Hey, remember that Red Sox story I was telling you? Of course you don’t … but I’m going to finish telling it anyway.

[Click here for Part 1] By now, you’ve almost surely forgotten what we were talking about … so for those of you who don’t feel like going back and re-reading the first part of this story, let me refresh your memory: I booked for my family a vacation that partly revolved around seeing the Red Sox at their spring-training facility … and, being the well-thought-out genius that I am, I failed to first confirm that, during the time of our vacation, we’d actually be allowed inside the Red Sox spring-training facility. This proved to be a major oversight on my… [read the rest]

Who’s ready for another fun tale about me fucking up a long-awaited vacation?

Remember that time I almost ruined a dream vacation to Mexico? No? Well, I sure do … and I was reminded of that colossal fuck up last month, just days before my family and I were due to take our second trip down to Sanibel Island. As some of you may recall, we traveled to Southwest Florida for the first time a couple of years ago … a vacation that included our first-ever visit to the Red Sox’s spring-training facility, which was all kinds of awesome.

Dear Boston-area Shitheads and the People Who Love Them, As you well know, Boston experienced a terrible tragedy earlier this year. The Red Sox quickly became one of the things around which people rallied in the wake of that tragedy, and the improbable run that the team has had since that time — not to mention the tremendous amount of work that the Red Sox organization and individual players have done to honor the people most affected — has, for many, served as a symbol of the city’s resilience and recovery.

And then I got into a political argument with Boston Red Sox pitching legend Curt Schilling

Curt Schilling is a baseball god to me. What he did with my beloved Red Sox in 2004 — the bloody sock, Game 6 of the ALCS, the team’s first World Series victory in 86 years (a victory for which Curt was largely responsible) — earned a revered and hallowed place in my heart for Curt Schilling The Pitcher. Curt Schilling The Political Commentator? Not so much. Which brings us to the following tête-à-tête (tweet-a-tweet?). nytimes.com/2013/02/05/us/… Men & women fought and died for this right, gave their lives for this right, and we’re going to complain about a wait? —… [read the rest]
