You know, I’d much rather have another 6 AM game than have a 10:30 PM game to start the season. The plus side is this gets one of the West Coast trips out of the way; the negative is that I’m going to be pretty tired tomorrow morning. Here’s hoping Matsuzaka picks up where he left off in the last few innings of Game 1.
On my way home from work last night, I surfed around my XM to catch some baseball games…and landed on Brewers/Cubs going into the bottom of the 9th with the Brewers up 3-0 and new closer Eric Gagne coming to the mound. Gagne proceeded to give up a hit, a walk, and a game-tying 3 run homer to FUCKUDOME (I’m going to love typing that guy’s name this year) before retiring a batter. He did eventually get the vulture win…but like the rest of you, I sure am glad to see him not in a Sox uni anymore.
