Something I Thought I'd Never Say

That's what I've said.

You'll have to go to the pages of the Boston Herald to find out what it is. Sorry!

(The Boston Herald is a fine newspaper. Me sending you there does not require an apology. It's just that I realize it's a hardship for you to click on a link to get to what you might have thought you'd find here without traveling elsewhere. So, to make up for it, you're all invited to the party I'm going to throw in, say 2037, when I win a Pulitzer. I will be serving FREE dill pickles, so bring a napkin.)

Here's the link that will get you where you need to go.

In the meantime, I'm going to go out and buy a few jugs of dill pickles just in case the Pulitzer committee decides I should get my prize now.

Soon, with more better stuff.

P.S. The photo of dill pickles came from here. Maybe if he wins a Pulitzer before I do, he'll serve you some pickles. If so, mazel tov!

Well, heck, in 1957, Ted Williams was still playing for the Sawx. . . (and my goodness, no Patriots in '57. . . I mean, Detroit has been a four-sport town since. . . well gosh, when did the Pistons move from Fort Wayne? Probably after '57, wasn't it?)

I know what you mean about the overlap of the seasons, but over here, Opening Day is still a big deal, and the Tigers' home opener is an all-day party. ('Course, the Pistons haven't been to the playoffs for 5-6 years, and it's been a while since the Red Wings got past the 1st or 2nd round. . .)

The sports people have done it to themselves, oversaturating us until we don't care any more. How sad.

Based upon what Craig said, I remember where the Atlanta Braves were before they moved to Milwaukee... and, of course, where the Oakland Athletics played before they move to Kansas City.

That, and I remember where the Rams played before they became the NFL's traveling team.

OMG... I think that means I might be getting old?

Well... the good news is that you'll have another opening day to get excited about (or not) because of all this snow.

Now, the real question is... will there be bread and butter pickles as well???

Suldog said...

All - Yes, I have decided that every type of pickle will be available :-)

Irony. I "watched" the game. And by watch, I mean I joined a few neighbours who included me in their get together to watch their highly-anticipated opening game between our Jays and your Sox.

Half-sours for me, please!
