I just saw the recap of the SDP/LAD game. Please don't ask me why I'm up so early.
Freaking Nomar. The guy hits the walkoff home run in the tenth after the 4 consecutive to tie the game in the 9th (Seanez: The Gift That Keeps on Giving). And he goes nuts! Jumping up and down and screaming. Then the post-game interview, talking about how awesome the win was, how proud he was of his teammates, total team effort. Very, very effusive.
Excuse me, but is this the same guy who was the model of stoicism in Boston? Nomar NEVER displayed much emotion, regardless of his accomplishments. This did not even look like the same guy. My feelings are so hurt. I feel like as a Red Sox fan, I was deprived of Nomar the Great Teammate. Maybe he loves being a Dodger. Screw the Dodgers.
Anyhoo, I'm off for my first trip to California in a couple of days. I'll be at Petco Thursday night, Friday night, Saturday night. I might try surfing. Imagine! Me on a surfboard!
