Monday==>Yesterday afternoon the Bronx Bombers completed a 3-game sweep of the Braves at Turner Field in Atlanta, with a 20-6 pounding, collecting 21 hits, including HRs from Jacoby Ellsbury, Chase Headley and Stephen Drew.
Nathan Eovaldi won his 9th consecutive game to move to 14-2, although he lasted only 5 innings.
I alternated between watching the Yankee game and the Little League World Series Championship game between Japan and Pennsylvania.
In that game Japan won 18-11, pounding out 22 hits and overcoming an 8-run first inning deficit.
The attendance for the tournament was a record breaking 499,964, which I think is totally AWESOME.
We both had sirloin steaks and they were great, as usual. Then, on the way back to the apartment we made a stop at Krispy Kreme for ... tada ... some chocolate glazed donuts. A great way to end a great day.
Moving on ...
Today, being Monday, Billi Pod will be working on his usual errands and chores list and then ...
This evening at 7:10pm from that fetid cesspool known as Fenway Park it will the first game of a 3-game series against the lowly and pathetic Boston FuckSox.
On the mound for the Yankees (72-57) will be Ivan Nova (5-6) coming off his worst outing of the season against the Astros vs. the rookie Eduardo Rodriguez (7-5) for the FuckSox (60-70).
Of course, your favorite Sunshine State blogger will remain in the cool and comfortable confines of his apartment to watch the Yankees kick butt.
In closing==>this is advance notice that I will not post on this blog tomorrow because I have an appointment at 1:00pm at Winter Park Memorial Hospital for a biopsy of one of the lymph nodes in my pelvis. This is the final procedure that my oncologist needs in order to prepare a treatment program so I can begin to ...
