The Day The Red Sox Stole Thanksgiving
It was quiet on Yawkey Way after a less than stellar 2014. The Red Sox swore they wouldnít sign old guys to long term contracts. The visions of too much cash on hand and not enough bang for the buck was the thought. They tried to develop the young which made it fun. †As the three grinches conjured up a plan their hearts shrank at the †TV ratings and being in last I may effect the gate although all the tickets were sold just ask them.. Their thinking was too get pitching that they hand and gave away. One starter as fragile as he wonít cut it.Our motto was we wonít pay more than three years but then again we make the rules and we can break the rules..
So they thought long and they thought hard. They† didnít care for all the Beans being tossed in Beantown. Because ultimately,they were the bean counters. They talked, they simmered and they brewed .Then the laughed at 9bucks a brew. The team a few miles down the road was stealing headlines left and right. They thought hard they thought long and they didnít want to fight.
So they looked and they paid and they looked some more. They came up a plan. A plan that would bring the ratings back. A plan that would get all of Beantown back. A plan so diabolical they would again be on top.
Then they thought some more, we had a Ramirez for a while and we had two at one time kind both same. We will have to pull out the old Hammy excuse but what they hey. The new kids †were slacking and the ratings were lacking..So they said after nine years he is still hacking.
From their perch on Yawkey way. They said we will pay. We will bring the Panda and give him extra Turkey and Trimmings and We will bring back another Ramirez. We will use them to market and maybe replace †the deshelved old Wally with a larger than life panda. Maybe we will cross breed them and sell millions of stuffed Wallty Pandas.
Than with a flash we have all or Manny excuses this time it will be hanly being Hanly. Missing Games will use the Hanlyís hammie excuse.
As Beantown was getting ready, the kids home form college , with the new girl or the new beau. It was time it was time to still Benatowns thinking from turkey and Gravy . To thoughts of Pandas and Hanly being Hanly b.rs. Beantown was a buzz with giving thanks and the Red Sox came in and took it away with talks of Rotations and lineups. But alas they had one more big fish to fry and they again laughed at the luxury tax. They had their eyes set on a top notch guy. A guy they could of kept only few monthes earlier. Talk in Beantown went from giving thanks to getting a rotation and that how the Red Sox stole Thanks Giving.
The Boston Bruins have been screwed, yes the NHL has screwed one of their elite best franchises. The Bruins have played on Black Friday at noon for as long as I can remember and certainly as long as the 20 year old New Garden has existed. The Bruins were always followed with a The Celtics playing the night cap. This year the NHL and NBC have decided that the Rangers and Flyers will play at Noon. Meaning the bruins canít play due to some contractual arrangement. The Bruins will be playing at ^;30 and the Celtics are on the road. I hate when TV screws with tradition that Friday afternoon game was usually fun family game. Thanks NHL and Thanks NBC for screwing with tradition Damn I forgot to give Thanks.
Lil Warriors Report
The boys lately have taken on a Big Bad Bruin or a Broad Street Bully persona. They are spending lots and lots of time in the penalty box sometimes 3 deep. Of couse if your always playing short handed you canít win.. Another loss this past weekend. But I have to share at one point there were 3 in the box one on a matching roughing, one on a High stick and one for a perfect check except they canít check at this level. There in the box and one says itís party and they start raising their hands and singing. Of course I got called in a sub coach. I was next to them on the bench. I was killing myself laughing inside . outside I went into coaches mode and just said knock that shit off.
I drew the 127 meeting of Malden Golden Tornadoes and the Medford Mustangs. Of course there has been good office banter this week my boss and our Intern are both Mustangs and fo me while I was a Golden Tornado. There werenít many games last week so I got my first weekend off since August. I enjoyed it even raked leaves.
