What I am thankful for
With tomorrow being Thanksgiving Day here in the U.S., I thought I’d write a post listing the things I’m thankful for, Red Sox edition.
- I am thankful Jason Bay is now playing left field for the Sox;
- I am thankful for Jon Lester’s heart,
- Dustin Pedroia’s attitude,
- and Kevin Youkilis’s eyes;
- I am thankful that I was able to listen to Ned Martin and Ken Coleman call Red Sox games on the radio,
- and that Jerry Trupiano is no longer calling Red Sox games;
- I am thankful the NY Yankees missed the playoffs in 2008;
- I am thankful Amalie Benjamin is reporting on the Sox for the Boston Globe;
- I am thankful for all the Boston fans who faithfully support the Red Sox each year and allow the team to have a high payroll;
- and I am thankful I was able to watch these players have their best years in baseball in Red Sox uniforms: Nomar Garciaparra, Dwight Evans; Jim Rice; Carlton Fisk, Fred Lynn, Wade Boggs, Rick Burleson, Rico Petrocelli, Luis Tiant, Bill Lee, Carl Yastrzemski, and Jason Varitek.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
