Oddly enough... I'm going to say something positive here. In watching tonights game, and quite honestly even when he was pitching for the Mets... I just didnt have the "hate" for Pedro any more. He's done alot of shi**y things in his past... throwing Zimmer to the ground, regardless of who came at who was disgraceful. The guy was over 70 years old. Not cool. Head hunting and sending multiple yankees to the hospital back in the days when about 10x as many Yankees got hit than Sox players did(thanks Joe Torre) was also lame.

But this is a new time. The Sox are far in the rear viw for him... and tonight he was just a member of a team that I dont hate, but in fact like. If the Phillies were not playing the Yankees i'd root for them. They are an easy team to like.

I'll say this though. Some of this payroll stuff is a little exaggerated with the hate and venom. The talent on these two teams is VERY even. The difference is that players hold out for massive amounts of $ when the Yankees are bidders. That hikes up the payroll an easy 50 million right there.

I guess every sport needs a Juggernaut. Anyway the point was Pedro. I def agree he was the best pither to ever play for the Sox. And while I'd say Manny+Fertility drugs and HGH and Big Syringe did more to get you over the hump then Pedro did... he was def a big reason.

Had to throw in a little rib at the end. Cheers... heres to game 3. Happy watching.

    This was the first time I've been to a game with my Dad since the early 90's and it was just awesome, especially with everything that happened with my Mom a few weeks ago. I know she was watching the game with us and had to have been happy to see us happy.

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...
