I watch quite a bit of Baseball this weekend. I didn’t expect much, boy was i surprised! First on Friday night they didn’t postpone the game until after 10:00. It was pouring, everyone knew the game was not going to be played, but they just wouldn’t pospone, so we waited.
Saturdays game was a little disapointing, but what the heck we knew we were out of the running, and it was Mike Lowell’s farewell game. Just writing that makes me cry. I can’t believe he won’t be with the team come Spring Training time.
Then came the make up game. No starters except for J.D. as DH. What the hell were we trying to lose? Surprise, we won it in the 10th!!
Yesterdays game made me cry again, possibly the last time Jason Varitek will step up to the plate as a Red Sox. He will always be the team Captain to me.
So what if the Yankees won the Wild Card, we knew we couldn’t.
But we won the game, the weekend, and we looked terrific!!
So go play your Playoff Games and we will sit back and wait for Spring. But we have to Thank the Sox for a Great Ending to a crazy season.
My daughter went to a good bye time for Mike Lowell at Jerry Remys new restaurant, and won a Wally Doll, autographed by Jerry. I have an original Wally, but this one is so much nicer, it has Jerry’s name on it’s butt, and I love Jerry. ( by the way the Wally doll is now mine, because I lent her my Mike Lowell shirt)
I will probably do a blog saying Good Bye to Mike Lowell, but right now I just can’t.

Wally and the Truck with all the red sox equipment, heading for Florida and Spring Training!
As Julia so generously pointed out to me, my numbers were off yesterday. My bad. I can’t imagine why with all that has been going on in my life. But thankfully I have Julia around to let me know on my blog, not email, that I made a mistake. I really will have to try to research a little better before writing anything. Thanks for being there for me Julia, everyone needs someone like you around to point out their mistakes!
Now I think I got this right, Tito took out Wakefield, the game was tied when Scott Podsednik hit a home run off of Ramirez then came the ninth and Big Papi hit a homerun and we won the game!!
It was really good to see Wakefield back on the mound last night.
Jerry in the Booth, Wally in the Chair and Wake on the Mound. Baseball at it’s best!
