What a week! Sometimes I cry when we lose a game but all of a sudden losing last niight doesn’t seem quite as important as some of the other things going on.
I’m so sad to hear Jerry Remy had cancer and has been sick. I hope he gets well. I met him last year at a Kid Nation Captain board meeting & he was awesome. When i can’t go to Fenway for a game I always watch Remy on NESN.
I’m still really angry at Joba Chamberlain for throwing at the heads of our players. I think he does it on purpose. This has been going on since 2007. First Youk & now Bay. I don’t understand why he is allowed to get away with all that stuff. I hope he gets suspended before someone really gets hurt. I don’t want to see anyone get beaned like Tony C. did.
Now Manny doing steroids. Geesh. I almost got sick when I heard this. I don’t know why anyone drinks alcohol or does drugs. Last week I wrote an essay for iwontcheat.com about what I would say to my favorite baseball player if he was caught cheating or using steroids.
So now this is what I would say to Manny.
When Mannny refused to play last year & we lost games because of his attitude I forgave him. I even cried the 1st time I saw him in a Dodgers uniform even though I thought he was a traitor for not playing his best when he was a Red Sox. . He’s supposed to be an example to kids everywhere and now I think he’s a bigger loser than I did after he threw a game for the Yankees last season. Now everybody is going to criticize the Red Sox and think our team are cheaters because of Manny. I even heard someone say today we didn’t deserve to win the WS in 2004 because Manny was probably on drugs then. He hurt kids, all baseball fans, all baseball players, his teammates on the Dodgers & the Red Sox because of what he did. He is a cheater. I would rather see a player strike out & play fair than get a home run by using steroids. Manny- you need to grow up, respect yourself, play fair & stop being a jerk!.
I haven’t been around much because my Nana died and we were out of town. But don’t forget to watch the Red Sox game on NESN Wednesday night. The Red Sox called last week and I was invited to be on the Roush Fenway Racing Pre-Game Ceremony with some other kids from Red Sox Kid nation. This will be my 5th game this year.
Voting for the Kid Nation Captains contest ended Sunday but they haven’t announced the winners yet. I’m so excited and so nervous. I’m going crazy waiting. I hope I win.
I am SO HAPPY Curt Schilling is doing okay after his operation. Man I hope he can play baseball again after he gets better.
Actually I hope all our guys on the DL get better soon. But I’d rather have them on the DL now than when we’re in the play offs.
And congrats to Jerry Remy on 20 years with NESN. REM DAWG ROCKS
