Seriously, they don't

Mike:
One month into the 2012 season and I think we're stahting to get a feel for what we've got here...

 

Al:
I'm not getting any warm fuzzies ovah the distance that needs to be traveled here.

 

Doug:
Hmmm, Let's say the 2012 Red Sox are an airliner TRAVELING AT 10,000 FEET...

 

Doug:
AND LET'S SAY THERE'S NO LANDING GEAR AND NOWHERE TO LAND.

 

Doug:
AND FUEL IS LIMITED. AND ONE HAS A GENERAL IDEA OF WHEN THE FUEL IS GOING TO RUN OUT.

 

Doug:
GIVEN THIS KNOWLEDGE, then, IS "TRAVEL" REALLY THE RIGHT WORD?

 

Mike:
That metaphor sounds familiar.

 

Doug:
Of course it does. Sub .500 teams don't get their own original expositions.

...and it's been such a long exposition ;O

To all of you that grabbed a seat on the plane, I wish you well. You should have taken the bus.

Can a plane also be a bandwagon? I suppose one of those military transport planes would do the trick.

Most men flying seem to understand
That a man technically hasn’t flown ‘til he lands
If you’re coming into land and you crash and die,
All you really did for sure was get too high.


You ever get too high?
Yeah, neither have I.


-- My main man Todd Snider

Icarus,Icarus,Icarus...drone on ye faded Sox.

with apologies to John Hartford, it's a steam powered aeroplane

So suddenly
I saw that we
Never ever would arrive.
He put the plane down in the sea.
The end of flight number 505.
The end of flight number 505.

Still plenty of room om the bus, folks! Don't be shy!!

Can I just say that plane crash metaphors really freak me the fuck out?

As someone who lives on an island that requires (at the very least) a 7 hour flight to see friends or family I...I just cant do it.
I feel my anxiety creep up, I'm twitchy and sweaty and a little bit jittery, even now, just commenting on this creepy website.

Okay, it works as an analogy for this season thus far, but fuck me, it's gets my bowels a-shakin'.

This season is developing into an eerie clone of "Lost". ParkerStPete, thanks for bringing up a great old Stones Reggae/Boogie woogie classic.
RIP Brian Jones and Ian Stewart. Boogie on!

I am going to buck the trend. I am creating a boat to compete with Natalie's bus. I'm calling it Denial Cruiser and you're all welcome aboard! On this boat, the Red Sox just battled back from a pretty dismal start to eke out .500, but no way are they stopping there! 92-70 isn't an unrealistic pipe dream, it's the over/under.


If you'd told yourself a week ago Friday that the Sox would be hovering around .500, you'd have been thrilled, right? On Denial Cruiser, that wasn't a surprise, that was a long-expected surge!


We will be greeted as liberators.

We have always been at war with Eastasia.


(and save a seat for me on the bus, just in case ... when this high crashes, it's not going to be pretty).

Wow, Junior Seau was shot to death.

Looks like a suicide.

holy shit!

Ahh, the Expos. I remember watching Le Grand Orange, Rusty Staub in little Jarry Park. THAT WAS AN ENDLESS FLIGHT. Tom Seaver hit a game winning HR...christ, I'm old. Gimme a rocking chair and gettoffa my porch sonny.

Ah, SAC. Yes yes. Saw Willie Stargell hit one into the swimming pool out beyond right field. And Hal King catching with a plywood mitt, whiz, clank, thud, the ball almost always winding up on la terre. You 're welcome to a rocker on my porch any time, we'll shoo the whippersnappers away.

Hey Harwich, I believe that was from the Department of Redundancy Department.

Down in no, jazzfest, hope to find long lost nolasox, here to confirm test drive of bus is in fact succesful. Drink, etc and sox tanking is in fact a good fucking time. We have a winner.
