Due to a 95% chance of rain, today’s opener between the Red Sox and the Rays has been postponed until tomorrow. So I’ll be stuck at work wearing my entirely office-inapporpriate Green Monster-green “Entering Fenway” t-shirt (“Love That Dirty Water” on the back) and my “Captain Fenway” Varitek hoodie. And of course, now I’ll have to wear the same get-up tomorrow. But hey, I’ll get to celebrate Opening Day twice! And the delay will give me an extra day to find my entire collection of Red Sox caps. (I remember putting them away somewhere “safe” in November. Apparently, that location was a little too safe.)

How are you celebrating this unofficial, unparalleled holiday? Are you going to catch the game? Let us know in the comments, and if you’ve uploaded pictures, leave us a link!

    Well the ChiSox got snowed out, so I’ll be being extremely productive tomorrow at 1 p.m.

  2. Drinking too much Gatorade, jumping up and down, micromanaging my fantasy teams. Fantasy teams mean I’ve started rooting for guys who I normally wouldn’t care about – like Roy Oswalt.

    I, newly unemployed, spent the day with some Sam Adams at my also newly unemployed friend’s apartment watching the Sox game on her sweet HDTV. she made the best chili ever while I made leering comments and licking noises at Jacoby ever time he came up to bat.

  4. Sarah Green says:

    Um, Lyndsay, I think you mean “every time Jacoby came up to strike out, ground out, or pop out.” If only he could hit as good as he looks.

    Sorry to hear about your job sitch. :(

  5. thanks Sarah. I am luckily not alone, as most of my friends are also in the same boat. so…Umpbump hiring?? ;-)

    yeah I was so glad to see my speedy little Navajo actually got some real hits today that weren’t cheap bunts down the 3rd base line. I really want the boy to figure out the high inside pitch, ya know?? I know he can beat out a bunt, but it’s such a last-ditch effort to get on base!

    also…Kottaras. eh, EH??? from the ladies of RS Nation…Thank you Theo. :-)
