Red Sox Win game 4!

At 1:30 this morning the Red Sox finally woke up! David Ortiz hit a homerun in the 12th inning which resulted in a win again the New York Yankees in Game 4.

Tonight the baseball game starts at 5pm. I have a feeling that productivity around New England will drop around 3:30 this afternoon. In fact, since the game ended so late, I bet a lot of people decided to "work from home" today.

Last night I watched the game from home and used the WEEI as the audio. I noticed that the game on TV was about 1.5 seconds behind the radio feed. It made it weird to watch the game.

I am not sure if the delay was from FOX or from TIVO caused the delay. I'll test it later tonight since the CC Radio I have also picks up channel 7, and I can see if the delay also happens during a news broadcast.

Red Sox Loose

Well, the Red Sox lost game one. What looked like a blowout by the Yankees turned into a tight game in the later innings.

Today the big debate is what will New Englanders will be watching on TV tonight. Game 2 of the ALCS and the third presidential debate are on tonight.

I suspect that the overnight ratings will show that most New Englanders care more for the results of the baseball game than who wins the final debate.

Red Sox vs Yankees

Tonight is game 1 of the ALCS series against the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees.

All the local networks started with this mornings newscast about the big game tonight. Even the local papers have special covers and coverage of the series.

Some people think that the Red Sox will sweep the Yankees. I predict that the Red Sox will probably take game 1, loose game 2, but will win the series with Padro in game 6.

This is a rematch from last year, watch for the sparks to fly...

Hollywood couldn't come up with a better script...

2004 Baseball Season

The Red Sox Magic number is 161.

This morning the New York Yankees lost their first game of the 2004 season to the Tampa Bay Devil Ray in Japan.

No riots in the Back Bay in Boston, not one car was flipped over, not one beer bottle was thrown into Mass Ave.

Its going to be a long season, which brings up an interesting questions: Who will have more press coverage over the next 7 months, the Red Sox and Yankees or George W. Bush and John Kerry?

With gas prices in Boston at $2 and the cheapest ticket at Fenway cost $20, we are better off walking to the nearest pub and watching the game with a cold beer.

Janet Jackson

Janet Jackson appeared tonight on Larry King Live, six days after her Superbowl half time appearance. The interview focus more on her life and the new album than the Superbowl controversy. Oddly enough she has a new album coming out this week.

The Recording Academy has installed a 5 minute delay on the Grammy Awards to prevent another media disaster.

Superbowl XXXVIII

Congratulations to the New England Patriots for winning Superbowl XXXVIII!

Fans around Boston University and Northeastern last night were celebrating the traditional LA way by rioting in the streets and flipping over cars.

Local radio stations were wondering what would happen to Boston when the Red Sox would win a World Series.

Bill Belichick did a great job in executing a great Superbowl game plan!

So right now:

  • New England Patriots are Champions
  • Massachusetts Senator John Kerry is leading the Democrats
  • Boston Bruins are the hottest team in the east.
  • Boston Red Sox are building the best team in Baseball.
Not a bad time to be in Massachusetts!

Patriots Get Ready

The New England Patriots are currently 7 points favorites over the Carolina Panthers in Houston.

Another act is poised to join Janet Jackson, Sean "P. Diddy" Combs, Kid Rock and Nelly during the half time show. Who that is will remain a mystery until the program, producers said Thursday. The New England Patriots and the Carolina Panthers play Sunday in Reliant Stadium.

Patriots Win

The New England Patriots have won eight straight, the longest streak in the NFL, and are 10-2 for the first time in franchise history. Yesterday win over the Colts was pure drama with the defense keeping the Colts out of the end zone from the 1 yard line 3 times!

Also this weekend was the announcement of a Curt Schilling to the Red Sox lineup. The star right-hander and five-time All-Star waived his no-trade clause, setting in motion a deal that was reached in principle by the Red Sox and Diamondbacks on Monday, acquiring Schilling, the Red Sox parted with left-hander Casey Fossum, right-hander Brandon Lyon, pitching prospect Jorge De La Rosa and a minor leaguer to be named.

Red Sox Win!

Well the Boston Red Sox live to play baseball one more day. Last night ALCS game was very exiting with moments of pure drama. This afternoon's game is sure to be as exciting as well.

There were many loyal Red Sox fans that slept on the cold pavement on Yawkey Way waiting for the Red Sox to release some no show tickets to the game, only to be disappointed that there were no tickets available.

This afternoons game will be played at the same time as the football moves into Week 5 and the New England Patriots battle against the Tennessee?Titans in Foxborough. I suspect that the Red Sox game will get higher TV ratings.
