Dirty Water: Another Jew with a Blog
(Baked Beans has changed its name to Dirty Water. I hate Baked Beans but I "love that Dirty Water")
As Senator George Mitchell's investigation is winding down, former Red Sox outfielder Gabe Kapler is laying low. First as a manager for the Red Sox Single A affiliate in Greenville, SC, now as a blogger tracking the Red Sox 2007 postseason. Kapler plans to make a comeback to attempt to make the Sox roster once he squashes this Jacoby Ellsbury girlie-man like a bug.
You can check out his musings at Kapler's Corner
While I'm nobody to critique anybody else's blog (at least his is regularly updated), here is Gabe's words of wisdom:
Dateline:October 6, 2007
Subject: It's over!
Dateline:October 7, 2007
Subject: Let's start now!
Just a personal opinion, but I bet the Red Sox want to play ASAP. After a convincing sweep of the Angels in the ALDS, the last thing a team wants is to let that energy die down.
If the Yanks/Indians series drags on, The Sox don't have as much opportunity to utilize the positive emotion. As a hitter specifically, I want to be back in the batters box after one off day. Hitting is so much about timing and the bat can feel like a foreign object initially after a significant layoff.
For now let's enjoy an incredible ALDS victory and get ready for the ALCS!!
He does know the ALCS would start Friday regardless right?
Where Have I Heard This Before?
You may have seen and been impressed by these new Cadillac CTS ads featuring Kate Walsh and New Zealand actor Martin Henderson.
You may have heard the riff after each actor asks “Does it return the favor?” and think “Where have I heard this before?”
Well it comes from one of my favorite 90’s rock songs “Stars” by one-hit wonders Hum released in 1995. The riff is about a minute in. Song is everything that made 90’s rock what it was, angst and sadness expressed at the same time but with an energy that made it enjoyable to listen to.
Do you think the members of Hum ever thought they’d make money off this song 12 years after they released it then went to music Bolivian?
