Thank You and You and You and You

First of all, thanks to all the folks who made it out to my humble little show this weekend. I sold 2 pieces and was commissioned to paint 2 more for a lovely young couple in the 'ville. It was a lot of work, but it really paid off, as the event was a success. It was also a little "This Is Your Life." as people I hadn't seen in ages recognized me on the map and stopped by for a visit. Man, I love Somerville.

I missed yesterday's matchup, but caught the post game which served as the proverbial cherry on top to a perfect weekend. I love sweeps. DiNardo really needed that victory - his first in the majors! And Tek obtaining his second career grand slam was simply marvelous (one lucky gal got to see this in person). I feel pretty confident going into this upcoming series with the Yankees and I am truly excited to watch Beckett pitch against Johnson, who boasts a 5-0 record against the Red Sox. The Yankees have also enjoyed a few recent wins (alright, alright, 5 in a row) and both teams will have had a day's rest going into Tuesday's game, so let's just say it's gonna be interesting.

Side note: I do respect Joe Torre a great deal, and the "general baseball fan" in me congratulates him on his 1000th career win. Personally, I think he deserves higher honors for tolerating Steinbrenner all this time, but that's just me.

Enjoy the night off, everyone!

P.S. Every mid-pitch action shot cracks me up. Like this one of DiNardo:



I'm going to create a silly post about these sometime soon.

Torre is the best there is. Period.

Considering all the managers that have come and gone in the Bronx (rivalled only by Boston, I think), Torre deserves congratulations. I do think he should have kept his mouth shut about Damon's reception, though.

for tolerating steinbrenner, or for not getting fired on a whim by steinbrenner...which is more impressive?

That looks so much like Beckett, I simply cannot believe it's Lenny.

and yes, the game was marvelous.

Lenny in that pic looks as if he was about to hurl...he didn't, though. Take care and enjoy the festivities in NYC tonight.
