Two words should be enough for this massive missive: RedSox, Yankees.
(They should be, but they're not, because I'm a verbose bastard.)
It's time again to take on the MFY. It's in Boston, so you should be at Thom's.
This time around the Socks find themselves up a game and an half looking to leave the MASH Unit Formerly Known As The Yankees in the dust. Chacon went on the DL today and Giambi is due to hurt himself with that grotesque smile of his any day now. As always there will be give-aways and raffles and booze. Yes booze. So come on down.
In The News
Big thanks to Tessie who sent us a DVD of the footage the Red Sox took at Thom's a couple of weeks ago. The interviews with Jim McGuire, the regulars, and me appeared on "Red Sox Stories" last Sunday on TV38. Just to think that I was on a show that in someway supplanted "The Movie Loft" is enough to make this boy from Brighton cry. Look for a screening of the show at Thom's in the near future ( i.e. everyday).
Pick up a copy of today's post to read what your bartender, Jim McGuire, has to say about accepting contracts to build the new Toilet. Oh hell, I'll just tell you: 'Red Sox fans said they're happy to leave the job to a New York company. "They'll overpay and be disappointed - just like having A-Rod on their team," said Jim McGuire, co-owner of Professor Thom's, a Bosox-friendly bar in Manhattan.' Like Savoir Faire, Jim's everywhere.
"Did he ever return,
No he never returned
And his fate is still unlearn'd He may ride forever 'neath the streets of Boston He's the man who never returned."
