Had the BEST time at the Red Sox game against Texas on Wed. night. It was my 1st game this season! I LOVED the seats. They were close to home plate & were awesome. We were really close to the field in box seats! Red Sox won with a walk off run from Youk in the 12th innning! Grandslam by Drew, Varitek @ the plate & Papelbon on the mound in the 12th! McDonald was awesome! Now we need to get Ellsbury off the DL. If we still had Schilling & Bay we’d be looking real good!
And for all of you who were on Tek’s case last fall! Check out his batting average now!
OMG! I am so excited. When we got home today I had a phone message from NE Book Fair. I won Youk’s Kids Essay Contest for April & I get an autographed Kevin Youkilis baseball & I get a chance to win lunch with Kevin Youkilis after baseball season is over. I wrote about being a Kid Nation Captain & helping other kids & blogging about the Red Sox. Now if we can just sweep the Ya—– I can’t even type the name of that other team. YUCK!
The MVP for this game is Youk! This game had it all- home runs, 5 stolen bases, double plays & Papelbon. What more could you ask for? And here’s the Tampa Bay Gravestone I made last year during the World Series & had in my front yard. On May 27 I was crying because TB swept us but it just makes this victory all the sweeter.
For the record I’m not a fan of Dice-K. I think he’s paid too much, walks too many people & can’t last enough innings.
Now if we can just get the Red Sox to draft Catcher Alex Trezza
