Home opener

This is awesome. Three years too late (I still get pissed off when I think about that "We forgive you" banner), but a great gesture. I'm surprised (and happy) he agreed to do this.

Game at 2:05pm. Anyone around for a game thread?

update: today's Boston Herald: "All is Forgiven". God I hate the media.


  1. apparently not.

    you = poop.

  2. That's it - I give up. Maybe I'll go to the game tonight, and then fly to Norway and take a boat to Iceland. That'll show you all.

    I'll be back online on April 28th.

  3. Sorry, busy at work. But back to Buckner for a second. I know it is trendy to blame the media, but Buckner actually did blame the media. And I tend to agree with him.

    A lot of poeple forget is he came back and played for the Sox in 1990. And got huge ovations. He even had a quirky inside the park home run.

    Really, the media jumped on him forever. So the forgiveness is really Buckner forgiving them.

  4. and back to the devil rays trivia - no idean about the first place date (dino might be being optimistic), but I do remember that in 2004 they just missed be .500 at the ASB and had been only days before. Partially reinforced by me meeting a guy from Tampa while on my honeymoon over the ASB.
