oh to be in boston tonight

Our girl Chicky went and got herself knocked up recently and is feeling like crap. She deserves a little Red Sox Nation goodness so when the Sox took the second game of the playoffs tonight I tipped my beer towards to the east. Chicky, our boys are rolling. I even apologized to Manny because I'd been bashing his lackluster fielding and at bats all night long - so when he smacked that ball into a walk off game winning home run I ate my words and I promised yet again to be a nicer person.

I don't know if it's the Sox or the infectious heart melting way J watches them, but either way I sit there all teary every time they pull it off.

Who's coming to watch Sunday's game? Beer's already on ice. O'Douls for Chicky, and all the other mamas who've knocked themselves up lately too.

Okay so you've got me clicking all those links to get the latest dish on who's pregnant . . .

So not knocked up. Hell, I'd be on the news as the Oldest Mom in the USA if I were. But I'm so pissed that the Sox games are on cable only. That totally sucks. We don't have cable. We've been 'watching' it online, but really... why on earth are playoff games on TBS? Doesn't Ted have enough money already?

If the world series is on cable, I might just fly down to Atlanta and knock some sense into Ted. Grrrr!

Amazing how many new mommies-to-be out there right now, no?

Have one for me; we don't get much baseball beamed at us over here.

I wish I could announce I am knocked up too maybe reading your post will give me luck.
God knows I can't keep having sex. I'm married & married people apparantly don't do that!

I'm too sad to come - my Mets blew it.

I love baseball. Our team is already out, but I'd watch a game with you any day.

Arwen said...

Watching the A's walk Papi and Manny not once but twice pissed me off. I am so glad it didn't work for them anyway.
Go Sox!

That is some collection of mommies.

Janet said...

Okay, fine. I will drink ALL of the beer that the preggo bloggers would have otherwise consumed.

I'm nice that way. ;)

KC said...

Pass on the O'Douls. I'm having a virgin pina colada in a pineapple with umbrellas. (this girliness is also reflected in my brain which is not programmed for sports-watching- but I'll comment on nice butts!)

meno said...

They knocked THEMSELVES up?

Wait until i tell the men they are no longer needed. :)

Pgoodness said...

Ok, who's chartering the plane from the midwest so we can all go have some cold ones and watch baseball??

Mrs. Chicky said...

Oh, hon, I couldn't love you more if I tried.

I'm pulling myself away from my toilet to comment on this, btw. Just the idea of a beer is making me nauseas, so you can have one (or three) for me.

But I had to stop and say *smooches* to my sister in Red Sox Nation - West Coast chapter.

good gravy that's a lot of pregnant bloggers. Is there something in the water?

I am having a serious case of empty womb syndrome

Susanne said...

Baseball? I don't have to know anything about that, do I? And there are a lot of pregnant bloggers out there. I'm grateful that I can have a beer, baseball or not.

(And I have to admit that the totally primitive, biological-driven part of me wants to be pregnant too. Not my conscious, intellectual part though because that part of me remembers how I felt when I was.)

Christine said...

am i too late to rsvp? i so need a beer.

Amanda said...

Damnit, the pregnancy has me two steps behind everyone and seriously slow on the uptake. But the Sox? With the Sox I never err. I missed the game this time, but can I come over next time? And though I am getting bigger by the milisecond, I promise to sit up on one cheek and take up less than one full place

Little Monkies said...

I'm a Red Sox fan by marriage, and I too get totally misty when they pull it off. Probably because husband spent his 43 years saying "this is the year, this is the year..." Eternal optimists, those folks. Good for the soul.

Glad we are in the same club.
