So would you like to read how sports can bring a couple together? Last night was a rough one for my lady and I. We weren't arguing, but we were sniping at one another. It was the kind of thing that could have definitely escalated into an all out war if drastic measures weren't taken. To make things much worse, our favorite sitcom (The Office) picked THIS week of all weeks to have a show about babies, so that just made the mood that much more tense and uncomfortable. After our show was over, I casually turned to the baseball game, and I noticed that the Red Sox were getting spanked.

So my lady and I were watching this boring Red Sox game in complete silence, and after awhile, I decided to go over to where she was sitting and patch things up and I did. This is hardly the time for us to be having any type of disagreement, so I wanted to diffuse the situation before the jihad was upon us. Well not even five minutes after we made up, the Red Sox started to come back. Initially they were down 7-0, and less than an hour later they tied and eventually won the game. By this time, my lady and I were totally into the game, and any hint of dissension had disappeared. And while I would certainly love to take all the credit here, or even give my lady some credit I simply cannot. I owe this all to baseball, specifically the Red Sox. I hope they beat Tampa, and eventually defeat Philly(sorry Lex).

And now I will do my best to disgust my 4 readers. When I had my physical two weeks back, one of my urine tests came back a bit irregular. As a result, I have to do a 24 hour creatinine clearance, which basically means I have to pee in a jar all damn day, before dropping it off to the lab for testing. So this means while I am watching my customary 3 to 4 football games on Sunday, I cannot enjoy a beer or a glass of wine. After I spend all day depositing my urine into this damn container, I have to carry this about four blocks from my house to the lab. How's that for a Monday morning commute? And who is this lucky person who gets to sift through my glorious urine looking for god knows what? Good times!

One more rant for this Friday morning. Who are these people who eat egg salad sandwiches? Who bites into one of those and says, "Damn this is the taste I've been waiting for all day?" They look nasty, they smell nasty, and I can only imagine the type of horrid side effects this sandwich induces. My former officemate used to eat these from time to time, and it simply blew my mind. I don't care what kind of condiments and sides you put on and around that sandwich, it is nasty. In fact, if I ever see one in my office fridge, I am stepping on it, then quietly throwing it away. There's no room in a civilized society for these disgusting sandwiches. Chik-fil-A is better for you anyway.

Well I'm glad someone watched the end of that game.. I turned it off at 7-0 in disgust and went out to walk the dog. Then I forgot and went to bed. I didn't even find out what happened until my wife called me on my walk to metro.

Here's a little something to get your groove on. Stanley Jordan's version of "Stairway to Heaven."
Loves me some Stanley

Being a San Diego Chargers fan there is no way I can root for any Boston team. I did pull for the Celtics because of KG and Jesus Shuttlesworth, but that is as far as I'll go.

I do like Manny and Big Papi though...

bfnh,
i love rollins and hamels, the rest i don't like. i'm a nats fan for god's sake. but if tampa bay advance, i will root for philly. that's as much of an olive branch as i can extend

egg salad ain't so bad, but only on occasion. I eat one maybe once or twice a year. It's one of those things you eat--but if you think about what you're eating, it might turn you off. And yes, definitely not pre- or post-date food. lol.

good luck with ur urine situation.

lmao @ chubbs "good luck with ur urine situation." i dont know if she intended that to be so funny but i bout died.

anyway im glad that the game helped simmer things down. It was awesome how boston was able to rally so late in the game.

but yeah um i thought we got this all straightened out. You're suffosed to be rooting for the phils! no ifs ands or buts.
