There was a terrible tragedy last weekend! In fact It was so horrible that I can't even bring myself to explain it. Please click here: Terrible Tragedy.
Ok, so that was a dirty trick I had to lessen the blow of the bad news somehow with something so disturbing that you would be immune from anger. I was thinking of you. Really. (Can you believe that Stallone said "Life's not all sunshine and rainbows" in that trailer? Balboa is quoting Old Man Dunphy from "Outside Providence". Christ! If he's quoting Dunphy the movie can't be all that bad. I'm just worried what Bunny Cote is going to think of those boxing gloves.)
The real bad news is that the letter written by the Red Sox to our own Jim McGuire and signed by many of you which was framed and hung at Professor Thom's was stolen from the wall this weekend. (Read more about this at The Mighty Quinn Media Machine.)
If you have any information on who stole it, please don't tell us. Jim's far too pretty to go to jail. If you look on the stage on the back wall you will see a hole where there once was a cherished memory.
(Please click for atmosphere.)
We won't let this get us down though. We will persevere. We've been through tough times before and we will go on. This is a time when we must come together in a show of support. So, come on down to Professor Thom's. Misery loves company. Come share a beer with a fellow sufferer. We'll do our part; we will be showing the Red Sox play the Athletics all weekend! We'll even offer 20 oz Harpoon UFO (hefeweizen) for $5 during the games.
We are not afraid, we are not afraid
We are not afraid today
Oh deep in my heart, I do believe
That we shall overcome someday
