Red Sox Blog, but other Boston Sports Welcome!
Wow, quite a game so far. Living up to its billing.(Watch the final score be 13-12.)
Now its the 10th. Who would you go to after Papelbon?
Timlin works. Man, talk about timing. Alex Gonzalez! Best fielders choice ever.
A couple funny things about tonight's game.1. Kevin Garnett is at the game and sitting in the first row where a couple foul balls have come. The MN announcers made a big deal about it. And they kept cutting back to him and his date. At first they referred to him as KG's lady friend. and then it was his wife. For KG's sake, I hope it was his wife if he has one. the woman he was with, wife or otherwise, had no ring on.2. Reason 3,910,282 why I love my wife. The announcer must have made some comment about the big 34 they had etched on the field in memory of Kirby. and bless her heart for trying, she asked "do teams always do things like the the Twins do to honor players like Kirby Pawtucket." Then again, I probably pay about as much attention to her stories about shopping as she does to mine and the Sox.
And yes very sweet FC. Did the job, though.
Tavarez? Hmmmmm..."Kirby Pawtucket". That is awesome.
Yes that really sucked.
