Title has nothing to do with the blog content it's just one of my favorite Seinfeld quotes ever. Firstly wanted to start off the blog with a light story. I've been playing NHL online (EASHL) with the same guys since about last March. When we started off we were awful, now we're about a top 200 club and last month we were the 78th best team online. I'm sure this is all riveting for my readers so I'll move on from the nerdy content that nobody cares about. Anyways the other night we were playing and one of our teammates had just finished his semester in college and was drinking. So after he was out of beer he moved to vodka and goes "OK, if bosoxx, blotkis, or nutshot" (need to use nicknames since 90% of our team is named Mike) score a goal I'll take a shot of vodka.
This really isn't that dangerous since 2 of us play defense and score 1/20 shots and the other plays forward and scores about 1/13 shots on goal. Anyways we scored a total of 7 goals in the next 2 games and each game takes about 20 minutes. So needless to say we were having a blast putting the puck in the back of the net and the deal was cut off after the second game.
This is going to be a busy summer for me. I won't be coaching a
summer team or playing baseball for the first time in forever so I'll
have tons of time to travel. There are tentative plans on me and a few
friends going to NYC for a Braves-Mets, Redsox-Yankee game(s). I'll be
heading to Vegas again for a week, Pittsburgh for a weekend, and NYC
again late in the summer for the US Open.
As a Redsox fan going into Yankee stadium I'll keep my mouth shut for the most part, I'm actually never loud when I visit an opposing team's ballpark. I do remember Cleveland in 2003. Here's the bosxcore in case you're interested. What's funny is Cliff Lee was the Indians starter that day and I never would've guessed that. But my main point and it further illustrates the difference between my brother and I was something that happened during the game. We had really nice seats and it was the bottom of the 7th with the Redsox up 2-0 with 2 outs, bases loaded for Cleveland.
Pedro Martinez was able to get out of it by striking out A. Santos
(who?) and when that happened I stayed seated and gave a small fist
pump. My brother (who was 14 at the time) with the whole place quiet
stands up and screams "YEAH!...YEAH!" looking around for people to high
five. Nobody with the exception of my friend and I were willing to do
