t-shirts with witty sayings about topical things happening in townWere Papelbon to change his number, Saklad said, "That would be a worst-case scenario. It's one thing for a lesser-known player to change his number, but if Papelbon were to do it, it would be upsetting to a lot of fans."
I was just talking about t-shirts yesterday and now the Boston Herald is telling me that Papelbon's is "flying off the shelves." Read the article here, as well as the related one about the rookie's "bad" numbers here. And be sure to "maximize" the photo because it's a delightful shot of the baby bullpen in all their glory.
I myself have TWO Papelbon t-shirts, though since kelly found me a red one for my birthday, the never-worn navy blue one is being shipped off to my brother.
When I startd this post (at 10:30 a.m.), I had more to say. I guess, anyway, because I didn't post it. But now that I've spent all day running errands for a very demanding client and then complaining about them whenever they were in a different room (both very exhausting tasks), all I can do is fall back to that special place where I imagine Timlin staring at said clients like he might kick them for fun and telling them, "Yeah, I slept with your wife. [nonchalant shrug] She wasn't that good. [beat, eyes narrow] But I might do it again anyway," just to see them cry. It's probably psychologically unsound, but today it's what gets me through.
