Mel Gibson Eat Your Brave Heart Out!

First of all , an apology for the barrage of e-mails on behalf of the Empire. (Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa) Thanks to all of you that responded to the YES Network challenge. I hope it goes off without a hitch and we kick their asses. Viewing party next week.

So much news...

Tonight at Thom's earn a degree in elocution. Andy Wasif will be there promoting his new book "How To Talk To A Yankee Fan." (Spoiler Warning: The answer is "Slowly".) He'll also be discussing the sequel he's working on: "Why Would You Want To Talk To A Yankee Fan?" The Sox are off, so there should be plenty of Yankee fans to practice on. Just remember to bring your high horse and the phrase, "Biggest choke ever".

Friday it's on!

The Sox begin their 5 game home series against the enemy with a 1pm game.

Then, at 4 o'clock stay in your seats and root on the kids from Portsmouth, NH as they face dreaded Beaverton, Oregon in Round 1 of the Little League World Series.

At 7 pm we begin again. The Sox face the Yankees in the nightcap of the double header. By then we should be an half game out of first.

At the same time we'll be holding a fundraiser for The Buddy Walk. Raffle tickets will be available throughout the game for $3 each. The prizes include: One month membership to Gold's Gym, A football autographed by Adam Viniateri, Two balls autographed by Jim Rice, Signed copies of Feeding The Monster and How To Talk To A Yankee Fan, A two-pack of pickles from Rick's Picks, Harpoon beer and shirts, and more. Get there early and play often. It's for a good cause.

What's on tap?

This weekend also marks the end of summer, Harpoon Summer, that is. We're down to our last 4 barrels. And when it's gone, that's it till next year. So drink up. On the horizon is a Bohemian Pilsner from Harpoon's 100 barrel series and a wicked good cranberry beer from Unibroue.

When the going gets tough
The tough get going
Tough, tough, huh, huh, huh
When the going gets tough, the tough get ready
Yeah, ooooh, du da do da

I got something to tell you
I got something to say
I'm gonna put this dream in motion
Never let nothing stand in my way
When the going gets tough
The tough get going

The inimitable Billy Ocean
