I get uptight watching today's game?
So while, I do envy those who could give a rats ass about sports...I wouldn't change my love for the local teams for nothing. Even if it means, I get a few anxious moments, that might cause me some discomfort.
a great time to be a sportsfan from New England.
sure and tune into that one. In fact, if Coach Mangenius doesn't
get heckled into submission I will be very surprised.
in closing about my Sports rant: I would hope that you New Englanders
who live outside the region take advantage of our good fortune. In fact,
feel free to rub it in. It's just bragging rights. Boasting about your
local teams in a hostile environment is one of life's greatest pleasures.
Go on, Piss a few friends off. This is what life as a sportsfan is all
about. And if they give you any grief, just use my line..."Now why
ya gotta be so hurtful?"
week I reported on the successful Fundraiser for Gary Ritchie. And
make no mistake about it, it was successful in more ways than just the money
we raised. It was deeper than that. In fact, Gary personally wrote
a thank you note and I will post it here this week.
message is to all who came and gave at the fundraiser. You all have my
complete gratitude and heartfelt thanks. I hope everybody had a great
time, I sure did! I was overwhelmed by the number of people who showed
up and how generously you gave. I want to thank everyone who worked hard
to put this on, including my family who was responsible for the food and
drink, my girl Dee, who worked before, during and after the party. I want
to thank the musicians who donated their time and services to play for
us, they were great, all of them. To the man who was behind the whole
thing, Ralph Fatello put this party together, good musician, good organizer,
good friend, thank you all very much." Gary Ritchie 12-8-07

Speaking of thank yous...I want to thank all of you who responded to my comments about that Big Headed bonehead from the West Coast who I wrote about last week. The guy who complained that I don't run enough California shots and that I'm too obsessed with those who live and die in New England. Thank you all for the many many positive feedback emails. You've just reconfirmed what I had hoped you all felt in the first place. Thank you all again.
the irony of all of this? I'm posting a bunch a California shots
this week. Unfortunately, none of the shots are his...oh well. Although,
I must say, that I was saddened to hear about the West Coast Surfer
who passed away during the Big Wednesday Swell this past week.
Peter Davi was 45yrs old. He drowned while swimming in from Ghost
Trees after losing his board. Speaking
