Dear Readers, I am safely back at the kitchen desk, happily tapping away on the laptop once again.  My trip was very enjoyable, but like always, it’s good to be home.

We started off our vacation visiting friends in Rhode Island, but other than seeing a few Lucic shirts and getting a nice tan, nothing remarkable happened there.

On Wednesday we headed to Boston.  I won’t go into major details, but suffice to say we saw everything historical in the whole city, stood over Paul Revere’s grave, ate seafood, saw all the big colleges, and went to a Red Sox game at Fenway Park.  Oh, and I saw BJ Novak walking down the street and I fell in love with Nick Green, Red Sox playah.

I’m not a huge baseball fan so I don’t really feel as though I can comment on the game.  It was definitely exciting, and I can’t say for sure but I don’t recall hearing too many baseball games ending 1-0.  Our seats were far out but we could see the diamond, and the guys sitting in front of us were heavy duty Bostonians and absolutely terrifying.

Time for pictures!!

P7090093This is the view of TD Banknorth Garden from the top of Bunkah Hill.

P7100120This is Fenway Pahk.  The Bahston Red Sox play heah.

During the seventh inning, the Red Sox faithful got a nice, loud “Yankees suck!” chant going.  It was hilarious.

P7100150This is my new boyfriend Nick Green at bat.  He struck out this time.  Sob.

P7100152These are my beloved Nick Green’s career statistics versus Kansas City.  I’m, um, not quite sure if I should be in awe of them or disgusted by them.  I understand how baseball is played, but I don’t understand the specifics and different statistics.  I’m just going to assume these are mindblowing because it makes dear Nicholas even more lovable.

Now, are you ready for the best part?  I saved the best picture for last!!

The tall ships were in Boston this week (it was a complete coincidence that they were there when we were), and guess whose ship I saw on Friday?



A whole mess of things happened in the past week and I’m not going to rehash them all, since I’m sure you heard about it already.  Just a few things:

  • The Caps got a second-line center!!  At least, they got someone to compete for the spot.  This is exciting.
  • The Sabres signed some defenseman who spent last season in Sweden.  I was less than impressed by his statistics.  I hope he’s just here to fill roster space in Portland.
  • Chicago was a complete mess and then they quickly signed all their RFAs.  There is an excellent chance they completely implode next summer when it comes time to sign all the RFAs.
  • Kovalev signed with Ottawa.  That must suck for Montreal fans.
  • Jay McKee SOLD OUT and signed with Pittsburgh.  I’m sure you’ve heard me tell this story a hundred times, but Jay McKee signed an autograph especially for me right before he left Buffalo in which he said he’s my friend.  Clearly he was lying, because no friend of mine would sign with Pittsburgh.
  • Alexander was named some sort of ambassador for the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi.  This could get awkward if Gary decides to pull the plug on NHL players at the Olympics.
  • Trendy Euro (the original one) signed with Rangers.  This is heartbreaking news.
  • Lindy Ruff has no problem standing pat.  That really upsets me.  Lindy, I don’t care if your team only finished two points out of the playoffs this year, and I don’t care if deep down, we all know a huge part of that was Ryan Miller’s injury.  A non-playoff team is a non-playoff team no matter how close you get, and I think the players we have don’t cut it.  If you don’t feel that way, it makes me sad.

And now, to spend the night playing with my new iPhone.  I don’t know if anyone’s told you, but these things are pieces of art.  I’m in love with mine.  I don’t know how I functioned before I got it.

  1. FYI – any batting average (avg) above .300 is decent. .375 is pretty good. He’s been at bat (AB) 32 times, had twelve hits (H), and 6 runners batted in (RBI). 🙂

    • Thanks!!
