Damn, I knew the Grade 10 Shakespeare would come in handy! Fie! Great word!
Just what Red Sox Stinkin' Nation needs: another guy to worship. Bad enough that Danny Vinik was already a charter member of the Lucky Sperm Club - daddy Jeffrey is a limited partner in the Boston Red Sox and has made a whack of scratch as an investment banker - but now the twerp can get any chick in New England thanks to his 15 minutes of fame in Game 2 of the American League Division Series.
Vinik was the guy who plucked Manny Ramirez's pop foul out of the air literally right above the glove of Angels catcher Jeff Mathis. Ramirez ended up walking and Mike Lowell drove him in with a sacrifice fly and, well, you know the rest. The kid immediately became a celebrity and will now probably star in a movie with Matt Damon or Ben Affleck or some such nonsense.
Meanwhile, what IS Steve Bartman up to these days?
Having a good Thanksgiving? Me too. Heading out tonight to the Lion's Den in The Village to see Lee 'Scratch' Perry who for those of us who are members of Dub Nation or dig reggae or The Clash or all that stuff is one of The Men if not necessarily The Man (after Mr. Marley, of course.) Peace.
