Hockey is fun.

In eighth grade, a new AHL team, the Springfield Falcons, moved into our area. I’m not sure why we started going, but a little way through the school year when the season began, my father, two of my friends, and I would attend games every so often. My friends and I, to understate it a […]

Notre Dame game, and other firsts.

Yesterday turned out to be a day of firsts for me: I attended a football game for the first time in my life. Yes, it took me nearly 27 years to get out to a stadium and watch men throw around a oddly shaped brown ball, but hey, I have my reasons! My public high […]

Break = over!

Aaand, I’m back. Did you miss me? I took a break mainly because of one major thing; I started a new job! I’m now working as a web designer for a musical instrument retail company here in town. Notice I said ‘designer’. It’s been a change from what I had been doing for my old […]

Superbowl XL

Scott and I watched approximately 5 minutes of this year’s Superbowl; the last few minutes of the third quarter and the first minute or two of the fourth. We may be the only two people who didn’t care about the game this year. I’ve still only seen the Superbowl in its entirety once; last year […]

Where I talk about football

Even though I shouldn’t care much about football, I’m pretty sad that the Colts lost to the Steelers this afternoon. I felt the same way yesterday when the Patriots lost to the Broncos last night; I’m still in shock that that Pats actually won Superbowls this decade. They were a huge, huge laughingstock when I […]

Covering The Bases

Oh holy good god. I like the Red Sox; hell, it’s practically my duty to love the Red Sox, living the first twenty years of my life in western Massachusetts. But man, just because they won a World Series doesn’t give any player the right to record his own album full of 90’s cover songs! […]

Superbowl XXXIX

I did something yesterday that I’ve never done before; watched the entire Superbowl, from start to finish, including all commercials and the halftime show. I went over to a coworker’s apartment last night and had a fantastic time playing with a Boston Terrier puppy, eating Chinese food, and drinking the girliest drink ever (Midori sours, […]

Speechless.

THE RED SOX WON THE WORLD SERIES. I have no other words right now. I never thought I’d see it in my lifetime. Wow. So, how does it feel Red Sox fans? After all those decades, after all those agonizing last minute failures, after all those “1918′’ taunts from Yankees fans, how does it feel? […]

Where were you last night?

Where were you yesterday night when the Red Sox came from behind in the best of 7 series down 3-0 to WIN the ALCS championship? I’m very happy to say that I’m actually in Massachusetts to celebrate this momentous occasion, and I’m even happier to see that the Sox creamed the Yankees in Yankee Stadium […]

Sad baseball news

I am a sad girl tonight, for the Red Sox lost to the Yankees in game 7, at the bottom of the 11th inning. What’s the chance I’ll be watching the World Series now? None. There’s always next year. And hey, they might go all the way then! (If you’re a Red Sox fan, then […]
