It happens every year. You wait all winter, trudging through the snow, sliding around on icy roads and cursing the constant dark. You promise yourself this will be the year that you really get your money’s worth out of New England summer. Spring rolls in, baseball starts, and the next thing you know it’s hurricane season, the leaves are turning, and another summer has passed you by. To remedy that, at least for two-and-a-half minutes, I give you Mungo Jerry.

Very nice, eh?

Now, Red will be back from his “business trip” soon and I feel like I haven’t had a chance to flex my man-in-charge muscle during the posts this week. And being a man of the people, I won’t do it now. Instead, I give the ladies what they want. And what they all seem to want is Jason Varitek.


Tonight, it’s back to Red Sox baseball. The return of Josh Beckett combined with the Rays facing Halladay? Smells like two-and-a-half to me.
