SG links to a touching Globe feature story on the fall of former Sox relief pitcher Sammy Stewart. A wrenching but fascinating read--there's something in there about the bittersweet and quasi-redemptive nature of baseball I can't quite put my finger on, but it made me mope around being all introspective for a while just the same.
I bet you didn't know that Curt Schilling has founded a gaming company called Green Monster Games, and that he is already at work promoting it to the gaming community, though he has said he plans to honor his 2007 contract with the Sox. The game is going to be a massively multiplayer online role playing game, or MMORPG, which is sometimes pronounced "more-peg", and I'm going to stop right now before someone gives me an atomic wedgie and stuffs me in a locker.
Although now I know that Curt Schilling might protect me if that were to happen.
Boooooooooooooo to the new football commissioner for wanting to eliminate crowd noise as a home field advantage. Hoo-ray Cold Hard Football Facts for taking him incisively and humorously to task.
So apparently it's been the least watched World Series in television history, adjusted, I'm assuming, for population inflation. I know it has been in my household, anyway--don't really have a clear cut reason, either. I have a team I like--the Tigers--and I really do love baseball, but I have very, very limited free time in my life anymore, free time that means sometimes cruel prioritization of activities must take place. If the Red Sox aren't in it, watching the World Series gets bumped pretty far down that priority list.
I might finally get around to watching a game tonight, though. Then it just becomes a matter of finding time to post about it. Blah.
