Versus and Verses

“Heaven. I’m in Heaven…”

I just will never get tired of three games on the same day. No. Nay. Never. The Celts, The Broons, and The Sox?  And the last two times it happened they all won.  Today they have yet another chance for the trifecta. 

At 3:30 the Sox take on the Angels. I can’t really make an accurate prediction on the outcome of this game.  It is regular season after all.  So, the Angels have a real chance. 

Then at 7 pm, it’s your favorite funk band Big Baby and the Starbury Surprise.  Yes, they’re coming to you live from Orlando with all of your favorites like, “FU Rafer” and “Van Gundy’s ‘stache”, and of course who could forget “The Magic Has Gone but the Green Remains”.  Game 6 tonight with the Celts up 3-2.

And at 8 pm we get down to bidness. No Bruins team has ever come back from a 3 games to 1 deficit to win a best of 7 series.  Tonight is game 7 from the Garden-the third leg of the triple crown is the biggest one. Pittsburg waits in the wings after annihilating the Caps last night.  Bidness!

The Bard is back. It’s been sometime since we had a bard on our ball club, or even a Bard, and it’s due time we do again. (note: rewrite that sentence later)  So, you know what that means: Shakespeare quotes.  Yeah, we all love them and how neatly they fit in baseball.  How about this one:

"O, how this spring of love resembleth
The uncertain glory of an April day;
Which now shows all the beauty of the sun,
And by and by a cloud takes all away."

Obviously, that refers to the opening game of baseball season.

Or, how about this from Roger Clemens’ press conference 2 minutes ago:

"Be not afraid of greatness: some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon 'em."

Oh Roger.

If you haven’t seen this clip yet, please do now before it’s all over Boston radio.  Keep in my mind, when this guy isn’t ridiculing A-Rod, he’s playing with the BSO.  That’s what separates Red Sox fans from the rest.

It’s a new season so we need some fresh blood. The Governor of RSN NY needs your help.  Do you have an official post that you feel you’d be perfect for?  E-mail it to me and it’s yours after approval from a gubernatorial committee.  check out some of the posts already taken for guidance in your choice.


Heaven... I'm in heaven,
And the cares that hung around me through the week,
Seem to vanish like a gambler's lucky streak.

-Irving Berlin
