I'm growing used to this

For the 2012 season, whenever the Red Sox are below .500, the regular Friday edition of Soxaholix is canceled …

In a group of Soxaholix, a woman speaks:
Get out your funeral finest, people, because there's going to be a burial.


In a group of Soxaholix, a woman speaks:
That's right, the Eurozone is dead.


In a group of Soxaholix, a woman speaks:
Let’s face it: the question is not if, but when.


In a group of Soxaholix, a woman speaks:
Verdammte Scheisse.


In a group of Soxaholix, a woman speaks:
Oh, and I'll be leaving at noon for a round of golf... I'm getting fierce with the 5 iron, absolutely fierce.



She needs to use that 5-iron on Beckett's shitty attitude...

Oh, and congrats Celtics. Thanks for "giving me the extra gas" -- and not in a Red Sox, fried chicken, Bobby V's restaurant sort of way.

This is beyond "train wreck"...or as a college chum from Michigan used to say, "a boating accident"

But to me it's more of an "autopsy"


Has a team ever tried starting its bullpen and using the rotation as relief? Last night was really damning for Beckett.

Heh, Eurozone. What a truly awesome idea, a way to make small players a big player, optimize resources, stabilize currency, open up trade,........ Except they forgot that they had to work with actual people, which means working with stupid. Maybe thats the Redsox management problem, great ideas except for having to get actual people to perform. I am down on people right now. They disappoint so frequently.

Now if she'd just stop staring at that guys fierce five iron ;O

Hell of a thing killin' a team; ya take away all it's got an all it's ever gonna have.

Is the Eurozone anywhere near the fun zone?

FWIW Bob, I say go for the Sox gig. You gots the pipes, and we could have creepy site meetings in ur office

Oh, and sdu- I did as you asked and booed the crap out of Mr 7 over par last night. Me and several others of the *cough* 37K in attendance. It was easily the best thing witnessed at Fenway this year

It's Beckett's 'fuck you' attitude,about golf, about chicken & beer etc. that is even more infuriating than his shitty pitching. What a douche.

Beckett whining about his limited days off was amazing. Apparently he has been taking "How to connect with the middle class" lessons from Romney."

" Apparently he has been taking 'How to connect with the middle class" lessons from Romney.'"

Or perhaps from our beloved and most mercifully cool slow jamming King Obama, who, you know, "forgets sometimes" that there is a recession. :)

I can forgive the President, all Presidents are out of touch. it comes with the demands of the job. They exist in a completely insular world.

Romney is unemployed, as he likes to remind us.

In his defense, Mittens does have some connection with the great unwashed. He apparently worked as an apprentice barber during high school.

Heh. Well played Yaz.

Yeah, agreed, all that slow jamming and evolving is fucking demanding. I feel for the dude. Plus OMG he's so friggin cool! Can I get a hollah! Forward!

Tee hee. This is gonna be a fun political season. Just ask Keith Judd.

Doing the jamming, cool thing works on voters. Mud slinging works. Evolving works. Acting like middle class when you are not works. Lying works. Silly should never have been believed messages of hope work. Mission accomplished worked.

Refer back to previous comments about people. The redsox demise I can laugh at. The political situation makes me want to go start a new country.

Ah, chill out Jeff... it's always been this way in politics.

And if you started a new country, same thing would happen. It's just the way we are. People.

I enjoy the crap out of it and it drives me insane at the same time. In the end, you cast your vote and say WTF and move one.

move on that should be, but moving one always feels pretty good as well.

Just got back from moving one-what'd I miss??

Lol. But if I started a new country I could deny entry to Booby V! I hear its good to be the King. Well, until someone shoots you.

Uh, no, booby V's are good. bobby v on the other hand.

Bringing it back to baseball for a moment...

I haven't seen a single article or anything even slightly critical of the new pitching coach Bob McClure. How is he getting a total pass on overseeing the best paid and worst performing pitching staff in baseball?


I'm pretty sure he gets a pass for all those times he helped John Henry pick out a scarf.



Is Bob McClure related to Troy? Because that would explain a lot.

Oh and the boating accident sells out yet again

1) That faint sound you hear is Milton Friedman's ghost, John Major/William Hague-era Tories, and other Euro-skeptics that were labeled "Neanderthals" and worse in the 90s ROFLMAO-ing

2) I'm voting for Romney for only one reason: Oversight. Only when the GOP is in the WH do the media pursue their "4th estate" role. The Executive branch has become far too powerful in the past 50 years, and for obvious ideological reasons the media let Democratic Presidents off the hook. It's good to debate things like...
-Patriot Act
-CIA Rendition
-Using drones to ice bad guys at will.
-Blanket authority to off American citizens abroad
-Guantanamo Bay and the constitutionality of military tribunals
...but there are no 10k word essays in NYT about "THE IMPERIAL PRESIDENCY" with Dems in the Oval Office.

I don't think I can handle Camp David being relocated to Hill Cumorah.

hb: Where's the clip art of a guy w/ a paper bag over his head?

Was that you buckner?

Golf! What is it really good for?

Paper bag guy: "Who cares. This team sucks."
Mazz: "Nothing if you're winning"
Beckett: "Fuck you"

New bet: Who gets traded/fired first: Bobby V or Beckett?

Ah yes!!! West Virginia: Keith Judd gets 40% of the Dem vote and WV leads the league in Google searches of the "N" word. You can look it up. And they let those mutants drive, breed, vote. Where is the sense in that?
And I finally figured out who you are Jason O. You are that miscreant puke in "Good Will Hunting" who memorizes bits of obscure Econ texts and tries to make poor BAflack feel dumb. Too easy. Lets chat about Reimann Tensors, eh? Besides, I got her f-ing phone number. I look at Romney and - incredulously - see the same level of corruption I saw in Nixon. And wonder: how can you "people" not see? Maybe it's the acid.


You should have typed that in ALL CAPS. That would have been cool.

I friggin love that hillbilly dance they do in West Virginia.

Ooof. Politics. I'm gonna be here in the back of the bus sparking up. Who's joining me?

Wow, glad I missed the political debate around here. In the meantime, here's something I think the Soxaholix would appreciate.


Here's Eminem's take:

I did get jumped, by all six of you chumps
And Wink did fuck my girl
I'm still standin here screamin "FUCK THE FREE WORLD!"
Don't never try to judge me dude
You don't know what the fuck I've been through
But I know something about you
You went to Cranbrook, that's a private school
What's the matter dawg, you embarrassed?
This guy's a gangster; his real name's Clarence
And Clarence lives at home with both parents
And Clarence's parents have a real good marriage
This guy don't wanna battle, he's shook
'Cause ain't no such things as half-way crooks'
He's scared to death, he's scared to look
at his fucking yearbook, fuck Cranbrook

Sort of thought the triple ! was cool enough. And speaking of All Caps: I love me some Moonbeam McSwine.

Here's my ode to West Virginia.

I'm with you Nat- and far away from the partisan bickering. Shocked that we haven't made it to Godwin's Law territory yet...

For what it's worth, hb, you can blow Monday off. Hop on the trolley, if the T can keep them running on Monday, that is...

@Buckner - thanx; I knew I could count on you. What a creep (JB, not BWF).

Going to the Harvard Club for Mother's Day. Because nothing says "I love you Mom" like Harvard. (Actually, their buffet is pretty good. And for me, free.)

Anyway, have a great weekend all. Hopefully we'll have something fun to yak about on Monday.

Oh, SDU, Tim Cushman (the chef and co-owner at O Ya) just won the James Beard Award for Best Chef in the Northeast.

I'm at the bus stop, Natalie. Pick me up. Thanks.

Funny Bob, I just recommended O Ya to another Australian visitor to Boston. I was wondering if it was still keeping up standards.

Two wins in a row! I picked a pretty challenging season to try this whole "mindless optimism" bit but I'll play it for what it's worth. Possibly with some chemical assistance.

PS - we were thrilled with one win per week from the Pats, right?

PPS - Am I the only one who couldn't care less what Beckett or any other player does in their free time?

How is it that the snappy, witty, clever people posting Sox-related comments turn uninformed and superficial when the subject turns political?

So, it's possible that HB may have to work on Friday. (Early season reverse gooch.)
