I'm not shining on your post. I have a death penalty case in which I must file my brief on, or within a week or two after, April 21. I am working my
@ss off. And, other than reading box scores, rooting against Bonds but for my Giants, and reading major sports stories (e.g., the mess at Duke), I am
not following MLB to date this year. And I won't be until that brief has been accepted for filing.
But once that is done--after only FOUR years of working on it--and then especially when the NBA playoffs are done, I will dig into this MLB season
like my Golden Retriever would dig into a cat. (My apologies to any cat lovers. Suffice it to say I'm not one of you. And neither is she.)
But yeah, man, I am a Boston fan and always have been. I became MUCH less of a Boston fan when they didn't keep Pedro, the modern day Lefty Grove,
but I still love them and would love to see them get 5 more rings, despite the semi-Steinbrennerian spending habits. And I congratulate you on being
one of their fans... as long as you've been one all along.
You can see what being a Giants fan entails.... It was even more painful during the Mays/McCovey/Marichal/Cepeda/Gaylord Spitball years. Five Hall
of Famers; one pennant; no rings. Broke my heart annually.
