On an amusing note, Andy and I finally figured out who it is Mark Bellhorn reminds us of: DB Sweeney, star of the fabulous early-90's chick flick The Cutting Edge.
Just thought I'd point that out.
Meanwhile... (Update, 5/28/04)
Normally I try to make this blog fresh and original (!), assuming that most people who read it also read Bambino's Curse, Soxaholix, and BDD, and so if I see something amusing on any of those sites, I tend to tip my cap to them and not link it here. But there are two links I have for you this morning that are simply too good not to mention:
The Red Seat: Best. T-shirts. Ever. Did I mention my birthday is July 6?
WESTWOOD, Mass. -- Boston ace Curt Schilling helped police catch a man driving erratically Tuesday night, hours after he led the Red Sox to a win over the Oakland Athletics.
Schilling was headed to his suburban Boston home when he spotted a car driving unevenly on Route 109 in Westwood, a two-lane highway. He called police on his cell phone, and police tracked the driver down and pulled him over.
"We just noticed somebody almost cause two head-on collisions," Schilling said after the Red Sox's game Thursday. "It was obvious they were either hurt or impaired. I have four kids. When I'm gone from home, people like that terrify me."
Police responded promptly, Schilling said.
"They did an unbelievable job," he said.
The dispatcher who answered the phone at the Westwood Police Department on Thursday said there would be no one available to comment on the incident until Friday morning.
Yes, not only will Curt win us a World Series and singlehandedly make Derek Lowe into a Cy Young winner, he'll also vanquish the long-standing Curse of the Boston Driver. No word yet on his plans to finish the Big Dig.
A poster to BC had this to say about Curt last night:
Let me ask: does it bother anyone that Curt Schilling is a faker? I'm sure anything he does is pure gold to this crowd, but seriously, he's all into the Pats and the Bruins now, wearing the YH hat...In an interview he said he would love to play for the Yanks! (This was before Boston signed him of course, and I'm paraphrasing, can't remember the quote). I read in ESPN magazine that like 75% of the league wishes he would shut up. Maybe they're jealous, but he is a loudmouth.
And I had this to say back:
actually, as the girl with a HUGE crush on no. 38, i can say...no. i know he's a politician, but his glibness is part of the overall attractiveness of the whole package.
i love his media savvy. i love the fact that he's magnanimous and extroverted.
and hey, we've ripped pete and manny et al for years in this town for NOT talking. now we're going to rip a guy who does, huh? that's pretty shitty.
I mean seriously. Come on. If we're going to be like that, it's no wonder God hates us*.
