Red Sox Country

A great thing about being in New Hampshire is that I'm back in Red Sox country.  That means that I get to watch the games on NESN, where they show all the pregame activities and such, and we get the Rem-dawg announcing the games.

Last night the Sox honored Pedro Martinez before the game, bringing him back to throw out the ceremonial first pitch.  Then, 5 year old Joshua Sacco brought the house down with an awesome adaptation of Herb Brooks's Miracle speech, modified for baseball, and the Sox-Yanks rivalry.  Apparantly this kid was already a mini-Youtube celebrity from Brooks speech, and even appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres Show.

"Their time is done. It's over.  I'm sick and tired of hearing about what a great baseball team the Yankees have. Screw 'em!  This is YOUR time!"

Way to go, kid, I have to admit it got a little dusty in the Kid Dynamite living room watching that on Opening Night last night...

I cannot believe baseball season has started. The long slog until NFL season is in full swing.

That kid is a freaky looking mutant.
