Bay of Pigs in a Blanket

Arturo, the hot dog vendor:
Nothing like a rest day to contemplate the ripening of a 7 and a half game lead, eh, Mr. Roy?


Arturo, the hot dog vendor:
Staht chillin' the espumante.


So, Arturo, what's with the Russian movin' a caht into your territory?


Arturo, the hot dog vendor:
Oh, no worries, the Russian's not a business threat.


How's that?


Arturo, the hot dog vendor:
Well, let's just say that his primary interest is not in the sale of hot dogs.


Ah, some "off menu" items, eh?


Arturo, the hot dog vendor:
Yeah, if you're in the know, you'll order "The Putin" with the works, hold the onions, and then aftah you satisfactorily answer a couple of firewall questions about the price of beets in Kiev you'll be given the details on meeting one of several dopey-eyed young ladies with Slavic origins and a questionable abidance.


Ah, the Russian Hotdog.


Arturo, the hot dog vendor:
Yes, always a favorite for the discerning customah.


Absolutely. I heard Putin fed one to Obama at the G20.


Arturo, the hot dog vendor:
Smaht diplomacy. Leading from behind and from below.


Seriously, it's détente... One must relax to take in the enormity of Russian diplomacy.



I prefer action like the Girardi-Showalter near fight, which is within their characters. Imagine if my best bud gave me a look like that?
Wonder where the immortal Rosa Klebb is now (Lotte Lenya RIP)They have a bunch of choices out there, some men, some women...

Watch out Arturo,I hear there's a fish adobo cart coming in next week ;O

Now it looks like Arturo will have to turn over all of his hotdogs to an international coalition. According to a statement, the coalition claims Arturo is "inflicting gas on his own people."

Oh, just arrived in Sydney. (Cape Breton Island, not Australia, sdu.)

sounds like two-f**kedher authentication is alive and well.



There are also a bunch of breweries that can generate a lot of gas. ;-)!

So the "magic" number is 12. And the Rays play 14 of their remaining 20 games against teams fighting for the playoffs, with 11 of those at home. The Red Sox play 12 of their remaining 17 games against playoff contenders, with 6 of those at home (and 3 at home against a non-contender).

As a wiser man once said, "The race may not always go to the swiftest, nor the contest to the strongest - but that's the way to bet."

Ah Schadenfreude,thy name is Tubesteak. ;D

I want to "thank" you for encouraging my Butler to put on a ghastly batch of so-called music.
Beats when his beloved Red Sawx screw up in his opinion and he gets disorderly.
