Baseball: Looking Back


October 10th, 2017 Posted 8:42 am

Spence: Just looking back at your World Series picks, made here April 10.

Pete: Why?

Spence: Doesn’t there have to be accountability in life? Or at least continuity?

Pete: Kafka didn’t think so.

Spence: But could be hit the curve ball? Here were your picks: Red Sox versus Cubs. So you’re half alive.

Pete: Beats Kafka.


Happy Patriots’ Day, Everybody!

“But most of our readers are saying, ‘Huh?'” says Spence.

“They don’t have Patriots’ Day?” says Admin.

“No – except for in Maine, where it’s Patriot’s Day. But the point is it’s in memory of the start of the Revolutionary War at the battles of Lexington Green and the Old North Bridge in Concord. That’s what Emerson was referencing here:

By the rude bridge that arched the flood,
Their flag to April’s breeze unfurled,
Here once the embattled farmers stood,
And fired the shot heard round the world.”

“Embattled farmers,” Admin says. “That’s good stuff.”

“And now we have embattled marathoners every Patriots’ Day, as well as a morning game at Fenway Park featuring embattled Red Sox. It’s a nice partial sort of holiday.”

“More holidays!”

Probably the best-tasting ball there is.


World Series picks: Cubs and Red Sox.


Nightmare in the Fens


October 24th, 2013 Posted 8:09 am

“I had a terrible nightmare last night,” Spence says. “Want to hear it?”

“Describe a dream, lose a reader,” says Admin. “But go ahead.”

“Okay. I dreamed Fenway Park was getting bulldozed. The infield looked like an open-pit mine.”

“Did they find the rest of Ted Williams?”

“That’s not funny. What do you think the dream means?”

“Bet the ranch on the Red Sox. Dreams run counterclockwise.”
