Well, Billi Pod is still glowing from the outcome of last night’s YANKEE/FUCKSOX game at that slimy cesspool known as Fenway Park. Yes, the Yankees won 5-2 behind a journeyman performance from our ace CC Sabathia. His record is now 18-7.
CC kept getting into and then out of trouble through the 6 innings he pitched, but he held The Sucks to 2 runs. The bullpen did the rest, shutting down The Sucks for the final 3 innings.
There was a near bench-clearing brawl when John Lackey intentionally hit our catcher, Francisco Cervelli, in retaliation for what Lackey perceived as “improper celebration” after Cervelli had hit a home run earlier in the game.
Yeah, really classy and professional conduct from The Sucks.
Tonight at 7:05pm is the second game of the 3-game series and Phil Hughes will be on the mound for The Bronx Bombers. On the mound for The FuckSox will be our nemesis, Josh Beckett, who has owned us this season.
Of course Billi Pod will be glued to the tube.
Today’s entertainment event is ...
2:00==>CATCH ME IF YOU CAN, the musical about the exploits of Frank Abagnale, Jr. (Broadway - complimentary ticket).
I first saw this show in early previews and liked it a lot. Saw it a second time shortly after it opened to very mixed reviews. It is closing this Sunday, so when it showed up on one of my ticket services I couldn’t pass it up.
I think that a lot of my theater-buddies will be there too.
In closing I want to respond to several emails and postings about my perceived vitriol and negative feelings directed at Boston ...
Folks, you got it wrong==>Billi Pod DOES NOT hate the City of Boston. Boston is, in fact, one of his favorite American cities. No, he hates The Boston Red Sox, not Beantown.
What are my top-5 American cities, you are no doubt breathlessly asking? Well ... here they are:
1. New York City (of course)
2. San Francisco
4. New Orleans
GO YANKEES AND GO GATORS!!
