Hope Remains


Overheard on the Yankee Death Star after last night's game:

Aide: We've analyzed their attack and there is a danger. Should I have your ship standing by?

Gov. Tarkin: Evacuate? In our moment of triumph? I think you overestimate their chances.

The Death Star still remains in orbit above Boston, but Red Squadron is in the trench and heading for the exhaust shaft. This is gonna be real close.

Dropping the Star Wars thing for a moment (and thank you for indulging me in this, btw), I don't know how much more of these kinds of game I can take. I almost hope tonight's game gets rained out just so the players (and I) can get some rest. If not, both teams are gonna have to start recruiting beer vendors to their bullpens.

Yankee Death Star 3, Fenway Rebel Alliance 2

UPDATE: Grand Moff Michele is doing the rain dance, too.

The Yankee fan in me doesn't want a rainout. The human being that occupies the rest of my brain is screaming for rest.

I hear you on the rest thing. Those players all have my tired sympathies.

Go Sox!
