I have a bet with Barbara. She is a Yankees fan. I am not. She bet me that the Red Sox (of whom I am a fan) would have a worse finish to their season than the Yankees. Loser must post the logo of the other team on his/her blog for a week following the outcome.
The reason I am writing again, after telling you last time that I wouldn't be writing anything until I returned from vacation, is because I realize that the bet may be decided during my absence. If this turns out to be the case, I may never get to enjoy the fruits of my victory. I will not have any access to ye olde internet while I am in the mountains of New Hampshire.
Considering the outcomes of the first two games in their respective series (Red Sox win, Yankees lose) there is a distinct possibility that the bet may be decided by Sunday.
If I win - if the Red Sox win, and the Yankees lose - I want SOMEBODY to enjoy my victory.
I am therefore giving you my proxy, loyal reader. Please feel free to go to Barbara's place and say "In your FACE, Yankee Woman! Derek Jeter eats old smelly bananas! A-Rod is a poopy pants! And Clemens? Ooh! Ooh! Ooh! I got your rocket right here, Roger!!!"
Or, we could just be sporting chaps about the whole thing, accept our congratulations in a humble manner, and thank Barbara for being such a good sport.
Your choice - YOU are my representative.
Of course, if the unthinkable occurs - if the Yankees win and the Sox lose - I expect you all to ignore this entire thing. If you can't - if some Yankees fan gets all up in your grill about it - just remember this image...
... and smile.
See you soon.
