Catching up...



That's what us Red Sox fans have been looking at for the vast majority of the season - Tampa Bay in first place, Sox in 2nd. Personally, I thought they would have started slipping from that number 1 spot back in June before the All-Star break. But it never happened. We had the chance to retake that spot last night with a dead-lock tie for first, with 12 games left to go.

The other day, I actually saw a Tampa Bay fan up here while shopping at the supermarket. I felt like saying to him "SERIOUSLY. You're kidding, right? No - wait, you're wearing that ironically, right? You're trying to jinx them so they'll lose, yeah? No? Well do you remember where you are?" I had to snicker to myself.

Despite the 2 wins, the post-Tom Brady era isn't all that exciting, and one of my 2 fantasy teams has suffered for it, having picked Randy Moss in the first round with the 3rd pick overall. Grrr...

In other news, it's been great getting out of the house for boys night out the last couple weeks. D, who was the best man in my wedding, whom I thought I had a falling out with about a year ago, is now back in touch. Nothing like some male camraderie when you're around a bunch of women all day. Even at work, I only have 2 other males in my department, the other 4 are women, outnumbering us.

Have some random pictures from the last month or so.

Interesting sunset through the screen.

Good to get out with friends of the same sex from time to time.

It's funny, all my life I've been closer friends with girls rather than guys. Jess would rather be friends with guys rahter than girls. For some reason I never really felt like "one of the guys" even though my love for sports was instilled by my dad, I wasn't one to work on the roof or the deck with him, ya know, real manly work. I never really had that machismo in my although I do have a competitive spirit.

I have always been more friendly with the boys myself. Jess and I have that in common.

As I got older I found the company of woman comforting.

Redbeard, I'm with you; I thought the Rays would have been in our rear view mirror a long time ago. Guess we've gotta deal with reality now, huh?

Glad to hear you are getting some time out with the fellas; my trip to Boston was my first ever trip by myself and I realized I needed to do that once a year; can't wait to get back up to Mecca.

I read in the sport section yesterday that the Sox are now taking Tampa Bay seriously. Apparently the Rays are not going to fade as expected. But they lost today. So, as I write this they are only up one and a half. The finish should be interesting to all.

I'm not sure I understand more than a minimum of your post, and especially not the comment by Max :) Never mind, I do like the random pictures. And I do like blokes.

Let the Sunbeams have all the band wagon fans. They still can't fill their pit of a dome and when they do, at least half the fans are for the *other* team.
