"I can and shall yield to no call that does not come from the spontaneous action and free will of the nation at large and void of the slightest agency of my own . . . In no case can I permit myself to be a candidate of any part, or yield myself to any party schemes."
For a moment last night the bar had the fever. You know, that feeling you get watching these New England teams down late, expecting a come back. And, when it happened all erupted. Matt Cassel had trouble connecting all night, but when he did it was a big one to Randy Moss in the corner of the end zone who fought off a bear hug by Ty Law. It was Marc Wilson to Hart Lee Dykes all over again. And like those Patsies of my high school years, it was all for naught. Brett Favre and the Jets screen passed the crap out of us and took first place by a field goal. Luckily, we have a long time to prepare for our next game versus Miami (11/23).
Don’t look now, but the Bruins are becoming the talk of the town. While the Pats were kicking field goals in the first half last night the Bruins were keeping pace with a 6-1 win over the Canadiens breaking a 12 game losing streak versus the Habs.
And, don’t get me started on the Celts. Lots to watch right now. So, we’ve decided to extend the Sox $4 Thom’s special to the Celts and Bruins games. Just make sure you ask your bartender for the special.
And speaking of special…
So you know by now that Red Sox Nation has a Governor or two. But, did you know that it also has an Ambassador to Westchester, a Minister of Propagander, and a Comptroller of Kickbacks (Indicted)? These powerful posts, ignoble men and women one and all, will be feted at Professor Thom’s next Thursday for the gala inaugural ball. What is a gala inaugural ball? It’s basically the official winter gathering to celebrate and complain about the season past and to joke about the name Nick Swisher. For the festivities a winter warmer is in order so what better than Harpoon’s offering, Winter Warmer: hot stove in a bottle.
Harpoon will be on hand giving out cases of beer and t-shirts and other stuff for free. And speaking of Harpoon, next month we’ll be pouring their Baltic Porter along with a few clams in a little night we like to call Clamapalooza. (Details to follow.)
