 

Mike:
Not in the least. Arroyo went 5-0 with a 3.74 ERA in his final nine starts and I'm just not in the mood for the knuckleball this afternoon.

 

Susan/Circle:
Agreed. God willing, October 8th shall become the Feast of Saint Bronson, sweeper of Angels, patron of cornrows and high leg kicks.

I have to believe the "other shoe" thing started with some horrible mishap on Mr. Rogers Neighborhood.

Hilarious, hb. Bronson is going to pitch the game of his life today. I am sure of this. The halos are going to limp out of the Fens just as they limped in.

Sweep the Leg!!!

I have tickets for game 4, but I don't want to use them. I'll be ducking out of work and heading into NYC to watch at the Riv. Go Sox!!

One thing I have to say about Francona. He has shown an amazing amount of testicular fortitude. He's playing to win as opposed what many (inclding myself) mistook as a Little League, play everyone mentality. I've slammed this guy here and now I'd like to give him some richly deserved credit. But remember the old saying "A pat on the back is only 10 inches away from a kick in the ass." By the way, St. Louis scares the co-co puffs out of me.

"testicular fortitude" classic. Can John Kruk show testicular fortitude? Or is that scientifically impossible.

What a great use of Typepad & being a Sports Fan!
