1a. Also - stop having Tanyon fucking Sturtze come into tight ballgames. In fact, stop having Tanyon Sturtze do anything.
1b. I'd love to have some sort of snappy thing to say about Johnny Damon getting booed, but I don't. From a Yankee fan's perspective, I was actually hoping he'd get at least SOME cheers. Alas, he didn't. The fans holding up "Judas Damon" posters and "Johnny, We Hardly Knew Ye" posters are fucking idiots, and if they ever decide to go look for a new job that pays them better, and their old job declines to match the new job's offer so they take the new job instead, I will go to their cubicle/gas station/hot dog stand and boo them in turn.
Again, that's just my gut reaction. I claim no insight into the mind of the Red Sox fan. I will say this, though. Hypothetically speaking, if Derek Jeter or Mariano Rivera signed with the Red Sox after their contracts ran out, I'd absolutely cheer them at their Yankee Stadium debut. I'd be shocked and horrified and appalled, of course, but I'd still give them standing Os, no questions asked. Also, if Tanyon Sturtze signed with the Red Sox, I would take off all my clothes and dance naked in the street.
2. Forgot to mention this - after a great deal of searching this weekend, I found my mom's copy of "A Handmaid's Tale", which I've begun to devour. A slightly different beast than "Blind Assassin" - actually, it's sorta interesting to think that the wierd sci-fi bits in BA are closer to her heart than the rest of it.
3. Kath leaves for Barcelona in 7 days. Me and the puppies are going to be so sad.
