Red Eye Sox Nation

I'm not complaining, mind you... but between the recent clock change and the whole 'Red Sox fan living abroad' thing, my sleep cycle is seriously out of wack. 

I need a nap.

"Tonight, tonight, won't be just any night"...Stephen Sondheim must have known the 2008 ALCS would come down to a deciding game. And here I am, a die-hard Phillies fan, sitting back and waiting..better take a nap today, Dave, it's going to be a bumpy night.

Go Rays. ;) That just doesn't sound right to me, but...

Go Red Sox!
I hope your sleep deprivation pays off!!

Serves you right being tired, watching that team....

Dang. I want to be in this with you. Sports solidarity. You know. But I have traditionally loved the unlovable. When I lived in Seattle, we used to say, "If G-d came down to play for the Mariners, they'd trade Him." Then the Japanese bought them; and they started to win. But I'd moved on.

I had brief glory days with the KC Royals. George Brett was unbelievable; and who could beat Dan Quisenberry's "sidearm submarine"? But even that winning feeling was brief.

Moved on to Baltimore, during the "Wire to Wire" winning era. And now? Baltimore is tanking.

I sleep very well these days, Trep.

Enjoy your sleepless nights, pal. They are the stuff that dreams are made of...

Sorry, David - I've got no horse in this particular race. I'm (yes, I'm admitting this in public) a Mets fan.

Go on, say it. You know you want to. :-)

I guess your sleepless nights issue is gone. unless you are planning to become a Tampa Bay fan.

you and yakov (age 14) can now go to bed. sorry that your sleepless nights are over - it was exciting while it lasted.

on a totaly different topic, your blog is once more the main quote on The Jewish Chronicle's pages, in their weekly coloumn The Internet, they repeat much of your entry about Ariela who crochets a kippa, including one comment from said blog staring with "Not to worry you, but we girls often give our brothers our first attempt..."

Having kept a careful eye on your blog for over 2 years and weekly getting the JC, I start to believe that yours is the most quoted blog. Does Ariela know about all this?

I was a Red Sox fan at age three, when we moved to Boston. Took me years to lose that accent, too....but then we moved to California where somehow the Giants never impressed me. There were the Dodgers, but they were from LA and people from N.Cal do NOT root for anyone or anything from LA. Ever. Only forest fires and earthquakes produce solidarity--everything else is out and out competition. So I've remained a Red Sox fan to this day.

A bunch of friends from LA went to Cal for school. Every now and then they'd take in a game at Candlestick and risk their health by wearing our beloved Dodger blue.

I feel your pain, Trep!

Posted by: Juggling Frogs | Oct 20, 2008 9:17:53 PM

Makolet moment: It is very painful watching a group of grown men cry. Go, team.

Posted by: rutimizrachi | Oct 21, 2008 8:25:36 PM

Trep: no pain here. This Series will be one for the ages -- Phils vs. Rays.

It helps if you know my name, and the name of my younger brother. ;o/
