One More For The Road


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.

Ooooh - You are so NAUGHTY, you are! Well,um, yeah all right, I guess we can watch your back for a bit - but just don't make a habit of it, okay? (tee-hee)

See you soon, Big Fella' - enjoy!

BTW - how the heck will I know who's won?? Crap.

Suldog said...

Heh. I love how the first person to "watch my back" is from the UK. Don't worry - if I win, no problem. If I lose, you'll hear my screams right across the ocean.

Do you suppose she could hold that bat under her boobs and not let it fall? Would be worth a look-see!

Jessica said...

I am a Phillies fan and they are currently breaking my heart. I'm still rooting for our likely one more game.

Barbara said...

If the Yankees win Suldog I'll be sure to let all your readers know.

Barbara said...

Suldog - It's Sunday and it's not over.

Favorite Yankee fan that is--

Patricia said...

As a a loyal yankee fan and friend of Barbara's, I simply must quote one of the most famous Yankees of all, "It ain't over til it's over."

BTW, nice to meet ya!

Melissa said...

Oh ya. That Tribe win was nice. Now we play your team Sully.

Go Tribe!

Stu said...

Come back from vacation... Shane! Come back!!

Dave said...

Congrats on the win! The Sox logo definitely classes up her site. :)

Shame the Yankees weren't good enough to make the ALCS. Oh well, you bet with fans of inferior teams and that's the risk you run.

Barbara said...

That logo is a blight upon my blog. I can't wait until it's gone.

Inferior? I think not.

Hey, Jim,

How's ya holiday going? I'm kinda thinking it might be fun to revive my sportswriting career and critique the Sox.

What'd I call it? Sox education?!!

Watching you, all the way from Oz ...
