Nice George Harrison reference on what would've been his 70th birthday yesterday--

I was hoping to see Gene, Gene the Dancing Machine or the young ladies who knew how to lick popsicles.  :(

Tim Wakefield for pitching coach!  It's the only logical choice.

I'd like to think of your video as cinema verite, Red.  It was gritty and in-your-face (with the WTFs).  It was also funny, moving, and thought-provoking (like why any of the beers advertised in the scorecard were deemed to suitable for consumption).  I hope you do more videos that allow us to reminisce.

Thank you so much for uploading Wake's ceremony.  It "got dusty" for me several times while watching it.  The video proves again not only what kind of great, charitable work Wake did (and will do) off the field, but how those people were touched by him and wanted to say, "Thanks."   Having his old teammates, friends, and family there also shows how loved and respected he is.  There will never be another player like #49.  They broke the mold after him.

So, at least we know why Lester, Beckett, and Lackey love chicken and beer.  It's in their code.

Yeah, I agree. However, who knows what he could do in the NL (probably not 15 but maybe 10-11 wins). Barry is his agent. He's just trying to sell his client's services (even though it was hyperbole). Like any agent, you dig through the baloney to get to the crux of the matter. I think the Sox know what Wake has done and probably what he can do when he turns 46 next year. They just need to decide if they need their binky (Wake) one more year, or if they can find a suitable replacement (which they haven't done the last few years).

Freakin' awesome, Red! You're "en fuego." Super stuff! (Carrie Fisher's roast of George at the AFI Awards a number of years ago seemed to show that they're "friendly.")

So, basically, we need to snatch Dougie Fresh away from his real estate business and have him lead the Sox in 2012. To Traverse City in the Batmobile--

I loved Wake's interview with Heidi. You could see that he was choked up by the cheers and standing O. As Chad Finn said in one of his tweets, one of the reasons why people like Wake is that he is gracious and genuine in his appreciation of the fans, his teammates, and the city of Boston. Now, he needs another seven to get another champagne shower from Paps. :)

Perchance to dream as well--

Red, I didn't think that you would be that high on Jacoby's list (as Shaughnessy would be #1). You were probably between the kid who stole Jacoby's milk money in fifth grade and Nick Markakis.

Off-topic item--Happy 45th Birthday, Wake! May you keep knuckling at least for the foreseeable future.

Interesting that the Sox picked up Charlie Haeger-- Already planning for the next-generation knuckleballer as Wake probably calls it quits in 2012?

Here's to Wake making the Pirates think that getting all of their teeth pulled by Dr. Wakefield would be better than facing him.

I can't believe that Mike and I both love EBTG. Wow! Baseball is a strange sport. :)

Were the yellow and red-topped gals in a rush to get dressed? It looks like they have the other person's top (or bottom). Russell, you sly dog!
