no, Jonathan, "watchis" isn't a word

Two things you should already know about me:

1) I wish I had tons of money.
2) I wish the Red Sox and Fenway weren't so far away.

But now, these two things are magnified even more.

The Red Sox hold this thing called Picnic in the Park every year at Fenway. This year the picnic was yesterday. Check out some of the SWEET things they auctioned off this year:

  • A two day hunting trip with Mike Timlin and Tim Wakefield
  • A pizza party for 10 of your friends with special guest Mike Lowell.
  • Personal meeting with Daisuke Matsuzaka in addition to watching batting practice from the warning track AND great seats to the game
  • Dinner for 4 with the Schillings at THEIR HOME in the offseason
  • A game of scrabble with Jonathan Papelbon(my personal favorite)
  • A video game session before a game with Dustin Pedroia
You can check the rest of the auctioned items here. Pretty cool stuff. I heard on NESN today that they raised about $350,000 for charities.

Currently Drinking: screwdriver(I have OJ, I have vodka. Why not?)

how about a countdown til our trip since that one's done?

Are you looking for sports? Or maybe just the Red Sox? That team that is in the American League East? That same team that is the rival of the New York Yankees? Maybe you are looking for sports on the rox? Or is it Sports on the Rocks? You may be looking for Sports Drinks. Henry and Trevor read the Boston GlobeBoston Globe. They also read ESPN. If you are also looking for Mississippi State University sports, then you are in the right place too. Dirt Dawgs? Diamond Dawgs? Dawgs in general? You can Google the hell out of this site if you want.
