Baseball and dogs!
Well, the long, long, long, long, long, long wait was actually worthwile. After a four hour and 47 minute delay, Jon Lester finally got to throw his first Major League pitch. And just like Papelbon, he struck out the first batter he faced in his career.
Now, Game 2 — originally scheduled for 8 p.m. tonight, as I’m sure most of you have heard, will be played at noon tomorrow. The regularly scheduled game for tomorrow has been switched from 2 to 5 p.m. So fans who had tix for tonight’s game, those tix will be good at noon tomorrow, and fans who had tix for the regular game on sunday can use them at 5.
Again, those fans who sat here for that four hour and 47 minute delay deserve the biggest props humanly imaginable. That is great. And how about this for an added twist? In about the second inning, the Red Sox announce that they were giving out free hot dogs all night, as long as supplies last!
