The Cap...


So I got this new Red Sox cap last year...

Pretty different, got a lot of comments on it...

Anyway, I started wearing it to work last year during the Sox playoff run...the run where they lost 3 in a row to Cleveland. So I wear it in the night the Sox are facing elimination to Cleveland. Barry, one of the guys that works in my building and has commented on my new cap, comes into my office with a piece of paper in his hand. He picks up my cap and throws it into one of the cabinets and closes the cabinet door. He then takes a piece of tape and tapes the paper he brought in to the door of the cabinet. It read...

Rob's Doomsday Cap
Not a "LUCKY" Cap!

We had a good laugh, and I left the hat in that cabinet that night...The sox Won that game, so the Cap stayed in the cabinet for the rest of the playoffs and Boston Won the World Series.

When the Sox made the playoffs this year, brought the cap in to work, put it in the same cabinet. The sign Barry had made was still hanging on the inside of the cabinet door (Musta put it there after I took the cap out last year.) Barry had a good laugh when he saw the sign, and checked for the cap.

About 10pm last night, The Sox are losing 5-0, Barry comes into my office, Opens the cabinet, takes out the cap and puts it on my head. He then says..."It's not working, we got to try something else." Then after giving up two more runs, the Sox manage to score 8 runs in 2 1/3 innings and win the game. Just happens to be the greatest comeback in a playoff game in the last 75 years.

Just had to share...

Red Sox down 3-1

Here we go again...Sox in an ALCS and have to play 3 must win games in a row.

Some of the Radio guys pointed out that the only guys on this team from '04 are Papi, Tek, Wake and Timlin...and they are all playing pretty bad.

I'm keeping the faith...DiceK going tonight, and he has never pitched bad in a HUGE game.

I joked that someone should Call Kevin Millar and get him to Fenway for another one of his case he doesn't, we can use last years.

Painting Battletech again...

Hey Folks,

I had some spare time and when I went to paint up those new space marines...I noticed I was out of white spray primer. So I grabbed some older Battlemechs I had sitting on my "House Kurita" shelf that had been collecting dust for 3 years or so...
