The new Eric Clapton

I'm now into my 33rd season of watching the Boston Red Sox.

I've seen Yaz and Rice. I've seen Freddy Lynn, the Rooster, George Scott, Jose Canseco, Fisk, Boggs, Clemens, Pedro, Big Papi, Manny. I've seen Tom Seaver (if only for a few months) I've seen Oil Can. Hurst. Bill Lee. The Eck. Remdawg.

I've seen Luis Tiant and Curt Schilling. Johnny Damon and Denny Doyle. Dewey and Stan 'fucking' Papi.

I saw Tony C at the beginning of the 1975 season. I saw Bruno make the catch.

I saw the Stones at Fenway...front row. Twice.

I've seen 'em all.

But ya wanna know something?

Mike Lowell is the new Eric Clapton. (and they said Eric Clapton was God.)

Yeah, but who would win in a fight: Mike Lowell or The Hulk?

You broke up a 'who is stronger, The Hulk or Mike Lowell?' thread for that?

Okay, so God, Mike Lowell, and the Hulk are all fighting zombies...

Who?

I read stuff about the Red Sox and Eric Clapton being God.

But Mike Lowell? Isn't he the guy from AAA who changed my flat tire last week?

As an aside, I walked BY Fenway Park a couple of weeks ago to bring my daughters to the most Hellish concert experience imaginable.

And I said "Hey girls, that's Fenway Park!" pretending me & Fenway were tight buddies.

Does that count?

cake,

Yeah. I've lost some brain cells recently. Do our good neighbors to the north have any they could spare me?
