the road to 51 ends hereThat game last night? That was canonically the best sporting event I've ever attended in my life. Oh, Papi. At least there's something left to cheer for this season. And the PM's future husband Lowell with his homerun, too. Brilliant. Exactly what I needed to end this season on an emotional up note.
[Note: So, I was excited and amused about this next link, but I post it with the caveat that I do not want to get into any sort of debate about the ethics or morality of hunting, mmmkay? We all have an opinion and whoo! for us.]
Papelbon's going moose hunting in ye olde homeland (Maine, to the rest of you people). For charity, even.
"I'm going to try to take mine with a bow. I imagine we might take [a bow and a rifle], because with a bow, you have to get within 50 yards of them," Papelbon said.
I was just talking about this with kelly, though in re: Timlin-- is bow hunting really the best off-season activity for someone who does horrible things to their shoulder muscles as a career? Just, you know, a thought.
