Today's lunchtime walk was spoiled by the Papelbon jersey you might be able to make out on the guy on the left. Then, at the gym, someone had a green shirt that said "Papelbon's Pub" or something. I guess I just don't get what's so special about this guy. If he even makes it into a game, he only plays for around one inning. How hard is that? I can guarantee you that if you open my closet, you won't see a stash of Gregg Olson jerseys.
Meanwhile, I learned while doing my monthly check-in that the Orioles swept the Red Sox in their recent trip here, which just ended yesterday. (I meant to actually go to the games, but I found some horse tranquilizer, so I used that instead.) And by "swept" I mean, of course, an "Orioles sweep" — that is, that the Orioles recorded at least one hit in each game against Boston. Things are looking up.
