Too Clever by Half

I hate it when my brain thinks it's being funny and forgets to remind my fingers to complete the thought. The headline of yesterday's post reflects the fact that Edgardo AlFONZo hit game-winning homers in each of the Sox' losses to the Giants. Sure would have been nice for me to include that in the actual post itself.

In a related note, the Sox held Barry "Shut Up, You Ninny" Bonds pretty well in check during the series, allowing only 1 hit in 13 plate appearances, though they did walk him 5 times. It gets harder and harder to appreciate Bonds' incomprehensibly good statistics every time he opens his mouth. Apparently, Boston is a racist city, and will never change, according to Bonds - even though he's never played there. As a wise man once said, 'tis better to keep your mouth shut and have people think you're an idiot then to open it and confirm that you are. A pox on his house.

The Whitney Across America tour finds our hero in Denver this morning, after a stop in Kansas City on Sunday night. He and his traveling companion, Dave Pellicane, stayed up until 2:00 am throwing darts and drinking on Saturday night/Sunday morning, then jumped in the car at 6:00 am and drove for 16 hours. Well played, sirs.
