Rock Lobster

Here we go again...

I have to admit, I really do not understand this completely. We are playing a four game series against the Yankees even though we're 8 and oh against them? Shouldn't they have to play against Pawtucket a few times first to earn an inning or two with us? Oh, well I guess I shouldn't complain.

I mean we have been in first place all year-hold on a second. I have to check something. Wait, this can't be right. We're not in first!? But, we have three catchers. One of them is named Victor. That means "winner" in, ahm, English! And the third one who is hanging out on the sidelines until Wakefield returns is named Kotteras which is Greek for "teacher of Special Guidance Remedial Academics". We're the winners. Oh, now I understand why we have to play them. Because after we win four straight we will be back in first forever. Phew! I feel much better now.

Well, at least it's a good excuse to hang out with some old friends. I mean, you are coming by this week, right? Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. What else could you possibly have to do? If you do decide to come in you can get some info about the two buses going to Fenway August 22 to see the Sox host the Yankees. Hmm, hmm? Not too shabby, hey? Also, you find out what these Lobster Mondays are all about at Thom's. Lobster! Hmm, hmm?

Thommies in The News

Next Monday, we'll have the Sox, cheap lobster, and immediately following the Red Sox game, the broadcast event you've all been waiting for. It's the network premiere of "The Lost Son of Havana" at 10 pm. Do not miss this film. You'll fall in love with Luis Tiant all over again. This film is a must-see for any baseball fan.

And, speaking of Thommies in the news, Thom Brady is on "Entourage" Sunday with Markie Mark sans Funkie Bunch.

We were at a party
His ear lobe fell in the deep
Someone reached in and grabbed it
It was a rock lobster
