"...the best laid plans of mice and men often go astray..." ~Robert Burns
I'm not going to apologize or give you a laundry list of excuses why I haven't posted. I haven't, but I am now aren't you so happy?
My off-season has been semi-eventful. I started a new position at work, a new personal blog, had the holidays and all of that jazz. I even got to meet some Sox super-stars, past and present.
In November, thanks to our awesome friends from The Red Seat, we attended the 2008 Red Sox Hall of Fame Induction Gala. Mike Greenwell, Mo Vaughn and Bill "the Spaceman" Lee (among others) were this years inductees.
My husband and Louis Tiant
So we maybe, kinda, sorta stalked Tiant on his way to the bathroom. The thing is my husband is a huge cigar fan and we gave away Tiant's "El Tiante Cigars" at our wedding. When Tiant heard the boxes were for our wedding he actually signed one of the boxes for us, which was really cool.
Then right before Christmas the husband and I were shopping at the Cambridgeside Galleria and met Wes Welker (ufortunately we have no pictures, but we did get a great signed picture!)
Today we went to World of Wheels (for him, not me) and
So this guy who brought Masterson up to the signing table had on a Yankees jacket and people were "booing" and yelling at him so he said "ok, ok, I'll take it off" and he had another Yankees shirt on under that. And again he said "ok, ok just kidding I'll take it off!" and off comes that shirt to display this A-Rod t-shirt. *sigh* At least Justin got a good laugh at it.
Another super-nice guy. We talked a bit about the Cape League and he said "man, that was a LONG time ago!" and I kind of laughed to myself thinking, "yeah, all the way back to 2005!" This kid has a great arm and a better smile.
So there it is, the celebrity sightings this off-season. Have you seen anyone good? My next stop is Ft. Myers in March. I can't wait.
