Distraction

Games 123 & 124 - Red Sox

Blue Jays 4, Red Sox 1
Blue Jays 15, Red Sox 4
Record: 71-53

I love the Olympics. Always have. I'm a sucker for the pageantry, the pressure, the pure athletic joy. And thanks to the good people of Beijing, I like them for an entirely new reason this year: the ongoing quadrennial hypefest meant that I didn't have to pay a lick of attention to the dreadful performance of Josh Beckett and the Olde Towne Team this weekend.

Here's hoping Usain Bolt does something cool tonight.

My team had an off day, so I had an off day.
