The Things You Do For Love...

In an effort to get out of the house a little more often and away from our computers and the TV, Becca and I have been starting a weekly date night. Tonight, we had dinner downtown and caught a movie (Burn After Reading... Two cent reviews: disappointing effort from the Coen Bros.. Very disjointed though JK Simmons was awesome in his cameo). In the middle of the movie, my phone started vibrating away and wouldn't stop for a good few minutes.

The reason why?

The Cardiac Sox

Granted, when we left the restaurant, I poked my head into the bar and saw it was 5-0 Rays in the 7th. Having watched the rest of the series and saw the lack of life in the team, I presumed they were DONE. And as someone who a) saw the Red Sox win the 2004 World Series in person and b) can't believe the team has won two World Series in four years I kind of figured as a fan I'm playing with house money at this point.

Instead, Boston lives to see another day. As Becca so astutely pointed out, we got a date night and I get to watch the Sox play at least one more time this year :)
