Plenty to like about this game -- Curt Schilling (7-5-2-1-5), David Ortiz (single, double, a long home run off the top of the right field foul pole, 2 runs, 3 RBI, ho-hum), Crisp (2 runs, excellent speed on the bases, and several nice catches in center), even Mike Lowell (home run). ... Good for Keith Foulke to pitch the 9th, up by five runs. He was hit pretty hard, but nailed it down.
2:08 PM -- Coco Crisp looks at ball one from Kevin Millwood ... here we go!
8:00 AM -- I'm up early, after working a 14-hour Sunday (11 AM to 1 AM -- after losing an hour's sleep the night before -- ugh.), driving to Buffalo to pick up Laura from the airport (she was in New York for her sister's 50th birthday celebration). There should be plenty of time to get back for the 2:00 start. Not sure if I'll be able to find a Sam Adams at my local LCBO, but I'll have something cold and alcoholic within reach, damn it, because it's a national holiday. I'll be wearing a Godpapi t-shirt, posting in the SoSH Game Thread via laptop and filling in the blank boxes in Scorecard #1. ... What do you do for Opening Day?
