Admit it, part of the reason you hate winter is because he leaves you to face it alone. Off he goes, in his lear jet or hovercraft with a dozen robot women to satisfy his every urge, and you’re left there with just the memory of his voice, the recollection of some bit of witty banter rattling inside your brain, crossing off the days until he comes back.
We understand, because we’re just the same. So we were thrilled to hear the Remy name back in the news. Yesterday, at the White House, the Dawg was sworn in as Red Sox Nation Prez.
Along with vice president of Red Sox Nation Rob Crawford, Remy was issued an oath of office by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer.
The oath contained the following: “I, Jerry Remy, do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the office of President of Red Sox Nation. I pledge to be true to the game, true to our fans and, to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and promote all that is great about the beloved sport of baseball and the Boston Red Sox.”
My only complaint: why does no video of this historic event exist? Where were the brains behind TheRemyReport.com when this “official” ceremony was taking place. Not even a photo of Jerry with one hand on a bible and the other keeping some D.C. hookers at bay? Inexcusible. And worse, it forces me to question whether this event actually took place, like the moon landing or Marisa Tomei winning an Oscar.
