Opening Day, Part II: Stateside

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.

    That’s like saying Boras will no longer take clients. It will never happen. You are stuck with the guy who once insulted Magic and once pulled a freeze-out on Michael Jordan in an All-Star game. Thomas is your city’s cancer.

    BOSTON — A red-tailed hawk attacked a girl on a tour of Fenway Park Thursday, drawing blood and sending the girl to a hospital for treatment.

    Raw Video: Fenway Park Hawk

    The middle school student was touring Fenway with a group from the Memorial Boulevard Middle School in Bristol, Conn., when she came within 40 feet of a nest the hawk had built on an overhang near the press box.

    The protective hawk swooped down on the girl, its talons cutting her head above her eyes. She was taken to Children’s Hospital by ambulance where she was treated and released.

    “The girl is fine,” said Red Sox spokeswoman Susan Goodenow.

    Raptors often build nests at Fenway Park during the off-season. “Massachusetts Fish and Wildlife was already scheduled to visit Fenway today to look at the nest. They were on the way when the attack happened,” Goodenow said.

    A hawk was videotaped by reporters touring Fenway earlier this week when it perched on a railing outside luxury suites at the ballpark.

    The nest and the egg were removed from Fenway by the Boston Animal Rescue League. The hawk flew off after the attack.
