The Odyssey

Game 60 - Red Sox

Orioles 6, Red Sox 3
Record: 35-25

Finally, tonight Odysseus stumbles onto the beach at Ithaca, his epic journey complete, his body wracked and weary.

Helios got Papi, for at least a month, and the Scylla ripped a hole in Matsuzaka's shoulder at the same time the Charybdis made Okajima serve up a meatball to Adam Jones. Circe turned Coco Crisp into a newt (I may be mixing metaphors here), while Julio Lugo and J.D. Drew spent the fortnight drunk on her wine. The fleet Ellsbury, the steadfast Youkilis and the heroic Ramirez finally steered the ship homeward, where the crew now faces the challenge posed by the Suitors, those usurpers from Tampa.

Meanwhile, Nick's gonna call me a dork again.

Penelope's looking pretty good, though.
