The Red Sox Have Their Independence Day Firework Show
I did not get to see the first 7 innings of the game. There was a spectacular fireworks show in downtown Hartford, and we all had a great time. It was on the way home, with the radio tuned into WTIC, the voice of the Sox here in Connecticut for nearly 60 years, that I realized that the Red Sox put on quite the display of fireworks of their own. Mikey Lowell with 3 doubles, and Papi and Manny with 2 home runs, EACH. Now with the benefit of hindsight, I wish I had set the DVR to catch a 1 hour replay. No such luck. Wait! I've got it! Maybe, just maybe, the Sox haven't finished with their Independence Day fireworks. The second half might be scheduled for this very afternoon, down in Florida. I feel much better now. Oh, and Craig Hansen is doing just fine in his one inning stints, becoming part of the 2 man bridge, with Mike Timlin, to Papelbon. We didn't need Paps last night. We were just fine without him, and we are 4 games up on the Yankees and the soon to be in second place Blue Jays. Don't stumble, Georgie. Oh, he did just that on his way out of the Stadium last night, and when asked about RJ's performance, he seemed confused, as he mumbled that RJ "looked OK." That from the NY Times, this morning.
