Just checking in.
But my guess is that the "cooler" has such a slick nickname because he's so cool and calm when his team doesn't need any production from him. To paint the picture: it's the top of the ninth, 0 outs, 3-1 count. The yankees are up 7-0 over the Devil Rays. He's sure to hit the 3-run homer then. If they're in Yankee stadium in October and the score is within 2 runs either way, he's surely going to strike out at every chance. At that point they probably call him the "cold". Who knows. But when he pouts in the dugout with Jeter, and they are on TV 57 times looking like their puppy just got run over (this never gets old) - those lips do look even more purple. good call.

Must be a combination of the above.

The Cooler

Remind me again why they call A-Rod "the cooler"? Is it because he is such a cool dude? Is it because he always looks cold with his big purple lips? Or is it because he likes to drink a lot of beer at the beach and thus always has a cooler with him. Inquiring minds want to know...

Watching the Tigers beating the Yankees

Well. The brutal disaster that was the end of the Sox season had left me too depressed to post for awhile. However, there was at least one positive that came out of the last couple weeks. That being Papi breaking the Sox season record for home runs.

I did make it to a few games at the end of the season, the highlight: bringing Max, at 5 months old, to his first game and having him in the park when Papi hit #50 to tie Jimmy Foxx's record.

Didn't suck being there the next night to see 51 and 52 too, either. Other than the Ortiz story, the end 'o the season was quite the kick in the johnson, with the capper of finishing 3rd to Toronto.

Anyway...that's over. And the Pats looked like the Pats again last Sunday. And Detroit split in the bronx and is now up 3-0 in the 6th in Comerica.

Go Tigers.

Da Pats

Damn the Pats looked good yesterday. I love the fact that other then in the Denver game, they are running roughshod over other teams. Any questions about whether or not this team misses Deion Branch? I didn't think so.
