Ditto. Went to a Philadelphia Union game last night and I thought my son was going to actually just cease to be, melting down in front of the seat in a puddle on the concrete. He was miserable. I can't be ruining baseball like that. Gonna be in the pool today instead and will put the game on the radio.Have tickets but bailing,
Never heard of a TV Tester. Is that if your favorite golfer doesn’t make the putt, you kick the TV in?When I was a kid, there was lots more golf on TV. (that wasn't a good thing.) My friends and I all used the phrase 'TV tester', which as most of you probably know, is a 5' putt in front of a national audience. Today's game is a TV tester for the Sox. Tampa may be fading, but we're 3 games behind Cleveland and Oakland, and we haven't shown much. If Cashner is shit again, I'm going to have to start paying less attention, because their mediocrity is breaking my heart.
That's what I feel like now, but what we meant then was an athletic thing that you 'should' be able to do easily, but had the added pressure of public/media scrutiny. Front end of a one-and-one free throw, easy ground ball one step to your glove side, receiving a weaker 2nd serve in tennis. My friends and I used it a lot, although the only media scrutiny at our events was how smart-ass we were with each other.Never heard of a TV Tester.

Grew up in ET for 25 years and have now lived in Pennsylvania for 13. Bodies change. Anything above 80 now is hot, back in Texas that’d be a cool summer day.Living in TX definitely has changed what "hot" is. Usually from late May until early October it's basically 95-100 every day. And, no.... it's not "dry heat". Austin is pretty fucking humid and we've had a lot of rain this year so it's extra miserable. When I hear/read people from back in New England and New York complaining about the heat, I gotta laugh. That said... I never thought that a a winter day that hits 35 would feel absolutely frigid. We adapt. 105 is the new 90. 35 is the new 20
Yeah, .941 career OPS vs. Red Sox, including career 1.041 career OPS at Fenway. Jeesh.Just signing on... without looking at any stats, I have to believe Trey Mancini has owned the Sox as much as anybody.
Okay, having put that out there, let me find some stats...
