Wild Thing, I Think I Love You

So, yesterday’s Sox game was about the best game I have ever seen in person. It was seriously and truly Hawesome. I know, it didn’t start out so wonderful, and I am concerned about poor Wake… but boy was that an awesome last third.

Up in nose-bleed-behind-the-scoreboard-bleacher-land, we all knew Mirabelli was due. And when it went up, up, up, and out of the park, I could finally flip my hat back upright. Yeah, that’s right, I had my rally cap going during that seventh inning. My hat knows what to do.

And the eighth inning just reaffirmed my knowing love for Timlin, Manny, and Ortiz. A five-pitch perfect inning? Sweet! Oh man, and did you see Big Papi steal second? Unbelievable.

But really, it was the top of the ninth that made this the best experience I have ever seen or felt at a baseball game. This was my first chance to watch Paplebon in action. My first chance to feel the excitement as the crowd all knew what was coming. We were itching to stand up and cheer. And then it comes.

Wild Thing
You make my heart sing
You make everything
groovy
I said Wild Thing

We’re all clapping in time with the music. Up on our feet. Excited and ecstatic to know that we will be witnessing an 8-inning ballgame. And there he goes.

I was too busy screaming and hollering to notice, but apparently as he left the bullpen, he chest-bumped the police officer. He was ready. We were all ready. This game was over before they even announced it.

Wild Thing, I think I love you
But I wanna know for sure
Come on, hold me tight
I love you

He was already tossing to Mirabelli when the announcer came on. But he had other business to attend to first. “Now at second base, Alex Cora!” We tried so hard to be happy for him. We cheered, but we all wanted to save it for the right moment.

Wild Thing
You make my heart sing
You make everything
groovy
I said Wild Thing

Sometimes, it really is fun to hear what happens when the television has gone to commercial.

Wild thing, I think you move me

“Now pitching for the Red Sox…”

But I wanna know for sure

“Number fifty-eight…”

So come on, hold me tight

“Jonathan…”

You move me

“Papelbon!”

{djnn} {djnnnn} {djnn} {djnnnn} {djnn} {djnn} {djnn}…

It was the very definition of: “And the crowd goes wild.” Man… that was awesome.

    I am really loving the theme/design of your weblog.
    Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems?
    A couple of my blog visitors have complained
    about my blog not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox.
    Do you have any ideas to help fix this problem?

  30. I think what you composed was actually very logical. However, think about this, suppose
    you were to write a killer headline? I ain’t suggesting your information is not
    good, however what if you added something that grabbed people’s attention? I
    mean Wild Thing, I Think I Love You « d i
    n a n e . n e t is kinda vanilla. You should peek at Yahoo’s home page and watch how
    they create post titles to get people to click. You might add a video or a related
    picture or two to grab people interested about everything’ve written. Just
    my opinion, it might make your posts a little livelier.

  31. I believe everything posted was actually very reasonable.
    But, think on this, what if you were to create a awesome headline?
    I ain’t saying your content is not good, but suppose you
    added a post title that makes people desire more? I mean Wild Thing,
    I Think I Love You « d i n a n e . n e t is a little plain. You could
    peek at Yahoo’s front page and see how they write post headlines
    to grab viewers interested. You might add a related
    video or a related picture or two to grab people excited
    about everything’ve written. In my opinion, it might bring your posts a little
    livelier.

  32. I’m not sure why but this weblog is loading very slow for me.

    Is anyone else having this issue or is it a problem on my end?
    I’ll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.

  33. Appreciating the hard work you put into your website and in depth information you present.

    read! I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m including
