Game one showed that this team can hit.
Unfortunately, we pitched like shit.
But my undying faith won’t yield
And when we take the soggy field,
I’ll watch as Chris Sale takes the ball
(And hope he doesn’t slip and fall.)
The Sox will prove they are not meek
And start their first great winning streak.
Remember that a rainy day
Just means “water” is on the way.

An ode to Fenway Park using each of the 100 Scrabble tiles exactly once:

If I go up
to Fenway Park,
I'm relaxed / riveted
in equal measure,
joining a tribe
to cheer, to bond
as hazel clouds
give way to sun.

(Blanks: E, U)

I couldn’t participate in the opener but I’ll be here today and many other days and evenings for the next 6 months. Win this fucking thing.

Youk just said of the Fenway crowd energy that Chris Sale needs to “utilize that to his advantage.”

We need to have a national conversation about the word “utilize.”

Sports guys are not exactly familiar with the fine points of the English language. OB drives me nuts.

I'm embarrassed to admit that I forgot about opening day due to getting really immersed Civ 6 session. I think I might have uninstall that game from my comp to stop that kind of thing from happening.
