« One Game Back, One Game at a Time | Main | Red Sox Extend New Deal for Theo Epstein »

September 16, 2008



I agree on most points, but not the Maddon thing. C'mon, you of all people should know that this guy deserves a whole lot of credit for them finally getting out of the cellar this year. You respect the game too much to reduce yourself to ragging on the way a guy looks. He's turned a terrible franchise into a team that the Red Sox finally caught up to in September, after three months atop the East. I'm not saying you have to like him, but I do think he deserves a little respect...

Now, if he coached for the Skankees, that'd be another story...

I've given the whole Rays organization a ton of credit throughout the entire year, and yes Joe Maddon has a lot to with their great season.

I still think Maddon's a D-Bag though. He's whined in the past rather loudly about "MLB bias" towards the Red Sox and Yankees, and like it or not, he's the bad guy now.

Plus that and he looks like the love child of Rivers Cuomo and Craig Finn.

He should come out with his own baseball video game.....and talk about turduckens too.

There's some people who just rub you the wrong way, and he does for me.


I roared with laughter when I hear them playing Sweet Caroline. To me, that showed more of playful sense of humour than spite.

I never want to take myself or baseball so seriously that I can't take some (well deserved) razzing from the opponents.

Derek Hixon

Weird, but good for you, I just remember that particular game was a tough one because they swept us (when they played it) and it just seemed a little too soon to be that cocky.

But sh**, maybe that's why they've been so good this year, having a carefree/cocky attitude can be great in sports if used wisely. I just thought the sound guy went a little over the top there, especially since they can't even sell the place out.

I also grew up in NY and was constantly belittled with 1918 and curse abuse so I think I'm a little scarred from that...yeah.

C'mon sawxblog, your guys may have smeared
the Rays that first night, but how 'bout
dem Rays and those other two games that keeps
your Sox in stitches. Ha! Ha! Get real
with the facts; that bunch of kids in St.
Pete have shown the entire world what will
happen when you take the devil out of your life. The good Lord works in many ways!

Derek Hixon

Jim, read the next post, give Rays their due props for sure. And as far as the devil quote goes, can't tell if you're serious or not, but either way, hilarious :-)

2005 BDD Playoff Push Party

  • Bar & TV's and Boston Dirt Dogs had a playoff push party at Game On! in Fenway Park on September 19. The game didn't go so well as the Sox lost, however, a lot of people had a good time hanging out while getting to "meet" the trophy!

2004 World Series: Game One

  • Mounted Police
    My brother Chris flew into Boston from Chicago to help me root on and pull for the Sox in the Series. We went right from Logan Airport to the Park and ended up watching the game across the street from Fenway at Bills Bar on Landsdown Street. We looked into scalping tickets but standing room only were going for $1,200 and up!This was a great and memorable day to be able to be with my brother in Boston to see the Red Sox in the World Series. This is a snap shot of two weeks of my life that provided a lot of sorrow, joy, sleep deprivation, and hangovers. Two of the best weeks of my life...
