Fausto Carmona, 19-8, 3.06


I did post this story on the message board, but I can't resist referring to it again. This proves beyond a doubt that Red Sox Nation is the most superstitious fan base out there for any major sport.

The rumble enveloped Littleton, Mass., and dozens of nearby towns at 1:23 a.m. yesterday, a grating noise that witnesses said sounded like a truck crashing, a lumbering freight train, or a 747 buzzing 100 feet from the ground. As windows rattled and floors vibrated, people sat up in bed, dogs barked, and weary baseball fans awoke on couches with their televisions still flickering, wondering if the Red Sox had won.

"I thought, oh, my God, the furnace blew," said Ann Carey, 64, who was jarred from sleep in her Westford bedroom.

It was a 2.5-magnitude earthquake with an epicenter near Littleton Common. No injuries or damage were reported, but it rattled homes from Milton to Hollis, N.H. Another minor temblor shook the Merrimack Valley earlier this month.

The emergency switchboard lit up at the Littleton police station with reports of explosions and accidents on Interstate 495. "We had two people working the phones, and we still couldn't keep up," said Sergeant Robert Romilly.

A 0.9-magnitude aftershock followed at 6:04 a.m., said John Ebel, director of Boston College's Weston Observatory. There have been a dozen minor tremors near Littleton since the 1970s, with the last coming on Oct. 8, 2004, the day Red Sox slugger David Ortiz hit a 10th-inning home run during a championship playoff run. Is there a correlation?
[See? I told you so! - TriSec]

"One can only hope," Ebel said.


I'll be ready with my 'miracle radio'....how about you?

Fristy pants.



It's the third period and still no score in the Rangers-Bruins game.

Comment by livingonli on 10/20/2007 23:58:41

Where's the Atlanta contingent tonight?

As I discovered, the speed on my laptop is not as fast as my desktop.

The Atlanta contingent checking in... :peace:



We just got home - probably going to watch The Wire instead of game :shrug:

Comment by Raine on 10/21/2007 01:20:16

Comment by livingonli on 10/21/2007 01:21:55
Ah, the joys of channel flipping (not to mention picture-in-picture). ;)

Comment by Raine on 10/21/2007 01:33:06

Comment by Raine on 10/21/2007 01:33:58
I wish we had picture in picture!

Heading upstairs to listen to the 'ol miracle radio.



Besides, we have to do everything exactly the same way that we did for game 5, otherwise it won't come out the same way.



(reaches down and ties 27 knots in shoelace)



G'nite...I may not be on until late tomorrow.

Hope your game custom works, Tri. :peace:

Comment by Raine on 10/21/2007 01:52:55

I am getting ready to go couchward. I may or may not be back... this was a long day, and the sun wore me out!

What did you guys do today?

Comment by livingonli on 10/21/2007 15:57:57
Anyone watching football today?

The Giants game is on here in New York.

Comment by livingonli on 10/21/2007 18:32:44
Giants up 19-7 at the half.

Comment by livingonli on 10/21/2007 20:25:31
Giants won 33-15. They are now 5-2 this season.

What a mismatch that NE-Miami game was. NE now 7-0 while Miami now 0-7.

Sounded like you had a good day. The Dali Lama speech must have been interesting. I wonder how he feels about Bush's war. Listening to Sammy while flipping between the games.



Jets are leading 13-3 over Cincy.

Well he is giving a public speech on Tuesday, I am thinking that I may go hear him myself. I mean, he is speaking about 10 minutes away from where I live... I would have to get there early enough to get a seat, but I think it might be one of those few once in a lifeime chances. Tomorrow we are going to see the MAndala on display at emory... they are taking it down on tuesday.

Comment by livingonli on 10/21/2007 21:48:54
Sounds like a lot of interesting stuff going on in the ATL. Maybe we should have a blog gathering there. Although I wouldn't mind the spring meet-up in DC.

Comment by livingonli on 10/21/2007 22:31:15
Is there going to be a Game 7 blog or will we just continue here?

Comment by TriSec on 10/21/2007 23:01:18
Coming right up!

Velveeta checking in, though I'll be multitasking a bit.

Hey Tri, guess you've heard this one before, yes? I got it off of another board:



Our Father, who art at Fenway...

Baseball be thy game.

Thy Kingdom come,

Playoffs need to be won,

On Earth, then on to the Cask 'n' Flagon.



Give us this day, a perfect Papi,

And forgive us our losses,

As we forgive those,

Like Bill Buckner.



And lead us not, into desperation,

But deliver us from any losses.



For thine is the Power,

And the Glory,

To beat the Indians,

Forever and ever....the Yankees still suck



A-men!
