Local Yokel

Delcarmen has a good curve ball. And good hair. I'm really pulling for him this year.

Horrible defense tonight. Just horrible. I feel like we're asleep at the wheel. Nixon just sort of messed up 2 hits. He really should have made both of those catches (bottom 7th). Our real issue this game was not capitalizing on the bases loaded situation in, what, the 2nd? Right where Papi struck out to end the inning. Okay, and Bard is sucking ass, too (as previously noted).

The new Foxwoods commercial isn't helping. The Wizard of Oz one with the Foxwoods dude caught "behind the curtain" singing the tail end of the infamously annoying jingle. Awful.

You know what the worst part, and the genius part is for those commercials? They do what advertising is supposed to do...STICK in your mind, unmercifully. Much like a 20 in Blackjack, and the dealer turns a 21. Ahhh! But I'm having fun. Just my "at the table thoughts" on more than one occasion. And it is a beautiful place, if you have money to spare. Connecticut is OK.

Dunkin Donuts' "Doing things is what I like to do" sticks in my mind, too, but I find that one amusing.

I'm not one for gambling, but I suppose I'm in the minority on that one. I don't understand why everyone loves it so much. Oooooo, let me put all my hard-earned cash down so that (1) I can watch it all go down the crapper and (2) I can give myself unbearable anxiety at the same time. Also, Peter, I have to disagree about the Foxwoods decor. I've been there twice (not my idea, either time) and I think it's cheesy and gaudy. To each her own, I guess.

Don't get me wrong...I've only been to the casinos twice in the last 2 years, and I know the odds, even at the best, are in the House's favor. But the few and far between times, at least for me, are just for the fun, not the winning money part. Although...money is nice sometimes
